Joe Biden Comes Out For Gay Marriage

AUDIO: New Exclusive conclusion of our audio montages with 5 filmmakers about their films scheduled this week at the Boston LGBT Film Festival that runs through May 13th. We also had the opportunity to talk to the filmmakers about crucial issues facing our LGBT community @ OUTTAKE VOICES™
While President Obama continues to evolve about marriage equality Vice President Joe Biden told NBC's David Gregory on "Meet the Press" that he's "absolutely comfortable" with gay marriage. Biden was calm & collective as he explained to Gregory that marriage should be about being loyal to someone you love, whether that marriage is between 2 women or 2 men or a man & a woman, "I am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women & heterosexual men & women marrying one another are entitled to the same exact rights, all the civil rights, all the civil liberties." Chad Griffin, a member of the Obama campaign's national finance committee & about to head HRC stated, "I'm grateful that the vice president of the United States is now publicly supporting marriage equality & I hope very soon the president & the rest of our leaders, Republicans & Democrats in Congress, will fall in line.” Biden was very moving on the issue talking about the love he had seen in the eyes of a couple of kids he met for their 2 dads. David Axelrod, a senior adviser to the Obama campaign, wrote on Twitter that Biden & Obama share the view that all married couples should have the same legal rights. So this is all good. I just wish that the media would stop using the offensive term “same-sex marriage” to describe marriage equality. Updates to Come…:)
