Of course, Bob Page (pictured), owner of Replacements, Ltd., is no stranger to lending his hand to LGBT causes. He indicated that contributors who had dug deep for California and New York efforts have not followed suit with regard to the North Carolina ballot initiative. He said that to “win this battle” supporters across the country need to chip in.

Page added that educating the public about the real issues surrounding the aftermath of passage of Amendment One is one of the top challenges, but so necessary. Radio and television ads and commentary are important tools to share the message.
