A bill permitting same-sex marriage was passed by the New York state legislature on June 24, 2011. The bill was signed by Governor Andrew Cuomo shortly before midnight on the 24th, and the law will take effect 30 days later.
On 6/24/11, I joined New Yorkers in celebrating this historic occasion. On this day we took the next big step on our national journey toward a more perfect union: http://bit.ly/lAL83w
I'm so proud to be a New Yorker! However, I hope to repeal the discriminatory DOMA policy so binational couple can actually stay together in the United States and not get deported regardless of states
