Beyoncé, Madonna, and many other celebrities have spoken out in support of gay marriage on social media this week as the Supreme Court reviewed arguments on California's Proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act.

"If you like it you should be able to put a ring on it #WeWillUnite4MarriageEquality," Beyoncé, known for her hit song "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)," posted on her Instagram account, along with a photo of the Human Rights Campaign's red equal sign.

The Supreme Court deliberated California’s Proposition 8 on Tuesday, which bans the right for same-sex couples to marry. On Wednesday, arguments were heard regarding the national Defense of Marriage Act, which has legally defined marriage as a union between a man and a woman since 1996.

The court is expected to issue a ruling by the end of June, but several justices have reportedly indicated interest in striking down a law that denies federal benefits to legally married same-sex couples, presenting the possibility of a major change in gay marriage law.

Madonna also posted a note of support on her Instagram account.

"Marriage equality!" she wrote. "Let's start a revolution."

A handful of other celebrities spoke out on Twitter in support of same-sex marriage.
