This adorable couple of 50 years want you to vote! Meet Lennie and Pearl

In what may well be the sweetest get-out-the-vote ads you ever see, a lesbian couple of over 50 years — Lennie Gerber and Pearl Berlin — talk about what is at stake in this election, as well as steal our hearts with their obvious love and affection for one another.

“We just do [love each other], we are in love and we tell each other that every day,” Gerber says.

The couple live in North Carolina, having moved there together in the 1970s, and fought for the right to marry, challenging the state’s constitutional amendment defining marriage as only between a man and woman. They wed as soon as they were legally able.

Gerber says she still can’t believe that they were finally able to get married in their own community.

“It’s just amazing… We are so lucky,” she says.

But she adds that “we have a lot to worry about in this election.” Donald Trump has voice support for appointing Supreme Court justices in the mold of antigay Antonin Scalia, and has said he is in favor of overturning same-sex marriage.

He also supports the First Amendment Defense Act (FADA), which would legalize anti-LGBTQ discrimination across the country. His anti-LGBTQ advisers recently cost him the support of the Log Cabin Republicans.

“Who am I voting for?” Berlin responds when asked off camera. “Why would you even ask?” she adds, laughing.

“It’s well past time for America to have a woman president,” Gerber says.
