Senator Kirsten Gillibrand: Join The Fight For Marriage Equality In NY
My partner of almost 15 years and I would like to marry. Our families support us and want this for us as well. My mother would love nothing more than to walk her daughter down the aisle and marry the person she loves.
My fiance and I live in New York. We are planning on getting married September 17th of this year in New York. Right now, we will have to travel to Connecticut at some point before that day, get married in a civil ceremony in a state that is not our own. We love being New Yorkers and would love to get married in our home state and have marriage be the real deal.
My partner and I have lived in Westchester County, NY for 14 years. We are raising a 16 year old son and a 7 year old daughter…we work and live in the area and have been fully accepted and integrated. My children's generation thinks nothing of the make up of our family and sees only a family…isn't it time for the rest of us to do the same!!!!!
Two of the most wonderful loving men I know are getting married in New York State in September—-let's make it legal!
