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.

Will the Show Go On?

“What’s worse,” added Hamer, “is to see a good man like Pastor Micklos, who demonstrates true Christian values in the film, maligned by people who clearly haven’t seen the film or even bothered to read the synopsis. If they had they would know the Pastor never compromises his biblical beliefs; he’s simply trying to demonstrate what Christianity really means through a Christlike response.”

We Aren’t Still Living in the Dark Ages, Are We?

That’s right. If Lancaster County is successful, women, minorities, and the religious, will be just like gays and lesbians who can be fired, refused entry, or denied housing.

Lower Merion Township May Be First To Adopt Non-Discrimination Ordinance

Hawaii Gov Says No To Equality

Corbett has already made clear that once elected he will push for a constitutional amendment in the PA constitution that will make marriage as being only between one man and one woman, and the general consensus is that if he wins, the Republicans will also win the House, and he will have little trouble getting the constitutional amendment through both the Senate and House quickly, setting the stage for a battle at the ballot box in 2 years.

Can You Change Everything for the LGBT Community?

Charelene can take her story to the President, what is stopping you (or anyone??) from telling your own story? If we all follow that example, it certainly will change everything for the LGBT community.
