Outside the Stonewall Inn, as a crowd was celebrating the Supreme Court’s same-sex marriage ruling, I met Don Russell, 84, and his 100-year-old partner, Charles Schaeffer.
These two men have been together for 62 YEARS. 
When they started dating, Harry Truman was president. It was an entirely different world for gay men, to put it mildly. 
"You couldn’t walk around like this," said Don, looking down. Their hands were clasped tightly together.

National Organization for Marriage ‘outraged’ by ‘illegitimate’ court rulings

I love NOM’s website. It’s so poorly done and it’s breaking news bring me laughter. “Dump Starbucks!” - Yeah, good luck with that. “10,000 Marched for Marriage!” - Can anyone find me a number of how many people were at the Supreme Court supporting the overturn of DOMA/Prop 8? ” 1,200,000 Stand With Us!”

Scenes of celebration following today’s rulings on Prop. 8, DOMA

The Supreme Court handed two major victories to the gay marriage movement this morning, ruling a key part of the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional, and effectively ending Proposition 8 in California.

You can read the full opinions of the court here, or just keep looking at the joy over the rulings captured above.

“We met when I left a funny comment on a blog post. I was living in Australia when I wrote the comment, and it made her laugh in Austria. So she sent me an email, and we began writing to each other everyday. Eventually we met. I was afraid the excitement would fade when we met face-to-face, but it never did. We got married last week, on the seventh anniversary of that comment.”
