US President Barack Obama said on Friday the Supreme Court decision making gay marriage legal nationwide was a "big step" toward equality.

"Today is a big step in our march toward equality. Gay and lesbian couples now have the right to marry, just like anyone else. #LoveWins," Obama said in a Twitter post.

The Supreme Court ruled that gay people have a right to marriage under the US Constitution.
