26 NY Senators Support Marriage Equality, But We Need 4 More…

The New York State Senate legislative calendar only has six more days on it, which means that senators will vote on the state’s marriage equality bill sometime within a week. The bill needs 32 votes to pass, but the Republicans hold a 32-30 majority and only 26 senators have publicly supported the bill thus far. Can we find four more Senators willing to back it? Will Senator Ruben Diaz do a holy victory dance if he and his band of bigots win?

New Yorkers for Marriage Equality have posted a call list so you can persuade the remaining non-supportive senators to do the right thing. Even if you don’t live in New York, you can still call and mention your queer NY friends and the tons of LGBTs who would visit if the bill passes.
