George Takei: Today marks a watershed moment in history and a tremendous victory for the principle of equality. The 5-4 decision by our Supreme Court striking down DOMA affirms the universality of love–the desire of all people not only to find, but to value and affirm, a lifelong commitment to another person…I have lived nearly four score years, and have borne witness to both the heartbreak and promise of true justice and equality in America. Today my heart soars, and my faith in the promise of our great nation is renewed…Now, if there’s anything we gays know how to do well, it is to celebrate! Let the joy of this day ring out with PRIDE.
Mike Birbiglia: Great news, I just married my cat.
Keith Lowell Jensen: Good morning. DOMA is dead! Prop 8 is dead! My heterosexual marriage seems fine so far, checking with wife… yes, we’re fine! WOOHOOO! Congrats everyone!
Manila Luzon: DOMA down!!! Let the marriage proposals begin!!! Get in line boys!
Neil Patrick Harris ✔ @ActuallyNPH: And Prop 8 was dismissed?!? Huzzah! Christmas comes six months early this year! (Less one day…)
