June 26 carries a special significance for the LGBT community

Today is June 26th. For LGBT people, the day has very special significance. Three major Supreme Court cases were decided on this day in history.

⚖️ It’s been exactly 5 years since Obergefell v Hodges, the 2015 ruling which ushered in the freedom to marry for same-sex couples nationwide

🗽It’s been 7 years since US v Windsor, the 2013 ruling which struck down the federal Defense of Marriage Act and helped pave the way for marriage equality nationwide.

🏳️‍🌈 It’s been exactly 17 since Lawrence v TX, the 2003 ruling that struck down Texas’s sodomy law as an unconstitutional deprivation of liberty.

Our fight for liberty and equality continues!
