New York, Then America
Congrats on New York for legalizing same-gender marriage and while this is a victory, New York is only a battle. When civil rights were given to blacks, it was a national thing and that was why it was a huge victory. While certain types of segregation ended in many areas of the country prior to the sixties, it wasn't a full victory until it was ended in parts of the south. Gays can marry in a few blue states, but it should be legal everywhere. And gays and lesbians shouldn't stop their fight until they can legally marry in the middle of Utah, Alabama, or Oklahoma without fear of retaliation. When that day comes, gays and lesbians will have won the war.
