“Today is another historic step for equality in our nation. The announcement that the White House and the US Department of Justice will no longer assert the constitutionality of discrimination based on sexual orientation sends a powerful message to all Americans. I applaud President Obama and Attorney General Holder for their leadership and commitment to equality for the LGBT community. While there remains much to accomplish, we should stop for a moment and be proud that our community has come together to successfully advocate for what is right for America. I thank all of those who worked so diligently to overturn DOMA including Lambda Legal, ACLU, GLAD, NCLR, HRC and Freedom to Marry. But let me be very clear, we will not stop working until every LGBT American has the same rights and dignity as every other American. Congress should waste neither its time, nor its limited resources trying to protect this discriminatory law.”
