It's just another pre-Valentine's Day marriage protest in New York City:

Dsc 0442-1
Dsc 0881-1
Dsc 0100-1
Dsc 0684

Jealous, hetero friends?

**Here are some highlights/lowlights, via the organizers @ Queer Rising:

· Alan Bounville, Jake Goodman, Justin Elzie and Gabriel Yuri Bollag chained and pad-locked themselves to the entrance railing, subsequently blocking entry to the marriage bureau.
· A gathering of under 100 same-sex marriage equality proponents for a press conference and rally in the park opposite the bureau.
· The application – and subsequent rejection – of over 20 same-sex couples hoping to obtain a marriage license inside of the bureau.
· The application – and subsequent approval – of a lesbian and gay man, whom according to New York State law may legally marry each other, for a marriage license.
