Betsey Brock is the kind of person who just makes you want to have a good time. Lucky for us homos, she generously put her infectious enthusiasm to work for the cause of marriage equality in Washington state. Betsey spent many days out knocking on doors and doing phone shifts, starting conversations with people to try and get them to think about the importance of the equality for queer couples. My girlfriend and I had dinner with Betsey in Seattle a few days before the election, and she told us about her methods for talking to strangers over the phone. Hearing how she opened up the topic and engaged people that she didn’t know was really inspiring to me; she made me believe that reaching out to strangers this way can really have an effect. When I saw the breakdown of the votes in Washington State, I could see the influence that Betsey’s efforts had on the modest margin of votes which passed marriage equality. Betsey worked so much harder for our liberties than we even did— the fact that she chose to spend her weekends working for the benefit of others means so much. You rule Betsey! Thank you so much!!!—TB
