In an interview with Kal Penn on March 14th, 2023, Joe Biden described a time in his life which he said was an epiphany regarding gay marriage. He said:

I can remember exactly when my epiphany [on supporting gay marriage] was … I was a senior in high school. And my dad was dropping me off and I remember I was about to get out of the car and I looked to my right and two well-dressed men in suits kissed each other. … And I’ll never forget, I turned and looked at my dad and he said “Joey, its simple they love each other. It’s simple.” … It’s just that simple, it doesn’t matter whether its same-sex or heterosexual couple you should be able to be married.

In 1996 Joe Biden voted for the Defense of Marriage Act. Joe Biden was 53 years old at the time.

The Defense of Marriage Act is an act that stated Marriage is defined as being between a man and a woman.

The Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) (Pub.L. 104–199, 110 Stat. 2419, enacted September 21, 1996, 1 U.S.C. § 7 and 28 U.S.C. § 1738C) was a United States federal law that, prior to being ruled unconstitutional, defined marriage for federal purposes as the union of one man and one woman, and allowed states to refuse to recognize same-sex marriages granted under the laws of other states. Until Section 3 of the Act was struck down in 2013 (United States v. Windsor), DOMA, in conjunction with other statutes, had barred same-sex married couples from being recognized as “spouses” for purposes of federal laws, effectively barring them from receiving federal marriage benefits. DOMA’s passage did not prevent individual states from recognizing same-sex marriage, but it imposed constraints on the benefits received by all legally married same-sex couples.

In the following video, Joe Biden talks about how he has voted for this bill, what it means, and how he defined Marriage at the time of the interview.

It is important to note that politicians can and do change their positions on topics as they proceed throughout their political career. This fact-check is not passing judgment on switching one’s views on a topic, only that the stated views do not line up with the timeline provided while explaining the views in question.
