Such an awesome night. After all the writing I have been doing I feel like I should say something but I find I have no words. By a 33-29 vote the New York Senate legalized gay marriage and at 11:55 PM Gov. Cuomo signed the bill into law. It will take effect in thirty days.

People are fond of using the words 'history was made' but tonight in the state of New York history was in fact made. For the first time a Republican controlled legislature legalized gay marriage. Just think about that for a moment. Washington be damned, sometimes anything is possible.

I just don't remember the last time I felt this good that sex wasn't involved. Quite honestly I don't even want to get married but it still feels so damn good. The scenes from the Stonewall Inn, the texts, tweets, emails, and phone calls from friends and family are all combining to make my head spin tonight. I'm sure I'll have more to say once it all sinks in but for now I'm going to enjoy the champagne.

However I do want to take a moment to refute a rumor going around about me. It is so not true I cried in public. It was just allergies.

Awesome night, just a totally fucking awesome.


  1. I'm very glad for you :-)

    On the otherhand, Australia has a very long way to go.

  2. *sniffles* i'm still excited and teary at the thought of it all as i have many friends in NY and got three calls today on engagements being official :)

    just in case you still have those "allergies" *passes over some extra Kleenex*

  3. OMG that is pathetic Shockwave! Seriously I don't think anybody ever suggested anything like that here. I mean don't recognize the marriage at home (which is bad enough but that's how it is) but not even allow you where it's legal? Pathetic doesn't cover it.

  4. aww thanks Mandy, I went through a box or two over the weekend. 'Allergies' were terrible.

    That's so kewl about the calls too. I don't know of any friends yet but I saw a couple of proposals happening. Just makes me smile.
