New York Allows Same-Sex Marriage, Becoming Largest State to Pass Law

State lawmakers voted late this evening to legalize same-sex marriage, making New York the largest state where gay and lesbian couples will be able to wed and giving the national gay-rights movement new momentum from the state where it was born. Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo signed the bill into law.

The marriage bill, whose fate was uncertain until moments before the vote, was approved, 33 to 29, in a packed but hushed Senate chamber.

Senate approval was the final hurdle for the same-sex marriage legislation, which was approved last week by the Assembly. Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo signed the measure at 11:55 p.m., and the law will go into effect in 30 days, meaning that same-sex couples could begin marrying in New York by late July.

New York City celebrated.

A huge precedent has been set and I’m sure quite a few politicians’ knickers are in a knot about the signing of the equal marriage legislation.
