Gays to begin marrying in New York on Sunday

6 years ago99 views Sunday is the first day gay marriage will be legal in New York State. New York City alone has received close to 2,000 same-sex applications. The city originally planned to fill a limited number of Sunday marriage slots through a lottery, but later announced all entrants would be accommodated. Albany plans to one-up New York City. Ten couples will have the chance to be married as early as midnight Sunday by Mayor Jerry Jennings. However, two upstate women claim they will be the very first to be married under the new law. They plan to "take the plunge" near Niagara Falls the same morning. No matter who weds first, one thing is clear: Everyone is a winner when it comes to marriage equality!
