"Our nation was founded upon the principle of equality. It is imperative that we work for equal rights for all in order to make that principle a reality,” said Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich, a longtime ally of the LGBT community. Love isn't gay or straight, tall or short, black or white, it is for everyone.”

Other participants include Massachusetts Reps. William Keating and Niki Tsongas; California Reps. Judy Chu, Barbara Lee, Lynn Woolsey and Jackie Speier; Oregon Rep. Earl Blumenauer, District of Columbia Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton; and Colorado Rep. Jared Polis.
