Governor, Senate President, and House Speaker Join Hands in Support of Marriage Equality

Governor Deval Patrick surprised the crowd in Nurses Hall at the State House yesterday. The Religious Coalition for the Freedom to Marry organized the event to celebrate the three year anniversary of marriage equality.

During the rally, the Governor, the Speaker of the House, and the Senate President made an impromptu appearance. They were greeted with thunderous applaud by marriage equality supporters. Massachusetts's three most powerful people joined hands and raised them high as supporters cheered them on.

Later in the evening, Governor Patrick spoke at an anniversary celebration hosted by MassEquality. The Governor presented a proclamation declaring May 17th Equal Marriage Day in the Commonwealth.
