New Yorkers March To Support Marriage Equality

More than 100 New Yorkers joined U.S. Rep Anthony Weiner [D-Queens], New York City Council Members Rosie Mendez [D-Lower East Side] and John Liu [D-Flushing] and others this past Saturday at Marriage Equality New York's annual marriage equality march over the Brooklyn Bridge. Turnout was certainly less than organizers had expected but Fox 5, New York 1 and other local television stations and newspapers covered the march in light of Gov. Eliot Spitzer's bill to extend marriage to gay and lesbian couples in New York State.
