Faces of Gay Binational Couples Harmed by DOMA, Unfair Immigration Laws: VIDEO

Domaproject

Lavi Soloway of the DOMA project put this clip together to show the "Gang of Eight" and those opposed to including gays in immigration reform just a few of the couples getting harmed by leaving it out.

If you missed my post from last night, Senator Patrick Leahy has offered up two amendments to the "Gang of Eight" immigration bill that would include gay families. Check them out here.

  1. Bill Clinton signed DOMA. Consigning our community to pointless and cruel discrimination (and forced separation) for 17 years.

    Remember that when it's repealed.

  2. That's very moving. The gang of 8 is so disappointing b/c they seem much more committed to another failure than they are to moving forward.

    It's as though they're saying, "please, let us continue to discriminate, if only just a little."

    DOMA can't end soon enough.

  4. For the vast majority of people, gay issues don't register on their radar screen. Most people are more apathetic than supportive. And politicians are only interested in gays during crunch time when their [our] 4 or influence in certain sectors of our society can be helpful. Others use us the same way the Nazis used the Jews, as an object of hate. Human beings need love, but it seems they also need the opposite, hate, and someone or thing to direct their hate. This is true of ALL PEOPLE, regardless of background, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation.

    the overwhelming Yea vote for DOMA was veto-proof, you seem to have forgotten that little tidbit, same as DADT btw.
