More of the gay: Thank you for being a friend

It’s a long way to full LGBT equality, and we will continue to fight. Sometimes, last week in NY, we’re gonna lose. Other times, like yesterday in New Jersey, we’ll at least hold our ground till the next fight.

We know this:

Allies. We need ’em. They are essential.

Like many of you who live in New Jersey, I’ve been following the
progress of the marriage-equality legislation currently being
considered in Trenton. I’ve long believed in and have always spoken out
for the rights of same sex couples and fully agree with Governor
Corzine when he writes that, “The marriage-equality issue should be
recognized for what it truly is — a civil rights issue that must be
approved to assure that every citizen is treated equally under the
law.” I couldn’t agree more with that statement and urge those who
support equal treatment for our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters to
let their voices be heard now.

Thanks to these folks for their grace under fire, and thanks to all y’all too.
