Thank You Governor Paterson Marriage Equality Rally

17 05 2009




Marriage Equality activists from Civil Rights Front & Marriage Equality New York gathered for a rally on Sunday outside of David Paterson’s offices to show gratitude for the same sex marriage legislation Paterson introduced. The legislation passed the House and will move onto the Senate. but with a slim Democratic marjority in the senate there are still some Democratic senators like George Onorato of the 12th district in Queens and Ruben Diaz of the Bronx opposing the bill. 

Groups rallied later in the evening with Senator Tom Duane & celebrities including Cynthia Nixon and David Hyde Pierce at a Broadway Impact event partnering also with the Human Rights Campaign, Empire Pride Agenda, and Broadway Cares.
