Ricky Martin, Bette Midler, Kathy Griffin and Chely Wright are among the celebrities cheering the start of a gay marriage law in New York.
Happy couples began marrying soon after midnight as the law took effect.
â€œTo all Sunday’s couples: your walk down the aisle has been a long one â€¦ congratulations on finally making it to the altar!â€ entertainer Bette Midler messaged.
â€œCongrats to all the newlyweds in NY! Bottoms up! The first day of marriage #equality. Next, FEDERAL equality!â€ comedian Kathy Griffin tweeted to her nearly 1 million followers.
Country music singer Chely Wight, who came out gay last year and recently announced her own engagement, chimed in: â€œGood morning from Nashville 🙂 Exciting day for New York!!! #MarriageEquality.â€
