    - katie, CNN iReport producer

    Following one of the most dramatic and emotional discourses thus far in the gay marriage debate, the New York Senate voted 24 to 38 today, December 2, 2009, to reject a bill guaranteeing equal marriage rights to same-sex couples and New Yorkers are fighting back. There was a spirited, yet peaceful protest this evening near the TKTS booth in Times Square in which hundreds of people braved the cold and pouring rain to be heard amid a very strong police presence.
