Richardson Keynote Speaker at Human Rights Campaign Gala

This past Saturday, Governor Richardson was in Los Angeles, my hometown, to be the keynote speaker at the Human Rights Campaign's annual gala.

Gay South Florida has the details
New Mexico Governor and 2008 presidential candidate Bill Richardson pledged his support for equal domestic partnership rights, fighting HIV/AIDS internationally and repealing the military's anti-gay "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy as keynote speaker at the annual Human Rights Campaign Los Angeles Gala Dinner on Saturday.

'This country is tired of the politics of hatred and division. What we need in this country is someone that can bring us together," said Gov. Richardson. "Gay and lesbian families deserve respect. What we don't need are constitutional amendments designed to exclude supportive, devoted couples. We need to extend the rights due to all of us as Americans."
