AUBURN Marriage equality in New York passed another landmark Monday, as an Auburn Correctional Facility inmate married his boyfriend in the states first same-sex marriage ceremony behind bars.
The inmate, 31-year-old Ronald Cook, married 34-year-old Marc Rodriguez, a former Auburn inmate, in a simple civil ceremony Monday morning.
The two men met in the prison in 2002, Rodriguez said....

I doubt that a man and wife, both criminals, would be allowed to be incarcerated in the same institution so how can they allow these two to be treated any differently?
Bubba like you, Bubba gonna marry you, you gonna be Bubba’s B....
One of them is out now, actually.
Now isn’t this special?
Love blooms in a prison cell.
I think I am going to barf.
That should be the next legal challenge.
Equal rights for incarcerated heterosexuals who just wanna love!
And of course, love, especially gay love, doesn’t distinguish between misdemeanors and felonies, so death row inmates gotta “get theirs”, too.
Will Tom Hanks do “The Rainbow Mile”?
Ah, prison love. Ain’t it grand?
Oh, you can lock us up
And lose the key
But hearts in love
Are always free!
Prisoners of love
Blue skies above
‘Cause we’re still prisoners
We’re still prisoners of love
‘I doubt that a man and wife, both criminals, would be allowed to be incarcerated in the same institution so how can they allow these two to be treated any differently?’
The left view nearly anyone in prison, as an exploited person who are incarcerated due to society failures.
See the list of OWS demands: The want all prisons emptied.
I worked at Auburn Prison from 1980-1983 before transferring to a prison closer to my home. Back then, we were one of a few prisons in the state that allowed weekend conjugal visits for inmates with their legal wives. We thought that was going too far then. I can’t imagine what the staff thinks of this BS going on today. Makes me even more glad I retired in 2003.
your post made me think of the Chambers case...when I lived in Manhattan in the 80s my then girlfriend of several years had taught him at Collegiate (?) prep school
she had said he was very good looking but wacky and it was a shame because his mother had tried so hard for him
Auburn was a pretty serious joint as I recall...old too
in the Feds you cannot have visitation from anyone with a felony on their record...is it different in NY State system?
Moseley is still alive, although I have no idea what prison he is in now. When I worked there, he worked in the administration building as a porter (cleaned floors, emptied garbage, etc.). He had previously been at Attica, and escaped from there while on an outside hospital trip. While he was free, he stole a woman's car, held her hostage in her home, and raped her repeatedly. That same woman would come to visit him at the prison. How he ever got a job working in the admin building was beyond all of us. The bastard should have died a long and painful death many years before.
During my three years at Auburn, DeFeo worked on the garbage crew. They would go around the prison on a truck and pick up the garbage from the housing units, industrial area, and yards, then take it to a central location inside the prison, where it was picked up by a sanitation company.
Try to picture the term 'Blushing Bride' at the ceremony.
Were you at Central New York in Marcy? If so, I transferred to Midstate from Auburn in Dec. of ‘83.
I’ve been past that prison several times. I used to live in a small town near Auburn. I once had an inmate wave at me from the van that was taking them to the prison. We were stopped at a light and I looked over.The guy had his handcuffs on so it was a “half-wave”. LOL. I’ll never forget that.
Any interest in being on my "Ithaca is the City of Evil"/"Upstate NY" ping list?
Ithaca is really that bad?
Have you ever heard of Skaneateles? I’m surprised I remember how to spell it!
