It’ll be a matter of months before California will be the 13th state in the union to allow same sex marriage.

Today I spotlight, Bishop Desmund Tutu. He has been a champion for many causes including HIV/AIDS awareness, Homophobia, Poverty, Racism and so much more. He was instrumental in shedding light to the world about apartheid in South Africa in the 1980’s.
Today I spotlight a true civil rights activist, Rep. John Lewis of Georgia. One of the many men who worked along with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr and countless others, he has dedicated his life for equal rights not only for African Americans but also Latinos, Asians, Women and Gays. He is a true ally to the LGBT community. And on yesterday he was awarded the Medal of Freedom by President Obama. Job well done Rep. Lewis.
