I can't tell you adequately how much this will mean to you. All I can say to you is to give it a try. If you are prevented by work or distance, send an e-mail. Even if your representative is initially opposed to what you have to say, one more person - one more voter - may make him or her think twice.
As for me, I'm for freedom. Freedom to meet. Freedom to marry. Freedom to walk the streets unaccosted. Freedom to share a dinner without being kicked out. Freedom to make love without the police ramming down your door. Freedom to visit your sick partner. Freedom to say a final farewell.
This is what gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender deserve.
This is what we should demand.
