Carl Paladino: Apologize for your hateful remarks!

    1. Petition by

      Human Rights Campaign

This weekend Carl Paladino, the Republican candidate for Governor of New York, said in a speech that he didn't want children "brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality is an equally valid or successful option." Paladino's divisive remarks come amidst news of suicides by young people who faced anti-gay harassment as well as a horrific hate crime in the Bronx that targeted three gay men.

It is this kind of divisive leadership that makes young LGBT people question their self-worth and gives license to those who use violence to advance their hate.

Tell Carl Paladino that LGBT people are just as "valid" as everyone else and that he owes an apology to every LGBT New Yorker - especially young people who need to know they're OK just the way they are.
