The Ad Council has just come out with a truly American PSA- “Love Has No Labels”. It truly embodies the message that Hillary Clinton is hoping to bring to all Americans. Love and Kindness. It’s not the typical thing discussed in Debates and Rallies. Hillary Clinton has been wonderful speaking on her policies and platform. You can read them on her website www.hillaryclinton.com .
Being Gay and living in Texas my husband and I could finally marry after the ruling on Same Sex Marriage, June 26th 2015. Because my husband had been an Assistant Superintendent in the Texas Independent School District system and paid in to Texas Teacher Retirement I could not be added on his medical plan until we could be legally married in Texas.
So, After being together for 26 years we finally married July 9th 2015. We have our First Anniversary this Saturday. After 26 years we finally are allowed to celebrate our Anniversary like any other married couple in the country.
We are both 60. We have fought the good fight for many many years and I’m so HAPPY for how far we have come. But-We have so much further to go before we have Equal Rights under the U.S. Constitution.
We have dealt with Discrimination our entire lives. Now, When I say we I also want to include all Minorities, Races, Religions, Sexes, LGBTQ,Disabled -Anyone who is different or does not fit into the mold of the Right Wing Republicans.
We raised two daughters who had to deal with the stigma of having 2 gay fathers growing up. It was not easy but they were never embarrassed to be with us. Both are now married. We have 2 grandchildren who will never know anything but love from and for us.
This new PSA by the Ad Council says what we have wanted our whole lives. Just to be accepted for who we are. We are no different. We feel pain, we love, we argue, we cry, we are you. Please watch this PSA and share it with as many people as you can.
PATRIOTISM IS WHEN WE ARE STRONGER TOGETHER! LOVE HAS NO LABELS! LOVE AND COMPASSION NEEDS TO BE ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT DISCUSSIONS AND ISSUES AS WE GO THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF THIS PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION
