May the Force of Marriage Equality Be With You
April 18, 2011 by Adrian Matanza, Regional Field Director
This past weekend, Stony Brook University hosted I-CON, the northeast's largest convention of science fiction. HRC Long Island organizer Lisa Votino-Tarrant, a handful of volunteers and I (in monkey costume) were at the school among many other fictional characters including the the Link, Batman, and even Sailor Moon. Long Islanders (in costume) are speaking up! Over the three-day event, we collected over 650 postcards to send to our New York state senators urging them to support Marriage Equality. Even the Dark Lord and Chewbacca were in agreement; every New Yorker should have the freedom to marry the person they love.
Please note: the characters signed with their real names and addresses.
