More than 1,500 New Yorkers gathered today in Manhattan to mourn the death of a 32 year-old gay man, who was shot down on Friday just blocks away from the historic Stonewall Inn in an apparent act of anti-gay bias.
CBS' Mo Rocca Comes Out and Talks About Marriage in NY
CBS News Sunday Morning correspondent Mo Rocca opened up to Ben Harvey and Dave Rubin during an interview for their online radio show The Six Pack. The former The Daily Show with Jon Stewart contributor was having a casual conversation with the radio hosts when he said of coming out later in life, "I'm just more comfortable with myself now. It's taken me until I'm 42 to begin to feel this way."
The three discussed the recent passage of marriage equality in NY. Rocca was on Christopher Street right outside of the Stonewall Inn in New York City on June 24 as the state Senate voted to pass marriage for all in the Empire State. Rocca said, “You gotta be there for a piece of history like that [...] it was very memorable and emotional and a great place to be.” You can listen to the full podcast here.
