Rossana Rosado, publisher of El
Diario La Prensa, has recorded a video for the Human Rights
Campaign's (HRC) Americans for Marriage Equality campaign.
“To me saying 'I do' is the ultimate
promise one person can make to another. That's why I'm an American
for marriage equality,” Rosado says in the 30-second video released
Friday. (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.
