Mayor Michael Bloomberg will officiate at one of the city’s first same-gender marriages – the union of two top staffers in his administration.
Bloomberg spokesman Marc LaVorgna said the mayor plans to preside over the wedding his chief policy adviser, and Department of Consumer Affairs Commissioner.
The “nuptials” (sic) are planned for July 24. That is when the new state law legalizing same-gender marriage goes into effect.
Officials have said they expect a rush of interest on that Sunday, and New York City clerks’ offices are taking the unusual step of opening on a day when government offices normally are closed.
