NY Same-Sex Marriage Bill officially signed at 11:55 pm June 24, 2011.
New York says “I Do”, finally. I am so happy for all the lives that this bill will change. I am so happy for all the momentum this bill will bring! Let’s keep this going - even if we need to tackle this one state at a time. It is not right to deny someone, anyone, their rights, their equality, their happiness.
Our voices matter - for days and days now my twitter and facebook and tumblr feeds have all been about #NY4M. Think of all the emails sent to each Senator. That’s power people, and we need lots more of it.
To those who are against it, why? what effect does this have on your marriage? Here’s the thing - it doesn’t. Why are you so adamant to deprive people of the ups and downs and ultimate joys of marriage? Who are you to deny someone else of such a basic right?
As if I needed another reason to love NY.
