New York Believes In Equality! Legalizes Same Sex Marriage!!!!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayLGBT


Yes! Yes! Yes!!!!!!!

In a vote of 33-29 the New York state Senate voted in favor of same-sex legislation on Friday, thanks to four Republican senators who joined with their Democratic counterparts to recognize the right of ALL New Yorkers to the protections and privileges that come with civil marriage.

The New York state Assembly approved the measure last week. And NY Governor Andrew Cuomo, who strongly supports the measure, is expected to sign it into law any second now. It will go into effect 30 days later, meaning same-sex couples could begin marrying in New York by midsummer.

New York now joins Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and the District of Columbia in treating all of their residents the same and allow same-sex couples the access to civil marriage.

Equality for ALL!

Separate but equal is not equal!!!

    Re: lorraine84 – You may have your reasons for not supporting this, but if you really think about it, gay people getting married cannot affect YOUR marriage, or your friends marriages. 'Traditional' marriage still exists and is not threatened by this at all.

    Re: lorraine84 – Tradional or not, this is SIMPLE human rights. This is equality. To not be for it , is saying straight people deserve mroe rights than gay, and as well are better than them, and hold a higher position. Very God like.
    Typical ignorant Christian

  17. 17

    Hopefully the last.

    marriage is a comittment before God, family and friends……

    gays don't need it to have a relationship…

    Prop 8 in Cali will stay away…..hahahhahaahha

  18. 18

    I really wish for once someone could give me a good reason against gay marriage…
    Oh wait, there isn't one.

  19. 19

    This is great news!! Congrats new yorkers

  20. 20

    Congrats to my state of New York. I don't judge anyone and to each it's own. Congrats! I know that if I had a chile that turned out to be gay that I would want them to be just as happy as my straight child.

  21. 21

    woohoo congratulations NY! I´m living in Argentina and it is already legal here. Believe me, traditional marriages have stayed the same, no heterosexual people have died. Gay people are finally treated by the law by what they are: PEOPLE WITH RIGHTS.

  22. 22

    Happy Pride Everyone! Andrew Cuomo for PRESIDENT 2016!!!!!!!!!!

  23. 23

    This site really is turning into a joke. By making us click on a "read the rest of this entry" you are alienating the people who have been reading this site for ages. I'm tired of it and my time coming to this site just came to a screeching halt. Do you even care about your readers anymore? ***CLICK HERE TO READ THE REST OF MY COMMENT
    SO LAME!

    Nice to hear, but no big deal. Till its Federal, its only symbolic. See what it means on April 15 or when one leaves the state. Nada.

    Re: gajamm – oh lordy………you have just wiped away all the hard fought years of obtaining gay equality and respect, with one foul sweep (aka post in this case).

    Re: Team Kim Richards – So is my marriage not legal, since not one single word referring to God was mentioned in my marriage ceremony and vows? Since I don't believe in God, does that invalidate my marriage? You're a moron; I hope you know that.

  31. 31

    As a divorce attorney I'm thrilled. Gay divorce rates will be staggering. $$$$

  32. 32

    This is amazing

  33. 33

    Re: NookiesWA – Douchebag. Why are you even on a gay guy's blog if you feel that way!?Re: Team Kim Richards – Tell that to all the heterosexuals that get divorced and/or cheat on the person they committed to before God, family & friends.

  34. 34

    ew. that's so gross. being gay should be illegal. it's disgusting having to watch guys kissing guys or girls kissing girls. that's just really disturbing. those people are sick. remind me never to go to new york. i'll beat those gay freaks up if their kissing in public. that's disgusting.

  35. 35

    Re: white_is_ugly – I feel bad for you. For being such a close minded evil individual who is unable to accept any difference in the world and hanging on tight to the belief that unless your all the same, it makes us disgusting people. If this is the kind of thinking that gets you into heaven, i'll more than gladly walk into hell. I'd rather go through life being the unique individual i am than a sheep.
    AND CONGRATS TO NEW YORK!!! I've always wanted to visit NYC, this is just one more reason to add to the list.

