NYC City Council Speaker Quinn Urges Marriage Equality Vote


Openly gay NYC City Council speaker Christine Quinn was asked at a press conference this morning about the potential for a vote on marriage equality by the State Senate tomorrow.

"It's an incredibly important piece of legislation...If the bill is voted on and passed tomorrow, a week after a referendum passed in Maine that took rights away from the residents of Maine...if seven days after that the New York State Senate stands up and says all New York families are equal, what a message that sends about what we believe as a state."

  1. Dear Ms Quinn,

    Why don't you quit so you can devote your life to kissing Bloomberg's ass.

  2. say what you will, but she was pretty brilliant right there. i'm not very hopeful about tomorrow, but there is always a small part of me that still holds out a little bit of hope, even if it seems against all odds.

  3. I just called a bunch of senators who are swing votes on this issue, and it felt great! Each time I called I was treated with respect and asked for my name to be added to the tally of voters calling on each side.

    Here are some numbers-

    Senator Alesi- 518 455 2015

    Senator McDonald 518 485 2381

    Senator Little 518 455 2811

    We should all make some calls. It takes less than a minute.

  4. That Chris Quinn. Always insists on taking a stand and doing the right thing—so long as it's other politicians who are doing the voting.

    What courage!
