  • 0:02 - 0:19
    [music]
  • 0:19 - 0:20
    I'm married to a movement
  • 0:20 - 0:23
    where I can love across language and borders.
  • 0:23 - 0:24
    I’m married to a movement
  • 0:24 - 0:27
    where I don’t have to choose my safety over my truth.
  • 0:27 - 0:30
    I’m married to a movement that fights for every LGBTQ
  • 0:30 - 0:34
    person to have good food to eat and a safe place to sleep.
  • 0:34 - 0:36
    I am married to a movement
  • 0:36 - 0:39
    that believes queer history is important and necessary.
  • 0:39 - 0:43
    I’m married to a movement where every person of color
  • 0:43 - 0:45
    is not defined by racism.
  • 0:45 - 0:47
    I’m married to a movement that fights for a world
  • 0:47 - 0:51
    where every queer and trans kid goes to a school which
  • 0:51 - 0:53
    treasures them and validates their existence.
  • 0:53 - 0:55
    I’m married to a movement
  • 0:55 - 0:58
    that ties your freedom to my freedom.
  • 0:58 - 1:02
    Gay marriage is important and we still have so much to fight
  • 1:02 - 1:06
    for together as lesbian, gay, bisexual,
  • 1:06 - 1:08
    transgender, and queer people.
  • 1:09 - 1:11
    The reason we have changed this country
  • 1:11 - 1:16
    for LGBTQ people is that as LGBTQ people
  • 1:16 - 1:19
    we have been brave, we have loved each other,
  • 1:19 - 1:22
    and we have worked together on more than one issue.
  • 1:23 - 1:26
    We need each other now. We cannot be whole by ourselves.
  • 1:26 - 1:45
