President Obama To Declare June 26 National 'Equality Day'|The Gaily Grind
President Barack Obama has announced his intention to make June 26 a federal holiday, to be known as National Equality day, a day to celebrate all those fought for the right to marry the person they love.
On June 26, 2003, a divided Supreme Court decided that a Texas law making it a crime for two persons of the same sex to engage in intimate sexual conduct was unconstitutional. The decision helped strike down all remaining anti-sodomy laws in the U.S.
On June 26, 2013, the Supreme Court reinstated same-sex marriage in California in Hollingsworth v. Perry and in a 5-4 decision, ruled that Article 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act (or DOMA) was unconstitutional, calling it a “deprivation of the equal liberty of persons that is protected by the Fifth Amendment” in United States v. Windsor.
And finally, on June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court decided once and for all that same-sex couples have the constitutional right to marry across all 50 states in Obergefell v. Hodges.
