"Marriott takes seriously its obligations as a community leader when it comes to standing with the LGBT community as true allies in equality. It is fitting that at the end of a month commemorating the history of progress and pride within the LGBT community, we receive word that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) will also become just that - history. We say Bravo!"
