— Douglas Robinson, one of the first gay men to get married in New York on Sunday.
City officials held a lottery on Thursday for 764 marriage, but when 823 people registered the city decided to allow all of the couples make their marriage official on the first day the law takes effect in New York on Sunday!
This will break the city’s previous record of 621 marriages registered on Valentine’s Day in 2003. Congrats to all the happy couples in New York!!
