    Melissa Etheridge, an out lesbian and avowed rocker, plans to wed fiancée Linda Wallem in the wake of the DOMA announcements.

    To CNN, Etheridge joyfully said, "It is about family and I love my four kids. I called my now-fiancee. I'm looking forward to marrying my partner of three years. I'm going to get married in the state of California. I woke (the kids) up this morning telling them the Supreme Court ruling on DOMA. I love everybody out there. It's a great day. Love is love and America is beautiful...I'm proud to be an American."

    Etheridge and former partner, actress Tammy Lynn Michaels, split rather acrimoniously in 2010. The former couple shares custody of seven-year-old twins Johnnie and Miller. The singer also has two children from a previous relationship with Julie Cypher, who is no longer a lesbian.
