Task Force Responds to Former President Bill Clinton's Support of Marriage Equality

WASHINGTON - July 14 - The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force responds to former President Bill Clinton's support of marriage equality for same-sex couples, as first reported in The Nation.

Statement by Rea Carey, Executive Director National Gay and Lesbian Task Force

"Former President Bill Clinton is stepping solidly into the twenty-first century by supporting marriage equality for same-sex couples. In doing so, he joins many other public figures who have already taken this important stand for fairness and equality. We call upon other elected officials, including President Obama, to do the same to ensure same-sex couples are no longer treated as second-class citizens in this country."


The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force builds the political power of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community from the ground up. We do this by training activists, organizing broad-based campaigns to defeat anti-LGBT referenda and advance pro-LGBT legislation, building the organizational capacity of our movement and generating groundbreaking research through our Policy Institute.
