Not everyone is applauding Sec. of State Hillary Clinton's historic LGBT rights speech from earlier this month; with help from GetEqual, Jesse and Max, a binational gay couple forced to live in London because of inequality in U.S. law, call out what they perceive as hypocrisy in the groundbreaking directive. The video, after the jump.
Writes GetEqual in the YouTube video summary:
Across the globe this year, binational LGBT couples are living in exile or living separated from one another simply because of discriminatory laws in the United States. Despite being U.S. citizens, the American half of these couples is forced to choose between love and country.
But this wrong could be solved tomorrow. Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano has the power to issue these couples "humanitarian parole," bringing binational couples home for the holidays. Please go to www.getequal.org/gethome to sign our petition asking Secretary Napolitano to bring Jesse, Max, and thousands of other exiled and separated couples home this holiday season!
