  • Love wins

    Today, history was made as bans against same-sex marriage were struck down nationwide.


    This morning, the Supreme Court ruled today that in the eyes of the law, love is love in all 50 states—regardless of who you are or whom you love.

    Excited about today's Supreme Court ruling? Me too.

    Make no mistake—we're here today because of people like you who fought long and hard to challenge prejudice, change hearts and minds, and overturn discriminatory laws.

    This is something we can all be proud of.

  • Proud to fight

    "The fact that we've come so far is exactly why we can't let up now."

    After years of struggles, setbacks, and resistance, we are making progress towards winning the fight for LGBT equality. But there's still more to do.

  • Here come the grooms

    This Valentine’s Day, some couples in Florida have something extra special to celebrate.

    On January 6th, Florida's ban on same-sex marriage ended, allowing Dylan and Nick—after years in a committed and loving relationship—to get married in the company of their family and friends.

    This is their story—and the reason why we're not going to stop fighting for marriage equality until it's the law in all 50 states.


  • This is about basic dignity—add your name if you agree

    It's about time that the law reflects that across the country.

  • A victory for marriage equality in Nevada

    State government officials declared Nevada's anti-gay marriage laws "no longer defensible."

    Nevada’s move is the latest domino to fall as courts around the country continue to rule that anti-same sex marriage legislation is unconstitutional and cannot be supported.

  • The path to victory in Illinois

    This is how you fight for marriage equality.

    Victory! Such a sweet and beautiful feeling after months of phone calls, canvassing, and boots-on-the-ground activism. This is how we did it.

  • Stand up for LGBT Americans

    No one should be fired for being gay or transgender.

    Polling shows that a clear majority of Americans—Republicans and Democrats—support the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) to protect lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender workers from being fired for who they are. Here's a look at the 29 states where there are no state laws protecting gay Americans from being fired for who they are.
