Amber Weiss, physician assistant, and Sharon Papo, social worker, with Skyler, 11-month-old
So you two were already married before today?
Sharon: We got married on June 17, 2008, the first day we could be legally wed in San Francisco. We came to New York to celebrate liberty and justice.
And how did you celebrate?
We passed out eight-inch Statue of Liberties that had rainbow sashes, rainbow lollipops, and little cards that said “Congratulations … Thank you for being love warriors … ”
What was the response?
At first people thought we were trying to sell them something. But I think they were very touched that we were just here to celebrate. I was surprised there weren’t more Statue of Liberties walking around. It felt like an important part of all this.
