New York Gov. Cuomo Pushes For Gay Marriage


I don’t want to be the governor who lobbies for marriage equality.


“I don’t want to be the governor who fights for marriage equality.


“I want to be the governor who signs the law that makes equality a reality in the state of New York,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo has said.

Cuomo insisted yesterday he will indeed ask lawmakers to vote on marriage equality this session in June.

“We’ll be working very hard to pass it,” said Cuomo during an appearance of Hofstra University, according to the New York Times.


It is not immediately obvious how the legislation would fare markedly better this year, given that the composition of the Senate, which is now controlled by Republicans, has not changed significantly since the last vote.


But gay-rights advocates point to public-opinion polls that show more New Yorkers than ever support the legalization of same-sex marriage.
