Jewish Borough President of Brooklyn attends Gay Vigil

From Towelroad.
A group of gay activists held a "kiss-out" in the Carroll Gardens section of Brooklyn late yesterday afternoon near the spot where a man was brutally attacked by five men after leaving a gay event at South Brooklyn Pizza last week.Groups of four couples stationed themselves on street corners in the neighborhood and kissed for 20 minutes.

The action was followed a couple hours later by a vigil. Public Advocate Bill de Blasio, NYC Council Speaker Christine Quinn Brooklyn, Borough President Marty Markowitz, Congressmember Nydia Velazquez, Congressmember Yvette Clarke, State Senator Daniel Squadron, Assemblymember Joan Millman, were among those scheduled to attend.
