ESAP-Fall-dinnerLast night in NYC, the Empire State Pride Agenda held its annual fall dinner. Drinks were drunk, shoulders were rubbed, and Annes were Hathawayed, as a whole lot of New York gay collided in one glitzy ballroom.

Your thoughts

Thanks for posting these! I really like the fact that the governor spoke with such confidence that marriage equality will be coming to NY in the next few weeks. His speech makes me feel that he knows something we don't.

I really hope it gets done now, if he doesn't get re-elected it may set marriage equality back in NY for a few years.
