Gay Day, Queer Year?

Gay Day, Queer Year?

Being truly equal participants in Life, Liberty and all things American will take more than a right to get married. All of us, need to keep that in mind, and need to keep working for progress on all fronts where LGBT’s are treated differently than others.

Motion to Stay May Be More Important Than Judge’s Ruling

Motion to Stay May Be More Important Than Judge’s Ruling

We know that the ruling will be appealed no matter what then decision is, and Walker, almost painfully, laid out a meticulous case so that there was no stone unturned and the court record would be as detailed as could be as the case moves through the appeals process towards the Supreme Court. But what about the time between now and the appeal?

People Who Make Up THeir Own Rules

People Who Make Up THeir Own Rules

This is really a rant, that isn’t connected to what I usually write about (at least not too closely connected), so if that isn’t what your in the mood for, just skip this post. Tomorrow, I’m writing about the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), so I’ll be back on track.

Is Target Painting a Bulls Eye on LGBT Rights?

Is Target Painting a Bulls Eye on LGBT Rights?

For me, this issue is far bigger than Minnesota politics. This “socialism” verbiage is common GOP-talk at every level of government. And, here in Pennsylvania, we have a GOP governor candidate who thinks everyone on unemployment wants to sit around and just pick up a check. He claims to find tons of open jobs in a newspaper classified, but fails to see that these pay too low of a wage for the average unemployed to live at the standard their previous job provided. So Thomas Emmer is blaming the waters and waitresses, and Tom Corbett is blaming the unemployed.

Kylie Minogue Monday Pick Up

Today’s Kylie video is one of my all time favorite Kylie songs, and this concert performance of it from the Showgirls concert really rocks!  If I’m having a hard day, this is one song on my iPod that I go to, and I’m always smiling and dancing by the end of it. It is the right amount of campy fun, dance beats and all the stuff that makes Kylie a goddess! [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jaEFCMaPGLU[/youtube]

Follow-up on Lancaster County Human Relations Commission

What’s happening in Lancaster County should be a wake up to anyone living in any location where LGBT rights are protected under a HRC. The LCHRC has existed for many years, but recently there was a petition to add Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity and Expression to their protected classes, and two of the commissioners responded with a proposal to eliminate the LCHRC all together. The following is a write up by Bolton Winpenny about[Read More…]
