New York Governor¬†Andrew Cuomo became a NYC superhero last weekend when he got marriage equality legislation passed. Gays and straights alike rejoiced and Facebook and Twitter went bonkers with pro-Cuomo tweets and FB status updates. Even the Empire State Building glowed in a rainbow of colors at midnight. And one of The AVENUEinsider’s favorite illustrators¬†aleXsandro Palombo (of the hilarious blog Humor Chic)¬†did this drawing for us of Cuomo in all his heroic glory.


The ruggedly handsome Governor is on a roll, stoking speculation that he will run for President in 2016.


Stay tuned.
