08 Pride Post #17: Quotable Pride-“After us will come many other countries”

“We were not the first, but I am sure we will not be the last. After us will come many other countries, driven, ladies and gentlemen, by two unstoppable forces: freedom and equality.

We are not legislating, ladies and gentlemen, for remote unknown people. We are expanding opportunities for the happiness of our neighbors, our work colleagues, our friends, our relatives.”

Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, upon the legalization of same-sex marriage in Spain, June 30, 2005
