8 LGBT cartoonists share their reactions to legal same-sex marriage

 

Fusion asked several prominent LGBT cartoonists to draw their reactions to last Friday’s historic Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex marriage across the country. Some crafted funny, often thoughtful comics on the meaning of marriage — like Sophie Yanow, who asks, “Now that we have access, are we ready to pull it apart?” — and some just had fun.
