McKellen hails Supreme Court’s decision to legalise same-sex marriage

New York, June 27 (IANS) Award-winning actor Ian McKellen says the US Supreme Court’s decision to legalise same-sex marriage is “a great relief”.

“Very excited city. Congratulations, America,” McKellen, who is here, told Thomas Roberts of MSNBC during a phone interview, reports

He added that he hopes America’s decision will influence countries around the world who have yet to accept same-sex marriage as a right.

“It’s a great relief. Strange that it all rest on the decision of one of the judges, but he fortunately landed on the right side so everyone can heave a sigh of relief. And America now joins in all the other countries who’ve been doing the same thing.
