People on the street cheer after the New York Senate passed a bill legalizing gay marriage in New York June 24, 2011.
The state legislature of New York tonight made same-sex marriages legal. New York now becomes the sixth state to allow gay people to get married, and the most populous state to do so. Reuters: "State senators voted 33-29 to approve marriage equality legislation introduced by Governor Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat in his first year of office."
Gov. Cuomo has already signed the bill, so it will become law 30 days from now.
Human rights, dignity, equality, gift registries, tax breaks, divorces, and everlasting love for all.
