With this law, I thee wed …

Yesterday, on July 24, 2011, the state of New York passed the Marriage Equality Act, enabling gay men and women from Staten Island to the Adirondacks to legally wed their partners.
This is in their honour: Degas’ Dancers in Pink.
To all my friends in the Big Apple, you guys rock.
