Prospective nominee for President and U.S. Senator Russ Feingold of Wisconsin talk about his progressive vision for America and his staunch support for LGBT Americans and our issues.
New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn give the most inspirational speech of the evening and say, “We will see the day when same-sex couples are truly treated as equals in the eyes of the law.”
