Election 2012 Thoughts

Election 2012 Thoughts

The take-home message must be that a future of Equality won’t come because of how we rally and demand for our President to act. It won’t be created by those who feel they are keeping The President’s feet to the fire to push change. It will only come about with throngs of people of every age bracket, color, race, and every other descriptor doing the ground work and creating cultural change across the country. We must too, work to hold our elected officials accountable, but the real work if the ground work: each and every one of us must be an active participant instead of a passive observer.

Election Day: Three reasons to vote.

Election Day: Three reasons to vote.

Equality Pennsylvania Announces Slate of Endorsed Candidates for the 2012 Primary

Additionally, Equality Pennsylvania endorsed five openly gay candidates seeking state legislative offices this year. Adrian Shanker, President of Equality Pennsylvania, stated, “In a state that has never seen an openly gay legislator, it is encouraging to see five well-qualified openly LGBT candidates seeking the opportunity to serve, and all in the same year!” The five candidates are: Roy Christ (Dauphin County), Jeff Dahlander (Susquehanna, Wayne, Wyoming), Chris Dietz (Dauphin), Kelly McEntee (Dauphin), and Brian Sims (Philadelphia County). Pennsylvania has never had an openly gay state legislator.

Steel City Stonewall Democrats make endorsements for Election 2012

As for Mr. Gainey, I think he well deserved an endorsement. As much as I have had a great working relationship with Joe Preston, and I like him, it may be time for a change and bring in someone who will really get things moving in Harrisburg. Gainey displays a real passion and energy for leadership, and I believe him as he talks about advocating for the whole of his community, which includes me.

What ID’s will allow you access to vote in Pennsylvania?

So what constitutes an acceptable ID? What ID’s will work, and what ID’s will not be enough? The information below makes it clear what ID’s are OK, and anything else is not OK. Additionally, if you do not have an approved ID, what you need to get one is also detailed below. I have highlighted some text in RED to draw additional attention to it. For folks within the LGBTQ community, especially trans persons and those who don’t conform to what is thought of as traditional gender roles, this is where a real problem may occur.

Why not instead, look at getting out Lesbian, Gay, Bi or Trans persons elected all across the state and start by looking for those districts where a candidate is unopposed? and today I have two of those types of districts to discuss:
