San Diego LGBT Pride committee supports uniformed service members who marched in parade

An email from San Diego LGBT Pride, regarding uniformed service members who marched in last weekend's parade:

The promise of America grounded in the Constitution, contained in our Pledge of Allegiance, inscribed on the Statue of Liberty and enunciated by generations of our nation’s leaders is that America stands for liberty, for justice, for equality for all. This has been America’s Pride

To honor all servicemembers without regard to their sexual orientation is commendable, to pursue the United States’ value of equality is honorable, and to support those actions is genuinely American

The mission statement of San Diego LGBT pride is fostering pride in and respect for all lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities, locally, nationally, and globally. It is with great pride and distinction we pursue that mission, and we were honored to do so last Saturday at San Diego's Pride themed America's pride

We fully support, agree with, and respect the decision by Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, and hope that this is just another step on the road to equality.

In Pride,

Dwayne Crenshaw
Executive Director
San Diego LGBT Pride
