Lady Gaga: ‘Be proud, the prejudiced are now the minority’

Celebrities tweet about Prop 8 and DOMA

"We stand tall today," tweets Lady Gaga.

The decision by the Supreme Court of the United States to quash an appeal of Proposition 8 sparked a flurry of celebrity tweeting.

The top court on June 26 declined to review a lower court’s invalidation of the California law that banned same-sex marriage. 

The court also struck down the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).

"We stand tall today. #DomaStruckDown So many fought for so long. Be proud, the prejudice are now the minority." reads the tweet from Lady Gaga. 

The Los Angeles Times has collected tweets about Prop 8 and DOMA from 31 celebrities.
