Rep. Peter Welch of Vermont: “We’re all the same. This campaign reminds us that we have much more in common and that we ought to embrace diversity and love one another.”
Rep. Nydia Velázquez of New York: “This is a very important issue for America and is a collaboration that is conducive to make our nation a more perfect union. It is a great day when there are efforts to promote peace, togetherness and respect and dignity for all human beings.”
Rep. Mike Honda of California: “The passage of Proposition 8 was a very sad moment for not only the LGBT community, but allies as well. We’re supposed to be a country of equality, that honors and celebrates the love of all committed couples. My wedding day was among the happiest in my life, and these beloved memories are experiences I wish for all couples, regardless of sexual orientation. The NOH8 photographs are all about keeping the conversation going, so that no voice is silenced, and our country can have a vibrant and meaningful discussion about the values we all share.”
Rep. Mike Quigley of Illinois: “I’ve always been a strong supporter of marriage equality for all, so I consider it an honor and a responsibility to draw attention to this cause through unique opportunities like the NOH8 Campaign.”
