Wherever you are . . .

Why I encourage everyone to come out in support of equality:

  • It's 2010 and almost 90% of LGBT youth experience harassment in school, and too many lives have been lost.

  • It's 2010 and you can still be fired from your job in 29 states for being lesbian, gay or bisexual and in 38 states for being transgender.

  • It's 2010 and only five states plus DC recognize that love, not gender, is what matters in a marriage.

  • It's 2010 and more than 14,000 servicemembers have been discharged from the military under the failed "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" law.

Also, The Two Months of Concerts continues tonight with Belle and Sebastian at the Chicago Theatre!
