Washington State About to Pass Marriage Equality

That is Republican state Representative Maureen Walsh of the state of Washington. Walsh is speaking out in favor of legislation that will legalize same-sex marriage. It passed both the House and Senate, and will be signed by Democratic Governor Chris Gregoire. Interesting note: Governor Gregoire was not originally a supporter of marriage equality.

I know some of my activist friends in the LGBT equality movement wish change would happen quicker. I do too. But change doesn't often come as a tidal wave. It's more of a slow movement. And occasionally, you can capture an individual changing, such as in this very moving video from Representative Walsh.
