HRC's National Coming Out Day Video

This week, HRC launched a new video on You Tube. The clips reel is an inspiring montage of some of the country's leading celebrity, creative and political leaders talking about why equality and fairness for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Americans matters to them. Given the scandal in Washington over the last couple of weeks, these powerful words are an important reminder of who Gay Americans really are.
