“Love is a human experience, not a political statement.” 

– Anne Hathaway (Actress)

In an acceptance speech for the Human Rights Campaign Ally Award in 2008

Anne Jacqueline Hathaway is an American actress and singer. Anne Hathaway made a powerful speech regarding LGBT rights:

“There are people who have said that I’m being brave for being openly supportive of gay marriage, gay adoption, basically of gay rights but with all due respect I humbly dissent. I’m not being brave; I’m being a decent human being. And I don’t think I should receive an award for that or for merely stating what I believe to be true: that love is a human experience, not a political statement. However, I acknowledge that sadly we live in a world where not everybody feels the same. My family and I will help the good fight continue until that long awaited moment arrives, when our rights are equal and when the political limits on love have been smashed.”
