NY Gay Marriage Vote November 10!

We're getting closer and closer to same-sex marriage in New York... maybe.

Governor David Paterson has called for state legislators to meet in a special session on November 10, during which time senators may vote on a bill to legalize same-sex marriage. Budget issues and other unfinished business (left over from the regular session that was plagued with power struggles) will be addressed at this special session. In October, Paterson announced that he would put the marriage equality bill on the legislative calendar during the special session and predicts that the bill will be passed.

The state assembly has already passed the marriage equality bill (for the second time) this Spring, but we're still a little nervous about the state senate. It's not too late to put the pressure on your senator and urge them to vote for this bill.

For more information on which district you live in and what you can do in your area: Marriage Equality New York. And of course, if you are going to try to go head to head with your senator, some myth-busting tips might help you counter any anti-gay arguments.
