Marriage Equality

Here in New York we’re all huddled together and joining forces to fight for equal rights. Did you know that 5 States and the District of Columbia have marriage equality, and New York does not?

The Standard, New York is rallying tomorrow night with a fundraiser event hosted by Cornelia Guest & André Balazs. The fundraiser is aimed at helping make marriage equality a reality for all New Yorkers. Others attending will be Chris Meloni, Josh Kilmer-Purcell & Dr. Brent Ridge, Daphne Rubin-Vega, Julianne Moore & Bart Freundlich, David Chang, Kenneth Cole, Ethan Hawke & Ryan Shawhughes, Kevin Bacon & Kyra Sedgwick, Fran Drescher, Mark & Sunrise Ruffalo, Jeanne Moutoussamy-Ashe, Moby, Joan Rivers, Tom Colicchio, Whoopi Goldberg, and John Slattery.

The event is for the HRC Campaign for New York Marriage (in the room formerly known as the Boom Boom Room).

What can you do? Get Out the Vote 2010. This year’s midterm elections are tremendously important for equality. An energized right-wing base is poised to halt the progress we’ve made. No matter what state you live in, it’s important for you to vote early or head to the polls on November 2.

Consider what’s at stake. There’s tons of ways to get involved, go to to take the next step.
