It's no secret Beyonce is known for women empowerment and equality. Recently she chimed in to express where she stands regarding same sex marriage rights, as the Supreme Court currently is involved in debate over laws that would grant same sex marriages the same federal benefits given to heterosexual married couples.

King Bey not only posted a message on her tumblr that read she also used Instagram to get her message across:

“If you like it you should be able to put a ring on it. We will unite4marriageequality. B”

Over the past few years, the LGBT community has had plenty of victories as several states including New York began to allow same-sex marriages, however, the Defense of Marriage Act law still discriminates against same-sex couples by denying them federal benefits, like social security and filing of joint tax returns.
