Today in Gay History

June 19, 2007

Legislation passed in the New York state Assembly to allow issuance of marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Assembly Member Daniel O'Donnell, was the prime sponsor of the Act. This was historic, but alas, the measure could never muster enough support in the upper House. This year (2 years later) things have heated up considerably, and the New York Senate is within 1 vote of finally passing legislation providing for marriage equality in that state. Baby steps, added together, become giant leaps.
