Big changes have been happening for gay New Yorkers and it has been wonderful!!!! We went through two weeks of hell at the end of June waiting for the NY senate to vote on marriage equality. It was an emotional roller coaster, but in the end the decision came down in our favor! We went into Manhattan that night to join hundreds of people outside of The Stonewall Inn. It was an amazing feeling and all we could do was cry we were so happy.
The law actually went into effect today and over 800 couples are being married today!!!! So, "C" and I are getting married on FRIDAY!!! I can' t believe that in 5 days I will be a married woman. This is a tremendous victory for equality and I can only hope that NY will help lead the way for the rest of the states.
