Here is National NAACP Chairman Julian Bond's powerful speech from the Human Rights Campaign's Los Angeles Dinner on Saturday, March 14.
Here are a few choice statements from his speech:
"When someone asks me, "are gay rights civil rights?" my answer is always, "Of course, they are." Civil rights are positive legal prerogatives: the right to equal treatment before the law. These are the rights shared by everyone. There is no one in the United States who does not, or should not, enjoy or share in enjoying these rights. Gay and lesbian rights are not special rights in any way. It isn't "special" to be free from discrimination. It is an ordinary, universal entitlement of citizenship."
