List of supporters of same-sex marriage in the United States

Supporters of same-sex marriage in the United States are American citizens (most notably, current and former political officeholders), political and other organizations, and religious denominations, who support extending the right to marry to same-sex couples. The reform of marriage law has been the focus of many LGBT social movements. Same-sex marriage has gained the official support of several U.S. political parties, including the Democratic,[1] Libertarian, Green, an increasing portion of the membership and elected leadership of the Republican Party, along with various other minor political parties.
