New York Approves Gay Marriage

Make no mistake about it, this is an enormous win for the Gay and Lesbian community

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has already signed the historic legislation.   All of this comes on the heels of the Gay Pride week-end celebration and parade in New York City.  I anticipate the celebration will be bigger than ever before (and it’s always huge.)

New York legalized same-sex marriage, becoming the sixth state to do so and by far the largest. Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the bill into law Friday night, saying “I am very proud of New York and I’m very proud of the statement we made today.” The law will go into effect in 30 days, meaning same-sex couples will be able to get married as soon as the end of July. The legislation went down to the wire in a late vote Friday, with its fate pivoting on just a few undecided Republican state senators. But four Republicans eventually swung toward a yes vote, sealing a final tally of 33-29.

    Andrew Cuomo showed real leadership. He’ll be President some day. Remember you heard it here first.

    • Actually after hearing about his dedication and determination in getting the bill passed and seeing pictures of him on Lawrence O’Donnell’s show, I said the same thing to myself last evening. LOL So, good call LTL. I agree.

    While I do know that this is a good time for Gays & Lesbians in my opinion bisexuals and transgender people have no business in our community and can only confuse further legislation and people coming to give us marriage equality in all states of America.
