Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, along with Bravo TV producer and host Andy Cohen, today rallied to legalize gestational surrogacy and ban the gay and trans panic defense before the end of the legislative session on June 19. Both bills were proposed in the Governor's FY 2020 Executive Budget but were not adopted by the legislature, leaving them to be considered outside of the budget during the remainder of the legislative session. On May 30, the Governor launched a campaign and website dedicated to passing the two proposals before the end of session, and LGBTQ advocacy groups are joining the Governor's growing coalition.
