Twelve-year-old Matthew Lannon is a sixth-grader at the Wheeler School in Providence, Rhode Island. He’s a brilliant young man who lit up the room with thoughtful testimony about his same sex parents and marriage equality. Matthew was supported by his two moms at the hearing before the House Judiciary Committee at the Rhode Island State House. We love the fact that Matthew made this heart-warming presentation in the face of anti-gay bigots in the crowd.
“Here is what I believe: There is one thing in life you don’t mess with, it’s LOVE! My parents, and all the other gay and lesbian people here just wanna be happy, just like you! All they want is to be treated fairly…”
This kid has a bright future. We here at Americans Against the Tea Party which young Matthew and his family all the best!
