If you’re a fan of 80’s sitcoms, you may remember Lydia Cornell, who played the blond daughter on “Too Close for Comfort.” She’s speaking out now for marriage equality, as Queerty reports:
My sister is gay, and she never made a choice, but that’s beside the point. The marriage contract is a private contract between two individuals. How does it hurt anyone to let two souls honor their monogamy by allowing them the sanctity and dignity of marriage, as other human beings have a right to? Isn’t this in the Bill of Rights? I am heartsick at the bigotry I see in America today. I can’t believe my sister may never have the same rights I have! And furthermore, according to Suze Orman — as it stands now, civil unions do not permit the transfer of a deceased person’s estate to the partner. Next of ‘kin’ is first in line.
Every voice added to the chorus advances the struggle. Kudos to Lydia for joining the fight!
