More than 1,500 New Yorkers gathered today in Manhattan to mourn the death of a 32 year-old gay man, who was shot down on Friday just blocks away from the historic Stonewall Inn in an apparent act of anti-gay bias.
Sen. Feinstein Featured in New “No on Prop 8″ Ad
The Vote NO on Prop 8 campaign has released a new ad featuring California’s senior United States Senator Dianne Feinstein. In the ad, Feinstein emphasizes her experience working towards eliminating discrimination and calling on voters to reject Proposition 8.
Speaking directly to the camera, she says, “Proposition 8 would be a terrible mistake for California. It changes our Constitution, eliminates fundamental rights and treats people differently under the law.”
Feinstein became the first California woman to serve in the Senate when she was elected in 1992. Re-elected twice, she has served as a powerful advocate, often supporting valuable legislation for the LGBT community.
