President Barack Obama has received a card signed by more than 75,000 people from around the globe thanking him for supporting gay marriage.

On Tuesday, the international group delivered the card to the White House – 6 days after the president made his historic announcement. The card was accepted by Gautam Raghavan, the LGBT liaison to the White House.

“This is an incredible, historic moment with huge implications globally and in the U.S.,” said Andre Banks, executive director of human rights group “As many countries around the world continue to ban same-sex marriage, and 76 nations criminalize people because of who they love, President Obama has just stood up to boldly say that all love is equal. This story is going to be told around the world and President Obama – and journalists on every continent – must know that millions are on his side.”

Also gathering signatures in support of Obama's stance on marriage equality is the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC). The committee is run by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Washington Senator Patty Murray. At the group's website, supporters can add their name to a petition which simply states: “I stand with President Obama in support of marriage equality.”
