NYC Press Conference 5/17 10 am re: Mass Same-Sex Marriage

New York City Councilmember Christine Quinn, Margarita López, and Philip Reed would like to invite you and your friends a press conference on Monday May 17th at 10:00am on the steps of City Hall regarding the legalization of same-sex marriages in Massachusetts. We will be joined by other elected officials and community activists and leaders.

We will celebrate the beginning of Massachusetts issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. This is in accordance with the Supreme Judicial Court ruling last November, which read that only full marriage rights for same-sex couples, not civil unions, conformed to the state's constitution. This is a great victory for promoting families of all kinds, without discrimination, at a time when the Bush Administration would like to write prejudice towards the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community directly into the United States Constitution.

We would like you to join us to on this historic day. Look forward to seeing you there.

If you have any questions, please contact Scott Melvin at (212) 788-9194 or via email at
