Tuesday, gay marriage goes back to the Supreme Court, in the form of the case Obergefell v. Hodges, but before that happens politicians, celebrities and some well known brands took to Twitter to show their support. Using the hashtag #LoveMustWin, pols like Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., along with celebrities including Gloria Estefan, wrote inspirational messages and posted pictures. #LoveMustWin was created by the pro-same-sex marriage group Freedom to Marry as a way for backers to show their support on social media.
Here’s a sampling of the most talked about tweets:
