Late Friday night June 25th at 11:55 PM, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the state’s historic marriage equality bill into law. After history making, bipartisan vote, the New York Senate today passed a widely popular marriage equality bill after the most aggressive state legislative campaign in the history of the LGBT rights movement. With Governor Cuomo’s signature of the bill, New York became the sixth state, plus the District of Columbia, where same-sex couples can legally marry. Same-sex couples can begin applying for marriage licenses in 30 days.
