Landmark! Historic! There is no other way to describe the ruling by US Supreme Court making same-sex marriage a legal right in the country. And this video by YouTube shows us the long road taken by the movement before it finally became a reality.

You have to be proud of the court that allowed people the right to choose who they can love and create a life with. “No longer may this liberty be denied,” said Justice Anthony M. Kennedy of the US Supreme Court.

Through the ad, YouTube celebrates the victory of the community.  Titled #ProudToLove, this one is a winner and kudos to YouTube, a long supporter of gay rights.

AdWeek rightly notes that “the first part of this video includes clips played through the familiar YouTube interface, reminding us that gay people have often turned to YouTube to broadcast their struggles for acceptance—and their moments of transcendence when it happens.”

Go Viral recommends the video because

1) Its is relevant and timely. The struggle of the gay community to be accepted as part of society and as families comes through beautifully.

2) YouTube uses itself as a medium and strikes the right balance as an ad and campaign.

3) We support US Supreme Court decision to allow same-sex marriage. Hello, Indian Supreme Court?
