Celebrities React to Defense of Marriage Act's Unconstitutional Ruling

Celebrities are speaking out about the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), calling it unconstitutional to restrict federal marriage benefits to same sex couples.

“DOMA singles out a class of persons deemed by a State entitled to recognition and protection to enhance their own liberty,” the Supreme Court ruling read.

“Down w DOMA! Something to be very proud of this upcoming July 4th. We are making beautiful progress for Equality! #proud” Adam Lambert tweeted.
