Statement from Ellen Sturz, the lesbian activist that heckled the first lady. “I lived and worked in the closet, hiding who I was in order to earn a living.

I’m looking ahead at a generation of young people who could live full, honest, and open lives with the stroke of the President’s pen, and I was hoping that the First Lady would share my concern for all of our young people.”
