It's no secret that today was absolutely historic, and "about damn time."
Luckily, the folks at the Daily Dot made a GIF showing the progression of marriage equality over the last 40 years in the United States.
They used this timeline to create the GIF, which highlights everything from a county clerk in Colorado issuing marriage licenses to six same-sex couples in 1975...
To the steps taken by California and Vermont to give certain allowances to domestic partnerships and legal unions...
To the marriage equality victory of today.
Whoops! An earlier version of this post listed the number of years as 30 instead of 40. Math, right?
