The Gay Men's Chorus of Washington, D.C. celebrated the Supreme Court's historic ruling on same-sex marriage this morning with an emotional performance. 

Dressed in matching blue T-shirts, the men crooned a rousing version of "The Star-Spangled Banner" on the steps of the Supreme Court itself.

On Friday afternoon, celebrations were going on around the country, including in New York and San Francisco, often cited as the respective birthplaces of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights movement.