  36. 36

    There goes the neighboorhood!!!

  37. 37

    congrats NY, over here in CT nothing has changed because gay people are allowed to get married, welcome to the year 2011, its time to have equal rights for all this is a big victory for gays/gay rights activists. im happy for them but please stop comparing gay rights to civil rights its not the same you can hide being gay can't hide the color of your skin just saying enjoy this moment…it should be left up to the states (Perez!) like Obama has said! anyhoo glad NY has seen the light!

  38. 38

    Government needs to get the hell out of marriage. Period.

    Re: white_is_ugly – it's actually pretty unfortunate that you were raised to be such a closed-minded person. I feel bad for you, as your parents clearly raised a moron. If ever you need to talk about your unfortunate situation, or need a shoulder to cry on … feel free to hit me up. Sincerely, a concerned GAY, educated, open-minded, amazing individual. PS: YAY NEW YORK! this is unreal.

  40. 40

    All states surrounding NY better get ready for huge gay dollar decline, the gays are leaving you.

  43. 43

    Re: white_is_ugly – your so against gays, then why is your gay ass on a gay bloggers site?

  44. 44

    But what exactly does this mean??? Is it legal for the rest of the country??

  45. 45

    Re: white_is_ugly – STFU dumbass..Its clear u are on tha Down Lo…Prolly a big bottom slut

    Good on you NY. Duh, it's obvious that equality means equality and, once again, the smarter states are leading the way.

    Re: white_is_ugly – Sweetheart if you tried to beat one of us… there will be so many of us around that even if you tried you wouldn't succeed.

  49. 49

    Re: lorraine84 – Because it really affects your life if a loving couple of the same sex get married. You're not "traditional", Lorraine, you're closed-minded and ill-informed.

  50. 50

    Re: oxceranoid – Thats priceless that you say something that dumb. The way society is now, if they see someone getting jumped instead of helping, calling the police..they will record it while thinking about how many hits it will get on youtube. Or if someone started seizing, dumbasses of this generation would think they are tweaking and not know wtf to do.

    this is the start of a new direction I love it. I always knew New York was the cutting edge to new ideas in USA.

    YES! what great news to wake to. this is just the beginning. love equality for all.

  54. 54

    Re: Oh Resist Her – Mine isn't legal either, apparently. Not a single mention of God in the entire ceremony! Why are people so insistent that marriage is about God, when marriage is a legal institution, not a religious one!?!?

  55. 55


  56. 56

    If gay marriage is what it takes so we don't have to hear this "eqality for all" shit anymore..Let 'em have it. Marriage doesn't mean anything to people anymore anyway, so I don't know what the fight is about. Have all the marriage you want gays..you are still not equal.

  57. 57

    I"m thankful I live in TEXAS!!!

  58. 58

    I dont understand how anyone could be offended if 2 men or 2 women find happiness and love within each other. Who the fuck are you to force someone into loving another of the opposite sex? How can you live with so much hate in your blood all the time? Cheer up people! Gay is not a perversion or a choice and if you cant handle that, have a conversation with a few gay people and you will what you've been missing. Stop hiding behind your close minded, in fact; RACIST hate… then you will have grown up.

    Hey it's the kid toucher's death day!
    APOLOGIZE PEREZ! Here is your original post, cowardly edited after MJ DIED!
    Here's what perez really felt when he heard the news:
    We knew something like this would happen!!
    Michael Jackson was taken by ambulance from his Holmby Hills home to a nearby Los Angeles hospital on Thursday afternoon!! Supposedly, the singer went into cardiac arrest and the paramedics had to administer CPR!!!
    His mother is even on the way to visit him!!!… Read More
    We are dubious!!
    Jacko pulled a similar stunt when he was getting ready for his big HBO special in '95 when he "collapsed" at rehearsal! He was dragging his heels on that just like his upcoming 50 date London residency at the 02 Arena, of which he already postponed the first few dates!!! Either he's lying or making himself sick, but we're curious to see if he's able to go on!!! Get your money back, ticket holders!!!!

