Same-sex marriage

Background info

On April 28, 2015, the US Supreme Court heard arguments on the question of the freedom to marry in Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio and Michigan.

On June 26 the Supreme Court ruled 5-4, that states cannot ban same-sex marriage.


Though most Americans oppose discrimination against LGBT people, and many believe that it’s already illegal—it’s not.

Federal laws don’t ban discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity the way they do regarding sex and religion.
