On Saturday, Elizabeth spoke to an audience of more than 700 at the 31st Annual Human Rights Campaign gala and auction in Boston, thanking the attendees for their work and pledging to be a “loud voice” for equality in the US Senate. She noted that she and her husband Bruce have been supporters and admirers of the Human Rights Campaign for more than a decade.
She made a special note of the LGBT youth that she meets on the campaign trail, who have told her ‘I’m gay and I’m counting on you.’
“I realize that this is my chance,” she said. “This is our chance—to create a better America. An America where people have a chance to get ahead. Where all families matter. Where all kids feel safe and welcomed and can thrive.”
Elizabeth would be more than just another vote for marriage equality and a fully inclusive employment non-discrimination law. She will help lead the charge, to be an LGBT ally not just some of the time, but all of the time.
As she’s known for on the campaign trail, Elizabeth met as many guests as she could, shaking hands and taking pictures.
