March Picture Capitol The critics of the National Equality March said we don't have any political staying power nor do we know how to effectively lobby. Let's prove them wrong.

Below is a list of A+ supporters of New York Congressman Jerrold Nadler's "Respect for Marriage Act' which, if enacted, will repeal the loathsome Defense Of Marriage Act. There is simply no reason why every Democrat is not on that list and also some of our Republicans allies. If you see your Congressperson's name missing below, get a group of your fellow activists and friends and go see them in person. Call. E-mail. Refuse to contribute to any Democrat that is not on this legislation to repeal DOMA.

Ironically, missing from this list are such obvious ones as Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Democratic Leader Steny Hoyer , openly gay Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank, California Congresswoman Maxine Waters, DCCC Chairperson Chris Van Hollen and other key Democrats.

Let's get busy. Ever Democrat must join this list and we must remain firm to not contribute to anyone who doesn't support this effort to repeal DOMA....even our friends.

Let's begin to end Gay Apartheid today with this simple step.
