Mayor Bloomberg speaks for equal marriage rights

Mayor Michael Bloomberg speaks for gay marriage rights in the state of New York.

 Mayor Bloomerg spoke for equal marriage rights at Cooper Union today. Here’s a glimpse:

“In talking to State legislators who do not yet support marriage equality, I can sense that many of them are searching their souls for answers – and they are torn. Like all of us, they have friends and family and colleagues who are gay and lesbian. They know gay and lesbian couples who are deeply in love with each other – many of whom are loving and devoted parents, too.” said Bloomberg. “And they often hear from their own families – especially their children – that this is a civil rights issue. I hope they listen to their kids carefully and make them proud with their foresight and courage.”
