Who Supports Marriage Equality?
President Barack Obama made headline news recently when he publicly announced that he supports gay marriage, making him the first sitting President to proclaim approval of marriage equality.
In an interview on Good Morning America the President said, “I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married.” He added, “I am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying gay men, women marrying women, and heterosexual men and women marrying another are entitled to the same exact rights, all the civil rights, all the civil liberties.”
After his announcement, celebrities came out to second his opinion.

After President Obama’s support of gay marriage, Jay-Z came out saying, “I’ve always thought it as something that was still holding the country back. What people do in their own homes is their business and you can choose to love whoever you love." He continued saying, "That’s their business. It's no different than discriminating against blacks. It’s discrimination plain and simple.” Source: TMZ
