PELOSI: “This Congress, this has been a scene where we have fought the fight on legislation, fought the fight presenting the case in the court of public opinion and to bolster the case in the Supreme Court. And on this monumental day, my thoughts are with Phyllis Lyon and the late Del Martin who shared their lives together for decades. They were mentors to so many of us in San Francisco for decades about civic engagement, some of that civic engagement related to LGBTQ rights. They were an inspiration as I say to many of us. When people say to me, it’s easy for you to be for some of these things because you are from San Francisco, people are so tolerant there. I said, tolerant? That’s a condescending word to me. This is not about tolerance, this is about respect of the LGBTQ community.”
