June 26: A Landmark Day for Same-Sex Marriage

June 26 is a significant day for same-sex marriage rulings.

On this day in history in 2003, in Lawrence v. Texas, the court ruled that a Texas law that made it a crime for two people of the same gender to engage in intimate sexual conduct was unconstitutional.

On this day in history in 2013, in United States v. Windsor, the Supreme Court ruled the Defense of Marriage Act to be unconstitutional and helped pave the way for same-sex marriage to be legalized in California.

These decisions ultimately set the tone in the Overgefell v. Hodges decision to legalize same-sex marriage in all 50 states.

We're celebrating this historic day with #MAKERSPride with the video above.
