Vice President Gore's Letter to Steven Cozza, Eagle Scout


November 8, 1999

Mr. Steven Cozza

Dear Steven,

Thank you for writing to me. I am especially encouraged when I read letters from young Americans, like you, who have an interest in solving problems associated with such issues as gay and lesbian rights.

Like other members of society, gay and lesbian citizens work, pay taxes, contribute to their communities, and obey the law. Like other members of our society, they merit equal protection and freedom from discrimination. I am personally and publicly committed to the principles of equality for all people, regardless of their sexual orientation. I believe that people should be judged by their conduct and by their contributions to society, not by their sexual status. In the years to come, I hope you will continue to have an interest in the challenges facing the United States. Your education is very important not only to yourself, but also to your community and our country.

Once again, thank you for writing and for all of your efforts against discrimination. I wish you every success in the future.

Al Gore
