Buffalo Women Will Be First Same-Sex Couple To Wed In New York State

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Two Buffalo women will be the first same-sex couple to be officially married in New York in a ceremony at 12:01 Sunday morning.

Cheryle Rudd and Kitty Lambert will make history as the first gay couple to be married under the state’s new same-sex law and they say they can’t wait for their Niagara Falls wedding. 

1010 WINS’ Glenn Schuck reports: Couple Excited To Get Married

Cheryle has battled cancer and Kitty has had three heart attacks but they say love has conquered all and they’re dedicated to their future together.

For the ceremony, Niagara Falls will be bathed in the rainbow colors of the equality flag.

In New York City, officials are expanding the city’s same-sex marriage plans for Sunday so all 823 couples who entered the nuptial lottery will have the chance to wed on the first day gay marriage is legal.

    stop using the bible to spread hate…learn to spell or keyboard (your–you are—you’re–) imagine universal love—goodwill–imagine wanting and liking ALL people to be happy, joyous, serene, secure—those that look like you and do not look like you/speak the same language and speak a different language/those that think like you and those who have different thoughts. Win-Win Blessings to ALL

    Sodomm and Gomorrah is coming. These mental sick people need to go for help not marriage. This is disgusting and against the bible.

      Too bad the bible isn’t the law of the land here. Don’t push your ancient religion on the rest of us. Nobody is forcing YOU into a gay marriage.

      1. Ellen says:

        Why not your pushing your lifestyle on the rest of us. Hypocrite are we.

      2. Michael H. says:


        I’m a happily married straight man. I just have enough common sense to know what consists of “pushing ones lifestyle on somebody else”. NOBODY IS FORCING YOU TO GET A GAY MARRIAGE.
