Same-sex marriage is a constitutional right. That was the historic ruling handed down today by the U.S. Supreme Court. Justice Anthony M. Kennedy wrote the majority opinion in the 5 to 4 decision, handing Ohioan Jim Obergefell a victory in his landmark lawsuit Obergefell v. Hodges.

Social media reacted in a burst of color and hashtags. Here's the reaction from several gay rights supporters with Ohio ties:
