Western PA Rep Votes Against DADT Repeal

It is clear to me that he is not a strong supporter of our[Read More…]

Did Gays Cause Srebrenica Massacre

There are no real plausible reasons to support the second class citizenship of LGBTs in the US anymore. It is time for the march for greater equality to continue to move forward.

Tom Goss: Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell

Matt Alber and I were on tour in Febuary when the news about this was most heavy, we met with some discharged servicemembers, heard their stories and wrote a song about it. 100% of the donated proceeds from “Who We Are” goes directly to SLDN.
