Finally: New York Legalizes Gay Marriage!

Hooray! As most of you probably already know, last night New York State senators voted 33-29 to legalize gay marriage, and Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the bill into law. New York is the sixth state to pass marriage equality legislation, and by far the most populous one to do so. “This vote today will send a message across the country,” Governor Cuomo said. “This is the way to go, the time to do it is now, and it is achievable; it’s no longer a dream or an aspiration. I think you’re going to see a rapid evolution… We reached a new level of social justice.” Needless to say, many New Yorkers agree. [Photo via BoingBoing]
