New York’s famous I Love NY campaign is extending the invitation to gay and lesbian couples to generate tourism. From the “Save the Date 7-24-11″ campaign website:
Adventurous souls might appreciate the historical 1835 grist mill setting of St. Johnsville’s Inn by the Mill, with theme rooms, private waterside cottages and hot-tub spas overlooking cascading waterfalls. Or escape to the wide open Adirondacks at the Mirror Lake Inn’s legendary lakeshore, offering special honeymoon packages in the shadow of the Olympic Village.
Clerks’ offices in New York City, Binghamton, Ithaca, and other places are planning to be open on Sunday.
Meanwhile, anti-same sex marriage groups are offering to defend clerks who refuse to issue marriage licenses to same sex couples.
Here are North Country Public Radio, we’re looking for same sex couples in northern New York who are tying the knot this Sunday. If you are one, or know one, or if you’re a clerk issuing (or not issuing) licenses, or a pastor officiating a ceremony, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
