Crowd chanting "Gay Straight Black White, Marriage is a Civil Right" and "What do we want? Marriage Equality. When do we want it? Now." Recorded during the NYC Lighting the Way to Equality candle light vigil organized by the Marriage Equality New York, a non-profit all-inclusive organization whose mission is to educate the public by raising awareness of the important right of all persons to enter into legally recognized gender neutral civil marriage with all the benefits and responsibilities that entails.
NYC - Lighting the Way to Equality
Light the way to Equality!: a pre-session vigil--Monday, November 9, 6:00pm (after sunset)
Union Square Park on 14th Street (south side of park)
Bring pro-marriage signs, a candle (a flashlight or non-flame candle works just as good) as we come together to send a unified message to our NY Senate on the eve of the session that can decide marriage equality.
Elected officials and community leaders have been invited to speak and the press has been invited to cover this statewide movement. We have 11 locations, so far, participating across NYS.
