NY: Bronx Supports Marriage Equality In Spite of Senator Diaz

Friday, June 3rd, 2011

Senator Ruben DiazAdvocates in the Bronx plan to hold a press conference Friday afternoon to show that the majority of residents support marriage equality despite the vocal opposition of state senator Ruben Diaz Sr., who represents the borough.

Last month the Puerto Rican state senator and Pentecostal minister hosted a march and rally against marriage equality in the South Bronx that drew 2,500 participants and speakers including Brian Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage.

While Albany insiders downplay the Democrat’s ability to influence a pending marriage vote in the Republican-controlled Senate, the volume of his homophobic comments has attracted outsize attention from some activists and generated the most visible, if controversial, political theater around the issue. Diaz is the subject of a gay erotica contest at a Brooklyn bar next week, and activists carried a cardboard cutout of him dressed in drag to help raise money at AIDS Walk, held in Manhattan on the same day as his event, May 15.
