Getting Real

November 13th, 2009 by Admin

Check this out.  A 10-year old boy in Arkansas refused to say the pledge of allegiance in school because the pledge says… with liberty and justice for all, and he reasoned the United States doesn’t ensure liberty & justice for LGBT people!  

The substitute teacher pressed him to stand up and say the pledge but he refused.  

Do we need to change the pledge of allegiance to say with liberty and justice for all, except for LGBT people?   At least that would be honest.

A Watershed Moment

October 29th, 2009 by Admin

After more than a decade, the inclusive hate crimes bill has been signed by President Obama and sealed in law.

This is the first time ANY federal equality measure protecting LGBT rights has become law. And it is the first federal law to explicitly protect transgender people.

It is extraordinary!  A watershed moment!  Love conquered hate!
