Roman Catholic Bishop Blase Cupich of Spokane has called for an honest discussion about gay marriage and Referendum 74, and Charlene Strong was more than happy to take him up on his offer — especially at a Catholic campus.Strong has spoken at 40 universities in less than two years, reliving the flood and her unsuccessful attempts to rescue Fleming. She was influential in getting the state’s domestic partnership bill passed in 2007, but said same-sex couples still aren't treated fairly.

Charlene Strong is one of the leaders in the campaign for Referendum 74, which would create marriage equality for all couples. See GLAAD's work in Washington.
