New York!

Posted on Saturday, June 25th, 2011

Dave!I apologize for those who feel offended. I cannot deny a person, a human being, a taxpayer, a worker, the people of my district and across this state, the State of New York, and those people who make this the great state that it is, the same rights that I have with my wife."
—Senator Mark J. Grisanti, New York State District 60 (Republican)

And so, on a weekend where many cities are already celebrating for Pride, New York goes and legalizes marriage equality! Congratulations to all those who fought so hard to make it happen... may this be the first of many victories for freedom and diversity across the nation!

DAVETOON: Lil' Dave Pride Flag

As happy as I am to see the tide of bigotry and hatred turning at long last, a part of me is heartbroken that there are so many who didn't survive to see this moment. Too many kids whose only crime was existing in a world where being different is cause to be persecuted...

In memory of Zach Harrington, Justin Aaberg, Asher Brown, Seth Walsh, Tyler Clementi, and Billy Lucas.

Though it has sadly come too late, this win is as much theirs as it is anybody's.

And now, the future...

    You just made me cry. What a great post. And, I want a Lil Dave Tshirt with today’s graphic. Please re-open your store.

    As usual, perfectly said by you. Amen.

    I was also very excited to see NY join MA, CT, VT, NH, IA and D.C. I wrote a bit on my blog why I believe NY’s historic vote is a game changer for the Same Sex Marriage debate.

    What a touching reminder you included with the pictures of those young kids who unfortunately did not live to see this vote, because it truly does get better.

    You know the perfect way to say anything. Love this post.

    This really is well done, Dave.
