Gina, a long-time Out4Immigration volunteer, speaks out and asks, "What would you do if your government denied you the right to live in your country with the person you love?" It's a stark look at the realities same-sex binational couples are forced to confront each day, while too many important people -- elected officials and those in charge of large organizations that collect a lot of money from the LGBT community and our supporters -- don't do all they can to end this gratuitous cruelty.
Laws like the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and our broken immigration system stand in the way of Gina being with the woman she loves. And she's not alone. Some 36,000 same-sex binational couples face deportation hearings, separations and hardships that are too numerous to list.
Watch and listen to Gina's story. Then, do something.
