Feel the Homomentum!

From the New York Daily News: "New York City clerk's offices will soon conduct civil ceremonies for gay couples."

Cool, eh?
"Sounds like a small step in the right direction," said Joseph Hagelmann, president of the Stonewall Democratic Club in Manhattan. "But we're not going to be happy until we have full marriage equality."

Registering as a same-sex domestic partner is not the same as gay marriage - which the state Senate nixed last year - but it does convey some legal benefits, especially if one partner is a city employee.
Baby steps, I guess.
