This morning the Supreme Court declared same sex marriage as a right in all 50 glorious states. A relatively small but growing crowd is already gathering outside newly minted city landmark and iconic gay bar the Stonewall Inn to celebrate.

The celebrations are joyous and emotional.

Others are gathering outside Big Gay Ice Cream:

There will be a rally tonight.

The court ruling and landmark certification come on the anniversary week of the 1969 riots at the Stonewall Inn that helped spur the modern LGBTQ movement.

Yup, this seems about right.
