Thank You, Governor Paterson

As his final day in office winds to a close for Governor David Paterson, LGBT New Yorkers should offer him our thanks for being the most relentlessly and loudly pro-gay governor in state and arguably, national history.

This is a tremendous loss for the nation, losing what many Americans, including myself, consider to have been the greatest elected official …
