WASHINGTON, DC – The Steering Committee of the Gay, Lesbian and Allies Senate Staff (GLASS) Caucus released the following statement on President Obama’s statement on marriage equality:
“As an organization created to promote the welfare and dignity of LGBT employees in the U.S. Senate, the Gay, Lesbian and Allies Senate Staff (GLASS) Caucus joins in the chorus of our community to celebrate President Obama’s statement on marriage equality.
“While we do not take specific policy positions, as we witness a sitting president evolve on this issue, we are reminded of how far we’ve come since GLASS was founded in 2004, and how proud we are to be working openly in the Senate today. As a bipartisan organization, we believe that full equality for the LGBT community should supersede politics. We look forward to sharing this message in our individual and professional capacities as we live and work among our Senate colleagues, and we thank the President for his leadership.”
