Squadron Hosts Gay Marriage Forum Tomorrow

Must Read

Tomorrow State Senator Daniel Squadron, along with many other elected officials,  hosts a public forum on the next steps following the historic approval of gay marriage in New York earlier this year.  The event,  “After ‘I Do’: What’s Next for LGBT New Yorkers?” takes place at 6:30 p.m. at the Borough of Manhattan Community College. U.S. Senator  Senator Kirsten Gillibrand will be among the featured guests.  More details from the senator’s press release:

The federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), as well as the religious exemptions included in the New York marriage equality bill, create a number of obstacles and questions for same-sex couples, even if they’re married under New York law – including social security, health benefits, federal pension benefits, tax returns, interstate travel and relocation, and adoption. The forum will address these issues and bring together representatives from the Empire State Pride Agenda, New York Civil Liberties Union, Lambda Legal, and the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, as well as an official from the federal government.

If you’re interested in attending, RSVP to: squadron@nysenate.gov.
