Fuck yeah! Wooo!

With his position still undeclared, Senator Mark J. Grisanti, a Republican from Buffalo who had sought office promising to oppose same-sex marriage, told his colleagues he had agonized for months before concluding he had been wrong.

“I apologize for those who feel offended,” Mr. Grisanti said, adding, “I cannot deny a person, a human being, a taxpayer, a worker, the people of my district and across this state, the State of New York, and those people who make this the great state that it is the same rights that I have with my wife.”

Also, for a more comedic take:

Vaguely related to this as well: Being 'out' at work has been proven to be good for LGBTQ people, both socially and economically:

and being out in general, when around supportive, accepting people, is good all over:

Gee, just think... if people actually started being accepting and supportive of their LGBTQ children and family members, maybe fewer of them would try to kill themselves!

(Interestingly, a caring, supportive environment also helps reduce the risk of suicide in straight people as well, which isn't all that surprising if you think about it, but the LGBTQ community seems to be at statistically greater risk of suicide than many other parts of the population, thanks to the systematic prejudice and hatred they face on a daily basis.)
