Democratic Candidates Debate GLBT Issues Tonight

Tonight, the Democratic presidential candidates and planning to do a live debate about issues important to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered Americans. The debate will be on the LOGO network and on this website. It's being called "Visible Vote 08."

I'm looking forward to watching this debate. I have a lot of gay and lesbian friends and most of them feel excluded from the political process. But look at what happened in Massachusetts back in June. Several gay and lesbian couples talked with some state legislators and that was all it took to make they realize it's wrong to ban same-sex marriage and civil unions.

This debate will show that GLBT Americans have a voice and a right to speak up for what they want out of this country. I'm glad to see these presidential candidates listening to this group.
