Kenneth Moton, an ABC News reporter, has always been outspoken about his sexuality, particularly the importance of same-sex marriage. When same-sex marriage became legal in the United States in 2015, he was overjoyed.
It’s been five years since gay marriage became legal
In June 2020, he will commemorate the fifth anniversary of the United States Supreme Court’s landmark ruling legalizing gay marriage with the ABC family. In 2015, the supreme court, in a long-awaited victory for the gay rights movement, ruled in favor of same-sex marriage by a 5-to-4 ruling, ensuring the right to same-sex marriage. The decision was the culmination of long-standing advocacy, and it was warmly welcomed by Americans. Moton was one of the many people who loudly praised the decision on social media.
The famous reporter not only shared his joy on social media at the moment, but he also attended one of the first lesbian weddings in New Jersey, further celebrating the milestone.

The well-known journalist confessed that his pre-pandemic wedding aided him in staying positive and putting things in perspective. Jones is the National Association of Community Health Centers’ director of Health Center Operations and HR Training.
Kenneth also shared a photo of himself and his husband from their wedding day, as well as a video of their reception party, on social media, which received a lot of positive feedback from fans and coworkers.
Moton’s social media posts show that the happy pair is very much in love. Despite the fact that Jones’ social media account is hidden, his wife’s Instagram posts are full of affection for both of them. For example, he wrote about how he and his husband had just celebrated one month of marriage.
