Marriage Equality USA Presents "History In The Making"



What did it take to achieve marriage equality in New York? Follow unintentional archivist Fred Anguera as he documents Marriage Equality New York (est. 1996) - the nation's oldest grassroots marriage equality organization on its journey to legalizing love (see movie trailer). From rallies and marches, through a cross-country tour of New York, to the signing of the 2011 Marriage Equality Act, this all-volunteer grassroots organization was a driving force for the cause in the streets and with state politicians.

History in the Making highlights many of the organization and movement activists including Edie Windsor, Cathy Marino-Thomas, Ron Zacchi, as well as celebrities like Margaret Cho and Cynthia Nixon and local politicians like Assemblyman Danny O'Donnell, Senator Thomas Duane, Speaker Christine Quinn, and Mayor Michael Bloomberg.


Panelists:
  • Christine Quinn (former President, NYC City Council)
  • Cathy Marino-Thomas (former President, MENY / MEUSA)
  • Fred Anguera (Director)
  • Brian Silva (Executive Director, MEUSA)
History in The Making will be on Wednesday, October 29, 2014 from 5:30pm - 8:30pm at New York Life, 51 Madison Ave., New York, NY. For more information contact Brian Silva at bsilva@marriageequality.org or call 347.913.6369. For tickets clicks here
