Marriage Equality in Sight! Full Steam Ahead!
As the state legislative session starts winding down this June, it is important that we keep our State Senators accountable and let them know that it is time to pass marriage equality in New York State. The latest poll indicates a 58% support for this step towards equality, and the number only continues to grow. Our local senators hold a large amount of the responsibility for whether or not we are going to stop this blatant discrimination against same-sex couples. So if you haven't called or written a letter to your Senator, now is the time to do so. And if have already it sure doesn't hurt to let them know again that Monroe County wants to end the discrimination against its lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender citizens.
