THE BRONX - Some protesters from around The Bronx have labeled Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. a hypocrite when it comes to gay rights.

Diaz honored members of the gay community with a ceremony last night. Protesters say he's previously been vocal about being against same-sex marriage.

The borough president was opposed to gay marriage back when he was an assemblyman, but has said in recent interviews that he supports civil unions.

At the ceremony last night, Diaz said members of the gay community have helped shape the borough.
