"It's time to end marriage discrimination which is why I supported overturning the Defense of Marriage Act. Simply put: the federal government should not be interfering in the personal decision of who an adult chooses as a partner.

"When it comes to the workplace, it is unacceptable for anyone to be fired simply because of their sexual orientation. The Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) will help protect workers from this type of discrimination and I look forward to moving forward on this legislation in the Senate as soon as possible.
"We all have a role in making sure that Pride Month is not just something we check off on the calendar. "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness" for all Americans is what we are called to strive for every day of the year."

-- Montana Senator Max Baucus in an op-ed for the Montana Standard entitled "Pride month: Time to uphold freedom".
