"Rock For Equlity" Takes on Social Security Inequality with Alien Lesbian (video)

This is just one more reason why marriage rights matter. One of the more than 1,100 federal rights and responsibilities that come with a marriage certificate is the right to receive Social Security survivor benefits when your spouse dies.

Visit Rock For Equality for more information about the plight of LGBT seniors. With any luck we'll all live to a ripe old age, but with the way things are, the future looks bleak for LGBT Americans who have paid into the Social Security systems all of our lives. Will those benefits be there when we need them? Not unless we take action.
