"Every American has the right to live proud of who they are, whatever their race, religion, gender identity, or sexual orientation may be. As a City Councilwoman in 1986, I introduced the first domestic partnership legislation in New York. Since then, we have seen incredible progress - but we must not stop until we achieve full equality for all under the law... I am proud to have been named one of the most pro-equality members of Congress. I will continue to champion pro-LGBT bills promoting marriage equality, opposing discrimination and creating immigration equality until the federal government recognizes full and equal rights for LGBT Americans."

-- New York Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney on being named one of the Think Progress' "11 Most Pro-Gay Representatives." Maloney authored the Family and Medical Leave Inclusion Act which would give same-sex couples equal access to unpaid family leave.
