Pro and Anti Marriage Equality Rallies Organized Same Day in New York

Marriage equality passed as expected yesterday in the New York State Assembly, but it faces a much higher hurdle to clear in the state's senate.

With this in mind, Broadway Impact, Empire State Pride Agenda and Marriage Equality New York are putting on a rally in New York City's Time Square this Sunday, May 17 from 5-7pm.

Hair's Tony-nominee Gavin Creel is hosting the event and will lead his fellow cast members in a performance from the show.

Empire State Pride Agenda has also begun airing the first of a series of ads depicting families and their support for marriage equality.

Hopefully the show of support and the messages behind the ads will get through to the senators, but unlikely will reach the homophobic ears of the stubborn Sen. Ruben Diaz. He plans to hold his own counter protest. Despite the last one he held being a big flop, this one seems to be picking up steam.

So if you're in New York and can make it to the rally, show your numbers!
