Andrew Cuomo Releases Marriage Equality Video
In an apparent response to those who questioned his commitment to marriage equality, Gov. Andrew Cuomo reaffirmed his support for nuptials for gays and lesbians in a video he released on Monday, May 23.
Cuomo also urged New Yorkers to contact their legislators and urge them to support a marriage equality bill.
"This is a matter of fairness and equality," he said.
The governor’s video comes less than a week after "Vogue" Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour publicly endorsed marriage equality in her own video.
State Sen. Diane Savino (D-Staten Island) confirmed to marriage equality supporters in Manhattan last Thursday, May 19, that there are currently 26 pro-marriage equality votes in the state Senate. A marriage equality bill needs 32 votes to pass.
