Governor Gregoire’s Moving Speech for Marriage Equality

Today, Governor Gregoire made a moving speech in support of marriage equality in Washington State.

I was not able to be there in person at the press conference, but I did watch the video later and felt the genuine support she expressed.

I agree with Governor Gregoire that marriage equality is a civil rights issue and that it really is time for marriage equality in Washington State.
