Quinn: Look me in the eye and tell me I deserve less

Openly lesbian New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn told the media yesterday, “This is the most thrilling press conference I’ve ever been at.”  She stood with dozens of New York elected officials as Gov. David Patterson announced new legislation to extend marriage rights to same-sex couples.  Her impassioned call for equality was recorded by Andy Towle of  the blog Towleroad.