    Okay so I guess that means its time to head to NY to marry a goat and duck and stuffed buffalo, I mean after all, Equality for ALL right liberal/Gays?

  63. 63

    NY and CA need to just break away from the rest of the country (and fall into the ocean). The majority of Americans DO NOT believe in gay marriage.

    Re: NookiesWA – When a person hates gays with a passion they tend to be gay themselves. I'm straight but I don't mind gays because to each their own. Life is short and to fill it with hate is a waste of my time. You must have some inner demons you have to work out of. Maybe your ashamed of your gay feelings and have suppressed them for so long. You then snap back at gay people because you see they are living a happy life but you choose not to because you fear judgment of others. Please see someone to work this out and begin living a happy life. You'll be glad you did!

  68. 68

    let's hope this starts a chain reaction! equal rights for ALL!

    Re: white_is_ugly – Why are you watching then?

  71. 71

    I don't care that gays can get married, But can we please stop with the "if you don't like gays you are probably gay yourself" bullshit. By that rational thinking, alll kkk members wish they were black. Some people just think gay love is disgusting. Saying that someone is secretly gay for opposing gay marriage is incredibly immature and ignorant.

    Re: NookiesWA – The GAY community would not stand there and do nothing! We would jump right in!

    lol so funny. no matter how hard gays try to pretend they are equal they are just not. its really a shame that they are so delusional. its equally funny how they all want to rush out and get married and be like the traditional mainstream couples. cant wait until the first man/man woman/woman couple produces a natural born child. now then they will be equal

  75. 75

    oh, I really think this law is going to be struck down, just like CA. Cuomo put a RIDER ON THE LAW TO GET REP. TO VOTE for this Bill/Law then worked on them. The rider-no Church or other place of worship has to marry any gay couple. Also, no place such as the Knights of Columbus, Masonic Hall, etc. has to rent out their halls for receptions for gay couples. The legality of this rider seems suspect, but CUOMO says it will be upheld. I see it being sued in court, I see protests in front of Catholic Churches, Mormon Tabernacles (esp. the one gays like protesting in front of in NYC) and any other CHURCH that refuses to marry them. AND KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS. It will be nulled, the rider, then the law, because the RIDER IS WHY THE VOTE WENT THROUGH, buying the vote. and it will probably go to a public vote, like CA, and the result? probably the same, NYC is liberal, not the rest of NY

  76. 76

    Re: gajamm – "Typical Christian"… I tell u morons like u are so one sided, u can't respect the opinion's of others but yet want your opinion respected. I don't agree with same sex marriage. I believe marriage is btwn a man and a woman. That is my opinion. I do not hate gays, not in the least. Now i'm sure your pompous self will call me a homophobe - that seems to be the only response from you one-sided opinionators. And back to that "typical Christian" comment, to that I say typical heterophobe commentators. Do that with what you will.

  77. 77

    What I don't like, really hate about this, is the timing of this. Cuomo made this the MOST IMP. THING, THE FIRST THING HE HAD TO DO. Our employment rate is skyhigh. Our homeless rate is skyhight. We have high foreclosures. (Cuomo was head of HUD under Clinton, thank him for starting this). Banks, Wallstreet, most of their CEOs and underlings are still getting millions in bonuses DESPITE taking BAILOUTS and most not paying them back (Cuomo was our GREAT ATTORNEY GEN. right before this). I am not saying we should not have approach Gay Marriage again, (Patterson tried to SHOVE IT THROUGH right before leaving office, and THAT was the problem) But, WHY RIGHT NOW, IMMEDIATELY and not the other problems? He is doing this to pad his RESUME for a higher run. I don't think it even matters to him if it is struck down because the Rider is deemed invalid, or higher courts null the law and bring it to the people. HE JUST WANTS THIS ON HIS RESUME. HE IS A PROFESSIONAL POLITICIAN FROM BIRTH. He does not give a damn about the people, just his ambitions. So don't cheer yet, it might be short lived. This was decided by 62 people, a bunch LEANED ON. It should have been done with time, with everyone educated and they should have felt comfortable, not defeated.

