Gay couples and advocates across America celebrate the approval of the law which permits same sex marriage in NYC.

Governor Cuomo signed the bill last Friday which means the law will be valid starting July 24, 2011. This make New York the sixth and largest state to adopt the law. The decision last Friday was finale of weeks of discussion between Governor Cuomo and the GOP-controlled Senate. Initially it was unclear whether the bill could get enough votes to get into the Senate but when few other politicians joined the advocacy, the hope for the bill to be passed heightens.

The decision was considered by many, including celebrities, as a major achievement for the reason that it is the largest state and its role in the Stonewall riots in Greenwich Village in 1969.

The picture of the Empire state building lighted in rainbow color went viral online last Friday in celebration of the historic vote.

In light of recent tragedies involving youth who have taken their own lives as a result of gender bullying, Facebook has stepped up to go against the wrong doers. Preventing this type of tragedy from happening again is high on their list of priorities.

Facebook has teamed up with MTV, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLADD), and others to form a “Network of Support” for lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender teens. The Network of Support aims to help address the issue that LGBT community faces in the cyber world. Facebook started providing six tips on how LGBT teens can protect themselves online. Included in the list are blocking bullies and reporting harassment, sticking up for others, thinking twice before posting, reaching out whenever overwhelmed, and remembering that they are not alone in their struggle. Facebook already allied with GLADD, MTV’s “A Thin Line Campaign”, Human Rights Campaign, Trevor Project, Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, and Parents, Families, Friends of Lesbians and Gays. The recent tragic event of Tyler Clementi’s suicide pushes Facebook to initiate the Network of Support.
