Gay rights activists can finally celebrate long-awaited good news: the Supreme Court has legalized gay marriage nationwide!

With same-sex marriages legal in 36 states and the District of Columbia already, the ruling does not come as a total shock, though perhaps later than many would have liked.

Now, the remaining 14 states in the South and Midwest regions can no longer ban gay marriage.

And the celebrities are celebrating too!