  78. 78

    Divorce for all…they did it for the lawyers.

    Good for them. Now they got no excuse to fuck around like gay rabbits.

    Re: Shaun – yes because what the world really needs is more inbred assholes such as yourself to help us find the path of righteousness

  81. 81

    If you don't like it..to damn bad LOL!! I'm straight however I see no problem with gays..they don't hurt anyone and it wont hurt anyone if they get married..all you idiots who have a problem with it need to get over overyouselves and your holy roller shit..religion is a choice/an opinon not everyone believes gays are wrong in the eyes of god. Grow up and bitch about something worth complaining about like the economy or serial killers.

  83. 83

    I've never been passionately in favour of gay marriage, I mean the very definition of marriage is :"The formal union of a man and a woman, typically recognized by law, by which they become husband and wife"….But then in this day and age you have to be open minded, I don't see any real reason why gays shouldn't be allowed to marry, I'm sure they're capable of feeling love just as heterosexual couples are. If 2 gay people get married it's not going to affect my life in the slightest but it could affect their lives in a fantastic way and they deserve to be happy just like any straight person. Before we stop gay people marrying let's stop people marrying for money, for visas or help stop forced, arranged marriages.

  84. 84

    Re: MajorTom – Marry a goat? Is that the best you can come up with, you fucking moron? Yes, I called you a fucking moron, because only fucking morons make statements about gay marriage being equivalent to bestiality.

  85. 85

    If you think "equality" is a bad thing you'd better do some serious introspection. Hate is a curable disease. Yay, NY!

  86. 86

    Re: MajorTom – Uh….. Equal marraige rights for CONSENTING ADULTS. I don't think your duck WOULD consent to marry you, even if it COULD.

    Re: MajorTom – The SCOTUS has stated marriage to be a right in Loving v Virginia and, suprise surprise, they were judicating a case involving humans.

  91. 91

    I'm so happy about it !!! Now let's make it happen in California!!!

  92. 92

    Re: Shelah – Please speak for yourself, and do not act as if you represent Texans. I for one am very proud to be a Texan, and I look forward to our state making the same move toward equality.
    Re: Toy4Paco – If you are a supporter of this equality movement, do not refer to an entire state of people as 'redneck idiots'. You take a giant step backward for this country with statements such as that one.

    Re: NookiesWA – You're such a closet case.

  95. 95

    I don't see what the big deal is. Same sex marriage has been legal in Canada for years and nobody thinks twice about it. I'm shocked at how homophobic and close minded American's are!

  96. 96

    All you Motherfuckers are just jealous! NYC is the best city in the world! Haters

  97. 97

    i wish i knew why people see this as some movement. straight people choose not to be married and live forever with their others. all gay people do is bitch and moan about wanting to be married, yet those who will marry will be divorced within a year…and please show me where 2 men get married and biologically produce a child. i want to see the man carry and give birth to the child…THAT IS WHAT MARRIAGE IS ABOUT!!!

  98. 98

    they say new york is "big apple" …now since this thing is happening there, are they gonna change it as "BIG GAYPPLE"?

  99. 99

    Re: NookiesWA – You're are disgusting and hateful human being. Why are you even on a website run by a flaming homosexual? To spread hate? Your God will surely judge you more harshly than the people you hate.

  100. 100

    Does anyone else notice how a lot of people who are homophobic and anti-gay are very bad at articulating themselves and speak like angry 12 year olds? Maybe that says something about their state of mind.
