Other celebs had plenty of love for the new legislation, and shared their emotions on Twitter.

Lady Gaga tweeted, “The revolution is ours to fight for love, justice+equality. Rejoice NY, and propose. We did it!!!”

Katy Perry wrote, “NEW YORK! I ♥ U! You’re OFFICIALLY the coolest place on the planet! #PRIDE #EQUALITYFORALL! #CELEBRATE!”
