We did it!
On June 24, 2011, New York State made history when the State Senate passed legislation giving lesbian and gay couples the freedom to marry. Gov. Andrew Cuomo immediately signed the Marriage Equality Act into law.
Our elected officials - Democrats and Republicans alike - have stood on the right side of history by supporting fairness and equality for all New Yorkers. Please take a moment to thank them for their leadership in securing this victory.
And remember: We still have work to do. Countless lesbian and gay people throughout the nation are still legally prohibited from marrying the person they love. We'll keep working until the federal government and all 50 states embrace marriage fairness.
