These New Yorkers' Responses To The Legalization Of Same-Sex Marriage Are Absolutely Beautiful

Love won.

On June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled, in a 5 to 4 vote, that same-sex marriage will be legalized in all 50 states. Twitter reacted, President Obama gave a resounding speech and many LGBT Americans (along with the people who love and support them) celebrated, cheering and crying, that the new ruling that will permit them, no matter what state they live in, to claim their love legally and be recognized in the eyes of the law. 

A Plus is based in New York City, so we decided to head on down to the famous Stonewall Inn, the place where the Stonewall Riots occurred which marked the beginning of the gay rights movement, to see what LGBT New Yorkers (and allies) had to say about the historic move.

We really wanted to know why the ruling is so important and what it means to them. Their answers were no less than moving.
