Last night in Washington, D.C., the area's top chefs, restaurants and mixologists came together to help raise funds to secure marriage equality in Maryland.
Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, who signed marriage equality into law earlier this year, spoke at the event of the importance coming out on November 6 to vote for equality.
“Never before have the people of one state affirmed the dignity of every individual, the importance of protecting under the law equally every child’s home until this upcoming election,” said O’Malley.
Opponents of equality are raising money, blanketing the airwaves with lies about LGBT people, and organizing in conservative churches to stop our progress.
We need fair-minded Americans to step up and support the campaign to convince voters to approve the historic law at the ballot box on November 6th.
