Video: NYC Marriage Equality Protest

Richard Davis at the NYC LGBT Community Center sends us some great video recapping of Saturday’s protest at City Hall. TOP LEFT: The first video is a compilation of several speakers, including former Miss America Kate Shindle, who was fantastic. TOP RIGHT: New York Assemblyman Danny O’Donnell.

BOTTOM LEFT: Openly lesbian actress Heather Matarazzo. BOTTOM RIGHT: The absolute highlight of the day for me was Jeff Campagna’s request that the entire crowd call NYS Senator Ruben Diaz, Sr. (D-Bronx) and demand that he support Sen. Malcolm Smith for Majority Leader. If you only watch one of these clips, watch this one and see Campagna lead thousands of people through entering Diaz’ into their cell phone directories. Diaz is leading the three renegade Democrats who are blocking Smith.
