Why I am working for same sex marriage


Many transgender people feel it is a vindication of their
prognostication that because Gay and Lesbians are struggling for
marriage equality and there is no concrete evidence of unconditional
commitment by the Human Rights Campaign to support a gender inclusive
ENDA that HRC has no intention to ‘return’ for us.

I work for human rights. I make no distinction as to who will benefit
by my work.

I have so many dear friends who are suffering so. The lives of each
of their family members have been turned upside down since the rights
of the minority which they belong to have been removed by a popular
vote.

Stop and think about who your friends are. Children and adults who by
grace are in loving families that they may have otherwise never known.

Without further definition as to who they are and who the majority is
I am compelled to action. We only have today to be true to ourselves
and friends.

Sounds familiar? We protest loudly with righteous indignation when
our allies “threw us under the bus”. Now it is our opportunity to
raise above anger, above self involvement and jealousy to be the ally
that we wish to have. We can only claim this title if we care enough,
now, today.

Lets Make today our living stonewall. We can make this statement. I
will not leave you behind. I will stand with you and fight for you.
You are my friend.

You are my ally.
