Pro-Marriage Equality Candidates

June 10, 2009

I’m sure this isn’t a first, but it’s great to see candidates like Jennifer Brunner who are running for national office and not running away from supporting really progressive gay rights positions.  Brunner, who is now Ohio’s Secretary of State, has a piece on Huffington on why she supports marriage equality and why understand the opposition.  Further, she makes the great point that once marriage equality is law, lots of other issues become resolved.  We can legislate each issue individually, or we can do it in one sweeping move.  Bills like the Uniting American Families Act, which deals with immigration issues that international gay couples face, would be unnecessary and would free up the time of legislators to focus on the bigger issues rather than my rights on a piece-meal basis.
