The media and the rest of the world have been enthralled by the nail-biting gay marriage debates happening in New York over the past few weeks. The heated debate came to an end last night when the NY Senate voted 33-29 in favor of legalizing gay marriage. This makes New York the sixth — and largest — state to legalize gay marriage in the union.
