New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg not only supports the states gay marriage law, he’s actually taking part in the practice, officiating the wedding of two gay employees.
Bloomberg and the men are wasting no time with the marriage as the wedding will occur the same day the law comes into effect.
The mayor will wed chief police adviser (John Feinblatt) and city consumer affairs commissioner (Jonathan Mintz) in a ceremony at Gracie Mansion.
In celebration of the celebration the city clerk’s office will remain open on Sunday, July 24.
Former Mayor Rudy Guiliani took a different stance than Bloomberg, refusing to officiate over the marriage of gay friends and city officials.
