Last week, on June 26, the Supreme Court of the United States took the monumental step of legalizing gay marriage across the nation. Here at Bracha New York as a team that celebrates diversity, equal rights for all, and most importantly, love, the news was met with great joy. We are proud and ecstatic that our many LGBT colleagues, friends, and clients will finally get the recognition and rights they deserve regardless of where they choose to live.
In honor of last week's Pride celebrations and this historic ruling, we put together this interactive map featuring notable landmarks and moments in LGBT history throughout NYC. Enjoy! #lovewins
