      Gay marriage and gay adoption should be legal because everyone has the right to marry who they love, and to be a parent regardless of their sexuality.

      I am a gender queer. I am also pansexual (love is love)

      I hate having to hide who I am due to these laws. I just want to be happy.

      As the daughter of a gay man it outrages me that he can not get married. He should have the same rights as I do as a straight Virginian. Why don't those in congress and the house realize that this country was built on the concept of separation of Church and State if they would take their religious views out of the equation they would realize they are wrong to deny same sex marriage.
