HRC Responds to Vice President Biden’s Comments

WASHINGTON – Today on NBC's "Meet the Press," Vice President Joe Biden made remarks regarding marriage for gay and lesbian couples.  Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese released the following statement:

"We are encouraged by Vice President Biden's comments, who rightly articulated that loving and committed gay and lesbian couples should be treated equally.  Now is the time for President Obama to speak out for full marriage equality for same-sex couples."


The Human Rights Campaign is America's largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality. By inspiring and engaging all Americans, HRC strives to end discrimination against LGBT citizens and realize a nation that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all.
