On Sunday New York became the sixth state in the US to allow gay marriages.

More than 800 couples got married in the state that day alone.

The Guardian has a gallery of eight pictures showing the newlyweds. One couple has been together 51 years!

BuzzFeed has a set of 60 images.

And the first ever same-sex marriage on Broadway took place today, a triple-bill on the set of the musical “Hair”. Check out this video, where the happy couples also get serenaded by the cast and audience at the musical! (Disclosure: I scripted, voiced, and edited this video.)

The other five states that have passed laws allowing same-sex marriages are: Massachusetts (2004), Connecticut (2008), Iowa (2009), Vermont (2009), and New Hampshire (2010).

      A new study shows that gay men in
      Massachusetts visited a health care clinic 13% less often after same-sex
      marriage was legalized in the state in 2003. The result suggests “that
      marriage equality may produce broad public health benefits by reducing
      the occurrence of stress-related health conditions,” says an expert
      behind the study.

      The
      12-month study of more than 1,200 patients at a gay health care clinic
      also found that their health costs dropped by 14%. Both single and
      attached gay men benefited from the same-sex marriage law. The study
      backs up earlier research that showed that banning gay marriage had a
      negative effect the health of homosexuals. Six states have legalized gay
      nuptials so far: Iowa, New York, Connecticut, New Hampshire, and
      Vermont, in addition to Massachusetts. Washington, DC, allows for it,
      too.
