ReYaktions to Marriage Equality

Community
Marriage Equality

Last Friday, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled in favor of marriage equality for all Americans, no matter their gender or sexual orientation. This ruling ended gay marriage bans that were in effect in 14 states.

Not long after the decision was announced, the internet lit up as people around the world weighed in on the historic decision. From the Facebook profile pictures to the company logos that all started taking on the colors of the rainbow, it’s been a really powerful past few days.

Here at Yik Yak, our team was thrilled when we heard the ruling. And naturally, we began using Peek to see what yakkers worldwide were saying as well. As Pride month draws to a close, we thought we’d share just a few of the yaks that resonated most strongly with our team.
