They’ve been together for 23 years and were the first couple in New York City to wed under the state’s new law allowing same-sex marriage Sunday, July 23, 2011.
Phyllis Siegel, 77, and Connie Kopelov, 85, were married in Lower Manhattan at 9:02 a.m. Sunday in a ceremony witnessed by City Council Speaker Christine Quinn and officiated by City Clerk Michael McSweeny. Quinn is the first openly gay speaker of the New York City Council.
Now, we just need to get the other 44 states to allow same sex marriage and join the rest of the nation.
