Miss New York Claire Buffie is just the latest NY celeb to join the Human Rights Campaign’s effort “New Yorkers for Marriage Equality.” Notable names including Sen. Chuck Schumer, former Mayor Ed Koch, Russell Simmons, and Joan Rivers have all appeared in videos for the campaign in support of same-sex marriage. Republicans in New York’s State Senate voted unanimously against legalizing same-sex marriage in 2009. Recently, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said he would try to make marriage equality the law before the state legislature breaks in June.
