This is so touching.
The HRC, Human Rights Campaign, is fighting for LGBT couples to get adoption rights because despite the strides that have been made to allow gay couples to adopt, it's still a huge struggle.
With more than 100,000+ children in youth and foster care, the HRC has created the above video to show you how they're fighting for LGBT couples and how important it is for children to get the chance they deserve - a loving home.

Dolly Parton's going to be PISSED!
An employee at Dollywood's Splash Country asked a lesbian visitor to turn her Human Rights Campaign "Marriage Is So Gay" t-shirt inside out before entering the park.
Olivier Odom obliged, but only because she wanted the kids she was with to have a good time.
Following the incident Odom wrote the Tennessee park asking them to "implement policies that are inclusive of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people; conduct staff sensitivity training; and issue a public statement indicating that the park is inclusive of all families."
Good for her!
Dollywood said they'll reach out to her and her wife Jennifer Tipton to discuss the issue.
