Will the LGBT community ever win the marriage battle at the polls?

Erikka Hise — "I don’t know about at the polls. African-Americans didn’t win at the polls. No one should get to vote on our rights."

Tanya Hise — "No, I think that it’s going to have to be an act of Congress."

Michael Moon — "Yes, when we start putting a human face on it, that it’s your brothers and sisters and aunts and uncles."

Hewett Stringer — "Probably not, because traditionally the courts lead the way and hearts and minds get changed later."

Philip McGuire — "No, because we’re the minority. Jesse Ventura said it best last night. Put slavery up for a vote and we’d have slavery today."
