It goes without saying thatRicky Martin isn’t support Donald Trump. His girl is Hillary and over the weekend, he announced the launch of the LGBT for Hillary group in an email to fans. The latin heart throb urged people to donate to her campaign saying;
“Hillary has been a fighter for us for years, from supporting equal workplace legislation to working for equal rights for trans Americans. Now we’re standing with her. Will you join us?
Growing up in the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico, I never dreamed that I would one day be a proud, out gay father of two beautiful little boys, in a country where marriage equality was the law of the land. Now, that’s just an average day — that’s what real progress is.
Hillary knows this, and she’s not going to stop fighting. But in order to protect and build on the progress we’ve made, we need to win this election.”
Some people may think LGBT rights are a non-issue in the upcoming election (which would explain why they’ve been discussed a total of 12 seconds through four GOP debates so far), but they’re more important now than ever. All of the GOP candidates (except Trump and Kasich) are determined to roll back the clock on marriage equality if elected and Marco Rubio just announced his dangerous intention to nominate SCOTUS judges who’ll vote in favor of a constitutional amendment BANNING same-sex marriage.
