LISTEN: NPR: Despite Supreme Court Ruling, Americans Remain Split On Same-Sex Marriage

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

More reaction now on today’s historic Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage. The announcement set off a party atmosphere among the hundreds of people gathered outside of the court.

LUDDEN: Same-sex marriage supporters say they, too, have more work to do. Gabriel Blau of the Family Equality Council says discrimination against gays and lesbians is still legal in the workplace and elsewhere.

GABRIEL BLAU: You can get married on Sunday and then fired on Monday. Or you can be denied housing. Or you can be denied public accommodations walking into a restaurant, a store or other public institutions. We need to ensure that that is not the case.

LUDDEN: But Blau says today is one for celebration. Gays, lesbians and their supporters this evening are rallying in dozens of cities across the country. Jennifer Ludden, NPR News.
