PENNSYLVANIA: Activist Couples Marry Across Bridge To New Jersey

Yesterday three gay couples from Pennsylvania literally married across a bridge to New Jersey. Nice symbolism.
"Just this week, Illinois passed marriage equality, Hawaii is on the verge of passing marriage equality, New Jersey recently passed marriage equality and we're hoping for a win here in Pennsylvania," said Adrian Shanker, president of Equality Pennsylvania. "You can see it from right here, you can see New Jersey," Shanker told the group during the rally. After several people spoke, the group made the short walk across the bridge to "bridge the gap" so three same-sex couples could get legally married in New Jersey. "When they come back across that bridge they will have access to numerous federal benefits and no state benefits here in Pennsylvania and that's wrong, and that's why we're marching and fighting today," said Shanker.
