History has been made in the movement towards equality.
Today is a big step in our march toward equality. Gay and lesbian couples now have the right to marry, just like anyone else. #LoveWins

As the news broke, reactions exploded across social media. From the White House to celebrities, millions of people voiced their support and happiness over the decision.
