Playgirl cover model Ronnie Kroell asks for Americans to view the world through a "lens of integration, not separation" in an editorial published on The Huffington Post.
Kroell, who was also runner-up on the reality series Make Me a Supermodel, has toured the United States during the past month, making appearances at Pride events across the country.
"I saw so many beautiful families (my own included) often several generations of families together (often with a dog or two in rainbow garb!) celebrating time with one another and simply wanting what all families want: the right to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness," Kroell writes.
"Sadly, these fundamental rights remain an elusive dream for myself and countless others that identify with the LGBTQA Community, but I am confident that the LGBTQA Equal Rights Movement will soon know the same success of the Woman's Liberation & African American Civil Rights Movements that have prevailed before it."
