New York Pride

I just wanted to add a personal note to Lovechilde's post on the passage of same-sex marriage legislation in New York. I have the good fortune to be in New York on a visit right now and my wife and I took our kids to the Pride Parade yesterday. The energy and pure joy were really amazing and the ovation that Andrew Cuomo got as he marched by was raucous. I've put in a few pictures I took of the event (not great as I did not have a great spot). It was a really beautiful moment. One of the things that gives me real hope for the future is the fact that my children are utterly baffled by the idea that anyone would care whether two men or two women got married. They just don't get it. Of course neither do I.
