Raise Your Voice
“More than ever your voice needs to be heard. It needs to be heard by families, closeted and alone. It needs to be heard by neighbors and clergy, good people who ’don’t know anyone gay.’ It needs to be heard by those who are fearful and those who are mouthing anti-gay slogans in the name of protecting the family. Above all, we need to raise our voices so we can be heard in the struggle for full human rights and respect for all Americans.” - Mitzi Henderson ~ Former PFLAG National President
