Gay Marriage

New York state senate approves gay marriage

The New York state senate approved a same-sex marriage bill late yesterday, a powerful victory for gay rights advocates that makes New York the most populous US state where gay marriage will be allowed.

Cheers erupted in the galleries when the Republican-controlled senate voted 33-29 on the "Marriage Equality Act," finally approved after weeks of intense wrangling.

A March poll found that a 53 percent majority of Americans are in favour of allowing gay marriage.
