Homos + Famous Persons Take Over NYC Streets Demanding Right to Throw Bouquet

There sure were a lot of homos gathered in New York City yesterday! Oh, and famous homo-loving celebrities! With same-sex marriage legislation passed by the New York State Assembly and OK’d by Gov. David Paterson, it’s just a matter of getting the Senate to come around. Which left Broadway Impact, the Empire State Pride Agenda, and Marriage Equality New York with only one thing to do: Throw a massive equality party in Midtown!

And what better way to attract common folk than highlight your A-list roster? Broadway stud Cheyenne Jackson, newly engaged lesbian Cynthia Nixon (plus her Sex and the City co-star and alleged budding porn actress Kristen Davis, new-ish-ly open gay David Hyde Pierce, military persona non grata First Lt. Dan Choi, and mayor of the queers Michael Bloomberg were all there for handshaking opportunities. Even Gov. Paterson made a last-minute surprise appearance!

More interesting, however, was who wasn’t in the audience. Of course openly bigoted Sen. Ruben Diaz couldn’t be there (he was busy with his own take-back-marriage rally). And neither could Donald Trump nor Rudy Giuliani, who were preoccupied with promoting their own brand of inequality.
