    Will June 26, 2013 and June 26, 2015 make each future June 26 "National LGBT Day"?

    In two 5-4 rulings of the United States Supreme Court (June 26, 2013 and June 26, 2015) identical 5-4 rulings first struck down key provisions of the Defense of Marriage Act and then made same sex marriages legal in all 50 states. Five justices of The Supreme Court thus redefined a centuries-old definition of marriage one step at a time, and did so in less than two years of considering what legal marriage should mean in America..

    The entire month of June is Pride Month for the LGBT community, with Pride events being celebrated across the country. I think June 26th will just get rolled into the month of celebrations.

    Pride is celebrated in June in part because on June 28th, 1969, the Stonewall Riots began. Stonewall is generally thought of as the starting point of today's LGBT activism.
