The campaign will hold its NOH8 on the Hill photo session on

“Over the past three years more than 100 members of Congress
have joined together with the NOH8 Campaign to stand up for
equality,” Ros-Lehtinen, a Republican, says in the nearly 1-minute
“Standing together, we have added our voices to the growing call
for equal rights for all Americans,” added Lowenthal, a Democrat.
