It was an important inch we gained, but we've still got miles to go before we sleep.

Yep, no sleep until "the gay agenda"* is fully fulfilled.

* i don't subscribe to the notion that there is a "gay agenda" but I do like to poke fun at those who believe there is this big rainbow/lavender-pink-blue flag conspiracy.

It was Very Important, and i know i talk about the other issues a lot.. maybe it sounds like i'm unsatisfied, i don't take it for granted.. i mean i'm 23 so i obviously haven't been fighting this fight as long as many, many who lost their lives continuing this fight, but it's going to take the next generation, and the next etc to continue this fight.. we can't become complacent

You mean you never got your glitter handbook or the sparkle communicator?

We are usually way better organized than this.

From an outsider's perspective, it may look like that but it couldn't have been farther from the truth. Every victory we gain, we have to temper that with the knowledge that while some of us have moved forward, others are held or even pushed back. That while in North America, we now have the freedom to marry, but our brothers and sisters are being raped, imprisoned and murdered in Africa.

Agreed. You are only 3 years older than me but i suspect that by the time we're both old and grey there will still be some issues having to do with some of the injustices we're talking about here.

It is my hope that those injustices will have long been a thing of the past in the USA and other similar countries. Of course the countries of Africa and much of Asia are just starting to address and acknowledge the fact that LGBTIQ people actually exist in their country so it's quite likely (at least I hope) that if these things are still an issues in the world it will long have been in the past in America in the 2095 or whatever.

It was Pride Week. I suspect whoever was in charge had a heck of a weekend.

^^ Great minds think alike. I was just writing about something along those lines.

Exactly, like the Governmental Genocide of AIDS in the US, Africa is forcing Genocide upon their people we deal with it on a Microlevel to survive, but on a Macrolevel people are essentially getting deleted without thought

Oh, you make me feel so old


i would hope these issue are dealt with before i turn old and grey..well, i don't think i'll ever be grey, because this Queen is going to stay a Queen!

but, yeah.. i would hope these issues can be dealt with now, or sooner so we can just breath for a second

Now you both are making me feel old at 27.


I agree that though we might not see discrimination go completely away in our lifetimes, we are going to be witnesses to its dismantling. These are going to be dichotomous times of beautiful and painful growth.

This is exactly what we have been saying, we are viewed as Second Class.

“Words do matter,” said Niki Zupanic of the American Civil Liberties Union of Montana. “Even though the ban can’t be enforced any longer, keeping them on the books is sending the message that gay and lesbian citizens are second class.”

In this 'politically correct' world everyone could be viewed as 'second class citizens' (whatever you do; do not voice an objective opinion) as OPINIONS are no longer allowed.
