Smith, Olbermann, Corzine, Schumer and Gillibrand at NY HRC Dinner


New York Senate Majority Leader Malcolm Smith, MSNBC's Keith Olbermann, New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine, and Senator Chuck Schumer all spoke at the Human Rights Campaign's New York dinner over the weekend. Newly-appointed Senator Kirsten Gillibrand also sent a taped message.

Gillibrand_2I posted about Smith's remarks earlier this week. Said Smith: "I know one of your top priorities is the recognition of marriage between same-sex couples — something that I strongly support, something that I believe in and something that we will make happen together...Although we do not have the number of votes at this time needed to pass the marriage equality gender bill this legislative session, we are committed to pursuing its passage. And the question is not if; the question is when. So our work still needs to happen for it to happen this year. But I’m going to need your help, and I’m going to need your prayers."

You can watch all of them, AFTER THE JUMP...

    HRC wants us to worship haterosexuals. Have haterosexuals tell us what we are and what we can do. It's passive and self-hating.

  4. I'm astounded ... why do good-hearted, well-meaning gays and lesbians keep donating to this group that would hold us back 10 years?
