Five bills that greatly effect gay and transgender citizens are before the U.S. Congress. One would topple the so-called Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which bans federal recognition of same-gender marriage even in states where it is legal. Another would prohibit anti-gay and anti-transgender discrimination in the workplace. Another would allow foreign same-gender spouses of American citizens the same immigration rights as binational heterosexual couples. Another bill would allow gays to serve openly and without lying in the military. Another would protect from hate crimes.

This is that frightening Gay Agenda of which we have all heard.
