Senator Maureen Walsh: It's About Equality

Senator Maureen Walsh - Equal Love

Republican State Senator Maureen Walsh opens up about her daughter, and speaks to the right of all people to love and marry whomever they want, no matter their gender and sexual orientation.

Transcript:


"My daughter came out of the closet a couple of years ago. You know what I thought? I was just going to agonize about that. Nothing's different. She's still a fabulous human being. She's met a person that she loves very much. Someday, by god, I want to throw a wedding for that kid. I hope that's exactly what I can do. I was married for 23 years to the love of my life. He died six years ago. I'm a lonely old widow right now. I'm 51 years old, looking for a boyfriend. Not having much luck with that.

"Yet, when I think of my husband and I think of all the wonderful years we had and the wonderful fringe benefit of having three beautiful children, I don't miss the sex. To me, that's kind of what this boils down to. I don't miss that. I certainly miss it. It is certainly not the aspect of that relationship, that incredible bond that I had with that human being that I really, really genuinely wish I still had. I think to myself, 'How could I deny anyone the right to have that incredible bond with another individual in life?'

"Someone made the comment that this is not about equality. Well, yes it is about equality."
