Did you ever stop to think about how much gay marriage will impact Buffalo? Already we have heard stories involving couples traveling to our city in order to tie the knot. The result is good for our economy, our culture and our collective soul. Here’s an article written by Lyndsey D’Arcangelo and published in Curved Magazine (the issue has just been released) that touts Buffalo as a magical destination for lesbians and their quest to fulfill marriage rights as granted by 2011’s Marriage Equality Act. From cultural wonders to Buffalo’s bounties, proximity to Niagara Falls… even the precursor of Babeville. The article includes where to stay, where to eat, where to party, where to get hitched and even how to get here. Here’s an excerpt:

But instead of climbing up on my soapbox, let me take you on a little tour around my backyard, my city–which is even more attractive as a destination since 2011’s Marriage Equality Act, a New York State law that allows gender-neutral marriages for both same- and opposite-sex couples.
