John Lewis was one of the truest allies LGBTQ people ever had

John Lewis was not only one of the greatest Americans who ever lived, he was one of the truest allies ever LGBTQ people had. While he lies in state, I wanted to post a video of him speaking on behalf of our rights. And I didn't just find one. I found many videos encompassing many years of this man standing up for us - especially on the floors of Congress, encouraging us to speak for ourselves, and always reminding us that we are worthy of dignity.

Let's never forget him nor his words of encouragement and power.

Thank you for the videos of John Lewis. These, like so many things nowadays, bring tears to my eyes. Partly because of the courage of people like Lewis and partly because the struggle for rights is not over.

I have the greatest respect for John Lewis. As a black man, he fought for equal rights. It came as no surprise that he stood up for us as well. We have lost an icon.
