Hitch declared, “I have a personal belief that everybody’s gay.”

Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner wrote a compelling pro-gay piece for September’s Politico. In the article, Hefner stated, “The fight for gay marriage is, in reality, a fight for all of our rights.

Today, in every instance of sexual rights falling under attack, you’ll find legislation forced into place by people who practice discrimination disguised as religious freedom. Their goal is to dehumanize everyone’s sexuality and reduce us to using sex for the sole purpose of perpetuating our species. To that end, they will criminalize your entire sex life.”
