Gay Couple Will Get Married On Rose Parade Float

This is great! I love that children watching the parade will be able to see this amazing expression of love!

On the heels of conservatives screaming about "religious liberty" and "freedom of speech" for Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson, they are now calling for a boycott of the parade unless the gay marriage is dropped.

Via L.A. Times:

The AIDS Healthcare Foundation’s float, “Living the Dream: Love Is the Best Protection,” was created to celebrate victories in 2013 for gay marriage advocates, including Supreme Court decisions upholding the repeal of California’s Proposition 8 and striking down a key part of the Defense of Marriage Act. 
Foundation spokesman Ged Kenslea said the organization supports legally sanctioning same-sex marriage because it encourages more stable relationships among gay men as well as behavior that will prevent the spread of HIV. 
“We believe that marriage saves lives,” he said.
Well said!  I will be watching this with pride!!
