With the Marriage Equality Act set to take effect on Sunday, 24 July, granting all New York couples the right to marry, I’m absolutely ecstatic to call myself a New Yorker! This weekend, 823 gay couples will say “I will” or “I do” thanks to the New York legislature seeing the light a month ago. That’s right, the stars are aligning for my Liza Minnelli loving friends, and I’m tickled pink about it. It’s truly a victory for individual couples, marriage equality, and human rights. Here’s a story about how a few couples will celebrate this monumental victory. Here’s a link to what the ACLU is doing to advance LGBT rights. And here’s why I’m proud to be a Brooklyn Episcopalian.

To all of you tying the knot on Sunday, mazel tov!
