House Representatives Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Florida and Alan Lowenthal of California have recorded a video calling on colleagues to join the NOH8 Campaign, which raises awareness and funds for gay rights causes.

The campaign will hold its NOH8 on the Hill photo session on Wednesday, October 2.

“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 video.

“Standing together, we have added our voices to the growing call for equal rights for all Americans,” added Lowenthal, a Democrat. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)

During the campaign's third NOH8 on the Hill photo session in June, Ros-Lehtinen became the first congressional Republican to pose for a photo shoot.
