LGBT Couples in History

In celebration of today's historic decision by the Supreme Court, I've gathered a few images celebrating all of the men and women who have bravely fought for their right to love freely throughout history. To all those LGBT community, you've waited too long for this moment, that can't be denied, but the moment has finally come here in the United States, and I rejoice with you!

"No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right." - Justice Anthony Kennedy
