New York Gov. David Patterson said April 7 that he supports legalization of same-sex marriage.
Speaking by video link to the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force’s awards dinner in Manhattan, Patterson said: “We will push on and bring full marriage equality to New York state. And when we have done that, we’re going to do more. We’re going to protect young people from bullies. We’re going to protect against the discrimination of people in the transgender community, and we’re going to fight for decent and affordable health care for all citizens in this state.”
“If you will join with me, and if we work hard enough, we can change the face of New York, which will be the catalyst to changing national policy,” he said.
Patterson had planned to attend the dinner but was stuck in Albany dealing with budget problems.
