This morning, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that the Defense Of Marriage Act, or DOMA, was unconstitutional as a deprivation of the equal liberty of persons that is protected by the Fifth Amendment.
A number of musicians were quick to respond on Twitter with their support for the ruling in support of gay marriage. More to come, we imagine, as the West Coast wakes up and sees the big news.
Down w DOMA! Something to be very proud of this upcoming July 4th. We are making beautiful progress for Equality! #proud
