History in the making: New York legalises gay marriage

It's a place that gave birth to the modern gay rights movement. Stonewall. It's therefore a bit surprising it took so long for marriage equality to become a reality in New York. It seemed so natural and routine for the soul of New York that this should have been the case for ages. Still, with delays, it's truly a history in the making. It's impossible to underestimate the importance and influence of New York worldwide. It's not simply a victory for local activists. It's a victory for all of us, for anyone who cares about human rights. Well done, New York !! Mon amour.

Yes, was so f*cking amazing to wake up with the news that New York finally legalised gay marriage.

This picture of the Empire State building in New York covered in rainbow went viral today.

It has always been cool to be a New Yorker. It's now even double-triple cool...

It's pretty darn exciting. Love what they did with the Empire State Bldg.

It feels great to know that one more barrier has been shattered for LGBT people in one part of the world! I can't wait for the day where gay marriage will be accepted all around the world.
