We are confident that Rea is the right leader for the Task Force as we work toward our vision of a society that welcomes, respects and honors each and every lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender person.”


— Mark Sexton, Co-Chair, National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Board
Miami Herald, June 24, 2008

“People are fair here in this state (Minnesota) so we really are working for it and we know it will happen. There will be legal recognition of our relationship at some point.”
