With SCOTUS set to hear marriage cases, Sen. Heidi Heitkamp says she's #GotYourBack

North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitkamp is telling LGBT people in her state and beyond that she's #GotYourBack. On the eve of marriage equality arguments at the U.S. Supreme Court, Heitkamp took to social media to post a photo of herself showing support for LGBT residents of her state.

Heitkamp is no stranger to supporting the LGBT community. Earlier this month, she told North Dakota state lawmakers, “I think we can’t be a state that is seen to discriminate.” Heitkamp is a marriage equality supporter, and a co-sponsor of the federal Employment Non-Discrimination Amendment.

GLAAD's #GotYourBack campaign empowers allies and LGBT people to show their support for the LGBT community. One way you can show your support is by taking a #GotYourBack photo. Take a photo of yourself holding a sign of support (you can download a #GotYourBack sign here), or holding a photo of an LGBT person that you love and cherish.
