Gay Marriage Supreme Court ruling celebrated by tech brands and leaders alike

This morning the United States Supreme Court announced that same-sex marriage would be legalized across the USA. According to the official decision document, “The Court, in this decision, holds same-sex couples may exercise the fundamental right to marry in all States.” In response, just about every tech company and brand associate have taken the opportunity to celebrate the decision with rainbow flags, jumps for joy, and everything in-between. Companies like Google, Motorola, and Twitter as well as high-profile leaders in tech like Apple’s Tim Cook are amongst those joining in on the revels.

To see the original document released by the supreme court, head over to Supreme Court (dot) gov where a PDF will await you. Above you’ll see the key line in this document. This document makes it illegal for government institutions to deny marriages between same-sex partners.

YouTube is celebrating with rainbow-colored social networking icons and one whole lot of pointers towards the video you’re about to see. This video is part of a #ProudToLove collection of videos and was made for LGBT Pride Month.

Twitter is celebrating with their own hashtag. Tweeting #LoveWins in any Tweet will display a tiny rainbow heart emoji.
