Today Ricky Martin & Jonathan Knight from New Kids on the Block used GLAAD's free Twibbon application to add an ‘I Love New York' button to their Twitter photo in recognition of marriage equality in NYC:!/ricky_martin/status/94986577775820800,!/JonathanRKnight/status/94988627712552960.

TWEET FROM Ricky Martin (please retweet): Stand with New York. I do. Show your support for #IdoNY at @glaad #NY4M #LGBT.

As part of GLAAD's "Stand with New York. I do." campaign, supporters are encouraged to change their Facebook/Twitter profile pictures as a way of celebrating marriage equality in New York. More info can be found here:

Jill Zarin also ‘Stands with New York' today and retweeted photos from GLAAD:!/Jillzarin/status/95115330699010049.

The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), the nation's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) media advocacy and anti-defamation organization, today joined advocates, allies and fair-minded Americans everywhere in celebrating the first day of marriage equality in New York State. GLAAD's staff is on the ground in New York City, helping couples share their stories with media and bringing positive messages about gay and lesbian couples at the heart of marriage equality to homes across the country.

GLAAD released profiles of couples who will be marrying on July 24 as well as faith leaders who support and advocate for marriage equality: Media interested in interviews should contact contact Justin Ward ( or Seth Adam (

"Today, our nation took a tremendous step forward in the movement toward full equality," said GLAAD's Acting President Mike Thompson. "Everyone should be able to marry the person they love, and as Americans hear stories of loving and committed couples like those we saw in New York today, more and more are supporting marriage equality.

"This historic step shows that marriage equality is an increasingly non-partisan issue," said Herndon Graddick, GLAAD's Senior Director of Programs. "Republicans and Democrats joined the majority of Americans who agree that equal protections under the law for loving and committed couples is the only option in a healthy and just society."

Throughout the campaign and in other states across the country, GLAAD has worked with partner organizations and coalitions including New Yorkers United for Marriage to connect media with newlyweds. GLAAD also works with couples and LGBT-affirming faith leaders and congregations to elevate their inclusive messages.

As part of GLAAD's "Stand with New York. I do." campaign, supporters were encouraged to change their Facebook and Twitter profile pictures as a way of celebrating marriage equality in the Empire State. More information on that campaign can be found here: .

About GLAAD: The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) amplifies the voice of the LGBT community by empowering real people to share their stories, holding the media accountable for the words and images they present, and helping grassroots organizations communicate effectively. By ensuring that the stories of LGBT people are heard through the media, GLAAD promotes understanding, increases acceptance, and advances equality. For more information, please visit
