I have long believed that love is love. It is not the government’s place to tell you who you can a love. Over time, we have seen the social acceptance increase for the LGBT community. But it is still not enough. We must not stop until the human and civil rights of everyone are recognized, and gaining marriage equality in an era of anti-LGBT law is not enough.

LGBT citizens are American citizens and deserve the same pursuit of life, liberty and happiness without discrimination based on who they are.

We will fight for the inclusion of LGBT Americans to be added to the Civil Rights Act. We know it's a long battle, but that isn't going to deter us from doing what's right.
