So this just happened! Equality for all!! New York State has just become the 6th State in the nation to legalize gay marriage in a 33-to-29 vote!

Funny that a Republican NY Senate was able to pass this bill when a majority Democrat Senate couldn’t 2 years ago.

Check this out:

But Mark Grisanti, a Buffalo Republican who opposed gay marriage when he ran for election last year, said he had studied the issue closely, agonized over his responsibility as a lawmaker, and concluded he could not vote against the bill. Mr. Grisanti voted yes.

“A man can be wiser today than yesterday, but there can be no respect for that man if he has failed to do his duty,” Mr. Grisanti told his colleagues.

There’s much celebration in the streets and on Twitter!
