Thank you, President Biden and Vice-President Harris.
Both of you have been leaders for a long time when it comes to marriage equality.
Love is love is love🌈🌈
Today, I sign the Respect for Marriage Act into law – a landmark civil rights bill that honors the courage and sacrifice of generations of couples who fought for marriage equality and equal rights.

Biden: I've said before and some of you might remember, on a certain TV show, 10 years ago, I got in trouble, marriage, it's a simple proposition, who do you love? And will you be loyal to that person you love? It's not more complicated than that. pic.twitter.com/c3ia2qjP1S

For my entire career, I have fought for LGBTQ+ equality. I voted against marriage discrimination in 1996 — and am proud to lead its repeal now.
Today, we right a grievous wrong and affirm Marriage Equality with this simple, enduring truth: love is love. -NP pic.twitter.com/oJaoo42NJ4

There is history for both the President and Vice-President on this issue.👏🏾👏🏾
I'll never forget then VP Biden making history and declaring support for same-sex marriage, or then District Attorney Kamala Harris marrying same-sex couples in San Francisco back in 2004, which were the first in the nation. They are the most pro-LGBTQ+ administration in history.

“You must start the marriages immediately.”
Two years before marriage equality became the law of the land across our nation, love won in California. We must continue to fight for equality and for the LGBTQ community with the same conviction. pic.twitter.com/lmIZr5N5Qq

Seconds ago, Biden signed the Respect For Marriage Act and gave @VP Harris the pen he used⬇️, a great honor.

Love my president. If you think interracial marriage, gay marriage or being friends with people who don’t look like you is a problem you are a bigot. Plain and simple. https://t.co/91byPNzGjf

No…we will not minimize the Vice-President’s long support of this issue.
diminish the moment by saying there are plenty of pens on that desk. But Jonathan came back and reaffirmed the values, beliefs, support POTUS and VP has held for this community for TWENTY years. Thank you Jonathan and Nicolle, really? Why diminish our VP? I find it disheartening

VP Kamala Harris quotes Harvey Milk “rights are won by those who make their voices heard”

So touching that Joe gave Kamala the pen he used to sign the Respect for Marriage Act considering all her advocacy for same sex marriages and that she’s in an interracial marriage.

Upon the new decree the noble wizard bestowed his heir a token of sincere honor.
The Violet Kween smiled, content that Dark Brandon’s will had granted protection to love in the kingdom.
“Thou hast done it, milord.”
The crowd cheered.
“Nay” said Kween Harris.
