“Luke” - Pride Agenda’s TV ad calling for equal treatment for all New York families

Empire State Pride Agenda
May 21, 2009


Karen Schuster of Rochester, NY has a gay son and three straight children. She wants to know why her son Luke does not have the same rights as her daughter Jessica. In Karens words, If Jessica meets someone and falls in love and wants to get married, she can. But if Luke meets someone and falls in love and wants to get married, he can't. It's not equal treatment. This painful situation is the reality for thousands of families across New York State. We need the New York State Senate to act now and pass the marriage equality bill so that same-sex couples will no longer be treated as second-class citizens. [Link]
