George and Farid Want to Marry in New York


Freedom to Marry recently posted this clip of George and Farid, a couple together for ten years who own a restaurant in Brooklyn and are expecting their first child.

They want to marry. New York lawmakers should give them that opportunity.

  1. Andy, I agree, they really should get married in NYC. All the best to this couple!

  3. Ah what a sweet video! I know George and Farid, and they really ARE as cool as they look in the video, really nice guys! Their restaurant, 'Bogota' in Park Slope, is also great and well worth visiting!

  4. Such a nice couple. I hope that they're able to get married in New York. If not they could always come to Canada. We have tons of queer American couples coming here to get married!

  5. Very sweet. Best of luck to them. God DAMN it New Yorkers - let these guys and everyone else who wants to get married, get married! (I should talk - in California we are still fighting for the equal right to marry!)

  6. Bogota is one of my absolute FAVORITE restaurants! Best empanadas in NYC!

  8. Beautiful video. So call Cy Vance's office and ask that the community service requirement be dropped for the 5 LGBT activists arrested in a Marriage Equallity demonstration. They spent the night in jail - that should be enough. By getting arrested for civil rights and spending the night in jail, they've already done community service.
