At Equality California's Harvey Milk Day celebrations over the weekend, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi discussed the the frustration felt by the LGBT community and her commitment to passing the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) and overturning The Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and DADT. Pelosi told her audience, "Don't Ask, Don't Tell will be a memory by Christmas."
If any of these measures is going to be moved forward this year, it's going to take strong leadership in congress. I have no doubt that Nancy Pelosi is on our side. What remains to be seen is whether she still has the clout to gather enough support in congress.
