Celebrated documentary maker Michael Moore has taken to Twitter to celebrate the news that marriage between same-sex couples is now legal in the United States.
“Court overturns the bigoted Michigan constitutional amendment prohibiting gay marriage in 2004. Now legal in all 50 states! Hate loses!
“NEVER AGAIN will it be referred to as “gay marriage”. It’s now called “marriage.” #SCOTUSMarriage

“How far we’ve come since the Pres Obama & Sen. Clinton ran against gay marriage in 2008! People can change. Never give up. #SCOTUSMarriage.”
Justices at the Supreme Court Of The United States have voted 5-4 in favour of legalising gay marriage across all states in the US. This means that marriage between same-sex couples is now legal in the 14 states in which a ban was still in place.
The vote has been described as the biggest shake in civil rights in fifty years.
