Today, the Pride Agenda launched our second TV ad as part of our campaign across New York to show how real New York families are hurt when same-sex couples aren’t allowed to marry.
Featured in our second ad are Karen, Luke and Jessica Schuster of Rochester, NY. Karen has a gay son and three straight children, and she wants to know why her son Luke does not have the same rights as her daughter Jessica. In Karen's words, If Jessica meets someone and falls in love and wants to get married, she can. But if Luke meets someone and falls in love and wants to get married, he can't. It's not equal treatment. This painful situation is the reality for thousands of families across New York State. We need the New York State Senate to act now and pass the marriage equality bill so that same-sex couples will no longer be treated as second-class citizens.
