Last night, April 20, at the GLAAD Media Awards Los Angeles ceremony, recent trophy snatcher Jennifer Lawrence presented former President Bill Clinton with the Advocate for Change award.
GLAAD cites @PrezBillyJeff‘s advocacy for marriage equality in New York, opposition to North Carolina’s ban on gay marriage and his recent denouncement of the Defense of Marriage Act — which he signed into law in 1996.
Accepting his award, Clinton said:
“I want to keep working on this until not only DOMA is no longer the law of the land, but until all people, no matter where they live, can marry the people they love. I believe you will win the DOMA fight, and I think you will win the Constitutional right to marry. If not tomorrow, then the next day or the next day.”
