PFLAG Board Member Participates in Protest Over NY Senate's Marriage Equality Decision

Last night, advocates for marriage equality took to the streets of Manhattan to protest the New York State Senate’s 24-38 vote to deny basic civil marriage rights to gay and lesbian citizens of their state. Never ones to miss an opportunity to demonstrate their support for equality and offer their voices, Dale Bernstein, a member of PFLAG National’s board, and her husband, Gary, attended the protest that was held last night in Union Square. You can watch Dale’s comments here and hear her reminder to those who voted to deny marriage equality that they’ll hear from her at the ballot box.
