Yesterday the United States Supreme Court rules on two major gay rights cases and in the end gay rights activists came out very happy with the results of the two cases. Both cases have been going through the court systems for many years so this was the pivotal moment for both of the cases and in both cases the justices weighed on the side of support. This is great news for Americans that support gay rights as these two cases will in fact be two of the most influential cases for many years to come.
The two cases were very different in terms of what they gained, but they absolutely work together to fight for more equality and rights for gay couples around the United States. One of the rulings made it so it would no longer be legal to prevent gay couples from receiving federal funding and support like other married couples, this is a big step since it is one of the founding principles of marriage as a whole. The other case was less of a federal victory but it essentially allowed California to continue with gay marriage and will likely inspire other states to follow suit, this is absolutely phenomenal news for millions of people.
