Statement on the Supreme Court’s Marriage Equality Decision

Manhattan Borough President Gale A. Brewer issued the following statement on the Supreme Court’s decision announced today in Obergefell v. Hodges:

“Four years ago, New Yorkers and Americans across the country celebrated our state’s seemingly-impossible achievement in enacting marriage equality. Just four years later, we are celebrating a civil rights victory guaranteeing equal rights for same-sex couples across the country.

“Congratulations to the committed LGBT advocates and activists who have worked so hard to achieve this victory. Today our nation has taken another large step toward a more perfect union.”
