Earlier today (June 26), the US Supreme Court ruled that same-sex marriage is now a legal right across the United States.
In the light of the historic ruling, the 14 states that continued to deny same-sex couples the right to marry will no longer be able to enforce their bans. President Barack Obama hailed the ruling as a “victory for America” and said: “When all Americans are treated as equal, we are all more free.”
Many stars from the music world have since voiced their approval for the ruling on social media, often using the hashtag #LoveWins. Check out a selection of their responses below, including tweets from Pharrell, Lady Gaga and Tyler, The Creator.
