Marriage Equality in NY is less of a "political hot button" and more of a law.
There does come a time when an issue stops being political. 10% of Americans still oppose interracial marriage, but there was a time when we stopped viewing them as people who are just on the other side of a political conservation.
The conservation in the case of Marriage Equality is still ongoing; but in the context of New York and a fragrance celebrating New York, it is not.
(I still have no interest in it, but I think you cannot talk about an "I Love NY" fragrance without understanding NY.)
Another interesting thing, which is uniquely NY, is that most of the money that bankrolled the legislation came from Republicans.
