Morning Sweep

The NY Times reports on the highly unusual and emotional nature of the debate that preceded the gay marriage vote in the Assembly on Tuesday night.

Breaking news: Baptists and Orthodox Jews are not happy with the Assembly's passage of marriage equality.

NY1 produced a piece on one of our favorite people: Congregation Beth Simchat Torah Senior Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum, who will be one of this year's Pride March Grand Marshals.

The New York Observer (via Queerty) features a column on why Pride in NYC is becoming less and less of a big deal: because apparently every day is Pride in New York City! But it is important to note that, while we as New Yorkers may not be forced to live in the closet as we once were, there are still many (many, many, many) reasons to be out on the street demanding equal treatment.

NYC isn't the only place in the state celebrating Pride this weekend: even in Elmira, Pride has become mainstream.

David Mixner is calling June the month for marriage.
