City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, who is campaigning to be the first openly gay mayor, got teary-eyed today at City Hall as she discussed the U.S. Supreme Court's overturning of the Defense of Marriage Act.

"It’s indescribable, the feeling to be more of a citizen of the United States," said Quinn, who married partner Kim Catullo last year after Albany passed same-sex marriage in 2011. "Even when you’re speaker of the City Council, to have something happen that makes you feel more fully an American, and your family fully recognized — it’s indescribable."

After the Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act that prevented the federal government from recognizing gay marriage — and declined to take up a California case and thereby clearing the way for same-sex marriage in that state — elected officials across New York issued their own statements praising the historic decision.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who led the succesful fight to legalize same-sex marriage in New York, called the decision "a major step forward in our efforts to achieve full marriage equality in this nation."
