On July 24, 2011 former Lambda Legal plaintiffs Doug Robinson and Michael Elsasser were among the first same-sex couples to legally marry in Manhattan. They were married by Judge Doris Ling-Cohan, who in 2005 ruled in favor of marriage equality in Lambda Legal's lawsuit. Their sons, Zack and Justin, were their best men.
