Good news for this weekend's LGBT rights march - Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has endorsed the National Equality March [pdf] calling it "part of a larger movement for peace and social justice."
No word yet on whether or not Stonewall Democrats will change their mind and endorse the march now that the major party leaders are jumping on board.
Complete text of the letter after the jump.
Dear Member of the National Equality March Steering Committee,
As you prepare to come to Washington DC for the National Equality March, I write to join you in your commitment to ensure equality under the law. As Senate Majority Leader, I will continue to work tirelessly to pass the Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Act and the Employee Non-Discrimination Act, as well as to repeal the "Don't Ask Don't Tell" policy. I will also continue to advocate for funding of HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, research, and housing programs.
I believe that every American should be treated equally under the law regardless of religion, sexual orientation, gender, race, or other forms of identity. I see your struggle for equality as part of a larger movement for peace and social justice.
My best wishes to you.
United State Senator
