NYC becomes 6th state to allow Same-Sex Marriage

THE LGBT COMMUNITY HAS A RIGHT TO CELEBRATE. In a 33-29 vote, the bill for gay marriage's legalization was passed last night. Court Challenges are certain, but the state of New York makes it difficult for voters to repeal laws at the ballot box. According to the Huffington Post "Republican demands for stronger legal protections for religious groups that fear they will be hit with discrimination lawsuits if they refuse to allow their facilities to be used for gay weddings." Although there may be many challenges that lie ahead, the LGBT Community is making history!
