A part of me and I am sure a part of many others are saying, what took so long! Regardless of how overdue this bill is...I along with many other NY'ers feel very proud to live in a state in which all love is created equal. It is unfathomable to me that we live in such a country which will recognize the marriage of two drunk strangers by an Elvis impersonator yet will not recognize the true love, companionship and trust between a couple purely based on their gender. Thank you NY for recognizing this hypocrisy and helping right the situation.
I am proud to live in a state that recognizes the basic human rights of all of its citizens...it's about time!
Now time to celebrate! Saturday there was Gay Field Day in Prospect Park, rallies and marches in the city, and today is the parade!
