Bush Daughter Comes Out…for Marriage Equality: VIDEO

It would seem that the children of those who so staunchly fought against equality are now coming around. It could be a case of rebellion, but more likely than not, the younger generations just happen to know and love far more lesbian and gay people than their parents do.

The latest in the line of surprising converts to equality is young Barbara Bush, one of George W. Bush’s twin daughters. Her video is part of  HRC’s NY4Marriage site, which already features videos from Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Whoopi Goldberg, Julianne Moore and others.

According to the New York Times, she states in her video:

“I am Barbara Bush, and I am a New Yorker for marriage equality, New York is about fairness and equality. And everyone should have the right to marry the person that they love.”

The 29-year old is the President of Global Health Corps and has worked Internationally with the American Red Cross, UNICEF and the UN World Food Programme, focusing on the importance of nutrition in ARV treatment. So it should come as no surprise that this daughter of a President should be so fair-minded when it comes to the rights of others.

HRC’s NY4Marriage campaign is being run by Brian Ellner. Ellner’s great success with this campaign comes after a small faction of grassroots organizers halted his potential leadership appointment to Empire State Pride Agenda. It’s good to see that Brian has overcome the “crabs in a barrel” and that his effectiveness is being utilized in New York with this important project.

She joins another outspoken Republican daughter, Megan McCain in joining in the fight for Marriage Equality. Can’t wait to see who else comes out of the closet!

    it is still wrong, regardless of opinions or thoughts the Word of God is right

      Which Word of God are you referring to? The Word that you should treat your neighbor as thyself? Or the Word that you should not eat shellfish? Or is it the Word that you can’t wear clothing made of two fabrics? Or perhaps it was the Word that was written by MEN (not God) hundreds of years after Jesus died and has been translated literally hundreds of times in the past 2000 years? Just looking for some clarification on exactly which Word you are using to justify your bigotry?
