Hundreds of advocates of gay marriage met in West Orange today to celebrate the work of Garden State Equality and its beloved founder, Steven Goldstein, who is stepping down after eight years as the group’s leader. The brunch was initially planned in recognition of President Obama’s inauguration, which will be held Monday in Washington. Obama, who took the oath of office in a private ceremony today, is the nation’s first president to support gay marriage. But the event today became much more about Goldstein and the work he’s done in support of that cause in New Jersey. He was lauded by friends and colleagues, as well as top politicians.
