Back to the conversation starters...

My blog over the past two years has been as much of a learning and support tool and advocacy resource as a “who what when where” journal. I'd like to keep it that way.

So here we go with a few interesting stories and videos:

Will Phillips made headlines when he refused to say the Pledge of Allegiance because he doesn't think we have equality for ALL. He's right. And GLAAD recognized him this year with an award for which he gave this acceptance speech. This kid is brilliant. What did you stand up for today?


It's been rumored that some Hollywood couples, Brad and Angelina for example, have vowed to not marry until we have marriage equality. Whether I believe it with the Jolie-Pitts or not, I believe it and respect it with Manhattan borough president Scott Stringer who has proposed to his fiancé and will marry in Connecticut rather than his home state of New York as a statement. It’s quite a courageous statement, but it’s not a stunt for votes; it’s his marriage. “I don’t view this as a politically courageous act,” Mr. Stringer said. “This is something we are going to do personally that we will have with us for the rest of our lives.”
