It’s been just over half a century since the landmark Loving v. Virginia case, in which the United States Supreme Court deemed that any laws barring interracial marriage were unconstitutional. Since then, society has slowly embraced interracial relationships. And it’s not just heterosexual couples who have enjoyed the freedom to love who they want, same-sex couples have enjoyed the same right over the years as well and can now legally marry whomever they want in several of our nation’s states.

Surprisingly, a 2012 analysis of the 2010 U.S. Census revealed that same-sex couples were more likely to be interracial or inter-ethnic compared to their heterosexual counterparts. The analysis found that 20.6 percent, or more than 1 in 5 same-sex couples, were interracial or inter-ethnic.

And the celebrity world definitely has a number of interracial gay couples. Check out some of the most famous interracial same-sex couples below. –nicholas robinson
