USA Law - Same sex marriage legal in all 50 states



It is Gay Pride weekend in London and also in New York.

Just in time for Pride, the US Supreme Court has ruled that under the 14th amendment, same sex couples are to be accorded the same marital rights as opposite sex couples.

This means that Marriage equality finally becomes law in all 50 states of the USA.  Back as recent as 2009 only one state in the USA granted equality.   This act finally brings the USA, which prides itself as a forward thinking nation, in step with the human rights extended to all European citizens a decade ago.

Gay Pride in London City begins tomorrow at 9am SL / 5pm UK.
