This year, HRC celebrates a particularly special Valentine's Day: Today we mark the first Valentine’s Day since the Supreme Court’s historic decision in favor of nationwide marriage equality.
Prior to the Supreme Court’s ruling, brave plaintiff couples from all 50 states stood up, fought back against regressive laws and helped expand equal rights for all. They lived openly and honestly, sharing their stories of struggle and love with the nation, moving hearts and minds like never before.
Today we celebrate all of these couples, as well as all LGBT people and families, who continue to fight in the name of love. Whether it's for equal rights, visibility or acceptance, we celebrate and thank you for your ongoing support.
