Marriage Equality Rally on Sunday

Please come out and support Marriage Equality by attending this peaceful rally of love on sunday the 17th from 5-7 in NYC at 45th and 6th.

The National Organization of Marriage (the anti-gay organization that created the "Gathering Storm" video and now have Miss CA as their spokesperson) and Senator Diaz from the Bronx will be protesting at Governor Paterson's Manhattan office on Sunday. They are protesting him for presenting the marriage equality bill and being such a strong supporter of civil rights.

As a response to their protest there will be a Marriage Equality Rally in Midtown to show the Governor and the State of New York, that we support equality for all. Broadway Cares, HRC, Civil Rights Front, and Empire State Pride Agenda have been working together to ensure that our response to their hate is LOVE.

The NY State assembly is expected to pass Marriage Equality THIS WEEK! It then moves on to the Senate where we only need to convince about eight more senators to vote for the bill and Gov. Paterson will sign it into law. We are so close and have to do everything we can to make sure New York joins the momentum that is sweeping the nation. We have just six weeks to get the people to call their senators and make their voices heard before the session ends and the bill dies.
