Leslie says that activism is happening with so much force now, things will have to change. "You've got Diane Sawyer confronting a conservative homophobe from Florida on TV, you've got a couple of ministers in Massachusetts who are refusing to sign any marriage licenses until gay couples can get married, you've got transsexuals getting legal custody of their children. Everyday some new important legal actions are being taken on behalf of lesbians, gay, bisexuals and transsexuals. Things will change because we will make them change. It just takes time and patience, neither of which An and I have in spades!"
