    "I <3 my gay _______"

    Gay Couple Making a Statement

    My boyfriend (Vince Leus) and I (Daniel Bae) were on campus at University of California, Riverside, and we saw a man holding a sign that read "HOMOSEX IS A GOD DAMNED SIN."

    We wanted to show him that love is love and no one should take that right away from anyone. If homosexuality is a sin, then no one should be able to judge a sin that I committed just because it is different from theirs.

    It's so important to express how we feel and I feel that if there's something that you want to change, you can't just sit around waiting for something to happen; you need to stand up and take action for what you believe in. With all the news about marriage equality, I thought it was important to make a statement not just to this man, but to the whole world.
