Minnesota for Marriage spokesperson, Autumn Leva, talks about the Big Gay Race:
They’re going to have to run a pretty far way to convince people in Minnesota that marriage is not between a man and a woman and that kids do not need a mom and a dad. We’ve seen races to try and change the definition in 31 other states and the amendment has always passed.
Leva’s attempt to take away the excitement and inspiration people felt at the Big Gay Race should be seen as just another tactic Minnesota for Marriage is using to slow us down.
Make no mistake, Ms. Leva, those of us fighting this mean-spirited amendment were so very PROUD to see thousands of people standing up for equality for the second annual Big Gay Race. Nothing you can say can change that.
Just like nothing you can say will convince me that what you’re doing is out of “love.” Attempts to legislate your narrow beliefs while limiting the rights and freedoms of Minnesotans has no place in the Land of 10,000 lakes and I’m going to work hard to make sure you see that come NOvember!
