On April 28, the US Supreme Court will definitively answer whether the Constitution allows states to ban same-sex marriage and whether they can refuse to recognize same-sex marriages legally performed elsewhere. In preparation for this historic day, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has crafted a touching supercut featuring memorable LGBT moments from television and movies.
Clips from Thirtysomething, Longtime Companion, The Kids Are All Right, Roseanne, Glee, ER, Orange is the New Black, Will and Grace, In & Out, Transparent, The Wire, The Golden Girls, The Real World, Northern Exposure, Friends, The Simpsons, Parks and Recreation, Grey’s Anatomy, Modern Family, and The Birdcage are presented while Tegan & Sara’s “Closer” plays in the background. Check it out below.
