Gay marriage has been legalized in New York and many gay couples are dressed up and ready to finally go down the aisle and make their love legal! This is something that is a very big deal and a great triumph for equality.
Seattle PI reports that there are of course many protestors:
"Thousands of protesters rallied in several cities around the state, a signal that the long fight for recognition may not be over just yet.
State Sen. Ruben Diaz, a minister who was the sole Democrat to vote against gay marriage when the Legislature approved it, told a crowd near the United Nations that he and other opponents would try to get Sunday's marriages annulled, saying judges broke the law by waiving the 24-hour waiting period without a good reason.
"We're going to show them next week that everything they did today was illegal," he said, speaking in Spanish. "Today we start the battle! Today we start the war!""
This is a great thing that is happening, and hopefully it doesn't get over turned. Hopefully people can just allow the couples to be happy and focus on other things instead of trying to keep their love from being legal.
