NY Senator Diane Savino on Equality

This is a clip of NY Senator Diane Savino speaking in the New York Senate yesterday in support of a motion to legalise gay marriage in the State of New York (sadly, injustice prevailed and the motion was shot down). Senator Savino gives one of the most eloquent speeches I have ever had the privilege of hearing.

“We in government don’t determine the quality or the validity of people’s relationships. If we did we would not issue three quarters of the marriage licenses we do.”
