Alex McCord, Gov. Cuomo and the 2011 Gay Pride Parade NYC [135 PHOTOS]

The Village was ablaze with celebration and excitement Sunday as the 42nd Annual Gay Pride Parade took to the streets of mid and lower Manhattan. The parade comes only two days after the New York Senate voted to legalize same-sex marriages in the State of New York. NYC Gov. Andrew Cuomo was the obvious hero of the day, leaving the McCords from Real Housewives NYC as the obvious zeros. Alex and hubby hugged the outer edge of the route in extreme effort to assure camera's like ours caught it.

For the first time, a majority of Americans polled said they support gay marriage.

Why This Straight Girl Is Celebrating The End of Prop 8

Yesterday, two years after Prop 8 - a proposition to ban gay marriage in California - was passed, Federal Judge Vaugh Walker released a 136-page document deeming the proposition unconstitutional. To say it was a big day for the gay and lesbian community in this country is an understatement. In fact, to say it was a big day for this very straight woman is an understatement, too.

Duke It Out: Gay Marriage

I admit, I’ve put off talking about gay marriage here for a while, in part because, well, I went to a liberal arts school in NYC – I have way too many gay friends to really be impartial here. Then last week, the assistant managing editor of the Notre Dame student newspaper resigned during the controversy over an anti-gay joke that appeared in the paper’s comic strip and I realized that this is an issue that still affects us all.

Hitched or Ditched: America Says “I Do” To Hypocrisy

Hitched or Ditched poses the ultimate ultimatum to a rocky couple: Get married in a week or end it for good. Viewers are drawn to the drama and suspense of whether a couple will say “I do” or be publicly humiliated with rejection. This all or nothing, sh*t-or-get-off-the-pot attitude cheapens the idea of marriage.

He Said/She Said: Let’s Talk About (Gay) Sex, Baby

Ok, so a lot of you didn't like us ripping into California yesterday - we get it. And we're sorry for being mean and rude and stereotypical, but we were just. so. angry. This whole Prop 8 thing has us really heated up - we can't sleep, we can't work, and we can't stop drowning our anger and tears in whatever food happens to be in our sights (yes, that includes a near frozen waffle).

Prop 8 and Five Other Reasons California Sucks

California has always been my dream place to live with its warm weather, hot surfer dudes and that laid back, livin the life attitude. But as of today, my view on the seemingly perfect Cali location has truly changed. Thanks to the really messed up California Supreme Court Prop 8 decision banning same sex marriages, I started to realize the truth behind all that sunshine.

Marriage is Like a Country Club…

Marriage isn't a right; it's a privilege. Depending on the time, place, and partner, getting married could be harder than getting into Harvard, if not downright impossible. As recently as fifty years ago, miscegenation laws would have forbid me from marrying my boyfriend (or any man not my race) in certain areas of the United States.

Miss California Campaigns Against Gay Marriage. We Campaign Against Miss California

Dear Carrie Prejean, When Perez Hilton attacked you for your answer to his question about gay marriage, I wanted to defend you. Not because I agree with your stance on gay marriage, but because I wanted to give you credit for being honest and not giving a phony canned answer that you knew would help you win.

Perez Hilton Is a Hypocrite

In case you missed it, there's a whole bunch of controversy surrounding Miss USA first runner-up, Miss California, Carrie Prejean. During the interview portion of Sunday night's competition, she was asked by gossip columnist Perez Hilton, one of the judges, her thoughts on gay marriage. To this, she answered honestly (although rather awkwardly and maybe not politically correctly)...

6 Couples We’d Like to See Married in Vermont

Vermont just became the fourth U.S. state to legalize gay marriage, and that makes me really happy. When California passed the law permitting gay couples to marry last year, tons of couples, like Ellen DeGeneres and Portia DeRossi (cutest couple EVER), tied the knot.
