    Ruben Diaz, Jr."After considerable deliberation and introspection, I support marriage equality. My decision, which comes after years of thought and reflection on the issue, is informed by the experiences I have had with close friends, family and loved ones. For example, my chief-of-staff, Paul Del Duca, has for decades worked to help the people of this City. He has helped people find housing and jobs, he has dedicated his professional life to assisting those in need. Why, then, should he and his partner Damion—whose wedding I stood witness to—be denied the same rights of any other loving and committed couple? Moreover, why should my niece, Erica Diaz, be denied the ability to get married when her time comes?"

    A reminder on "Erica," a former Naval Officer in a long-term lesbian relationship who, while counter-protesting, was invited by and joined her grandfather Ruben Sr. on stage before a 2011 anti-gay rally in NYC:

    Gothamist(Diaz Sr,): “This is my granddaughter. I love her. I love her. I love her. I respect her decisions. She does what she wants. If you think that in our family, there is hatred, and there is no love, you are wrong. Because I love my granddaughter.” Of course, if his granddaughter married another woman, Diaz said, "I would not go to the wedding."

    "She's my daughter too, Evelyn".
