NYCSubwayGirl chats with Matthew Hamilton during the 2nd annual Hudson, NY Pride. His homemade t-shirt says it all, "I might be straight but I'm not narrow."
His passionate plea to "make it happen" while describing how his mother and her partner of 21 years aren't able to marry. "Brittany Spears can be married in 36 hours, but not my mom."
June 24 10:30pm bill 1545 passed in NY Senate 33-29. To Senator Tom Duane who so eloquently stated in voting for this bill tonight, "there are no villians in this room, only heros," Senator Duane, you are the hero. Uniter of hero's. Thank you. I'm proud to be a New Yorker.
To Matthew Hamilton, your Mom and Christine can now get married. So can I. Congratulations to us all, it feels good to be finally on the right side of history.
