While abroad in Morocco, one of 77 countries in which it is illegal to be gay, Anthony Mercurio was dumped by his first love. "I was pretty devastated," Anthony recalls. Unable to express the real reason for his heartbreak, at least Anthony had his host grandmother there to comfort him.

The time has come for the entire LGBT community and our allies to join this fight. It is about us. It is a simple fact that no one can or should try to change who we are.
