Equals in every way!

Here from a fb status, writer said could be shared:

DANIEL MANSFIELD

We are in every city of every nation. We are of every race and class. We are your neighbors, your policemen, your doctors, your firemen, your teachers, your cooks, your soldiers, we are your brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, sons, and daughters. We are homosexuals, bisexuals and transgender..and even identify as queer.  We are your equals in every sense of the word. We deserve a voice, we deserve to be heard, we deserve to be recognized and afforded the same protections as any minority against intolerance, hate, bigotry and discrimination. We, just like you, deserve to feel safe at home, at work, at play and in the community. We deserve representation on the political stage. We deserve your compassion, empathy, respect and recognition. We deserve to have what you and we once fought for but now only you enjoy. Grant us equality and freedom from persecution for our values and for our thoughts. We deserve the full measure of freedom that our nation can offer. We will not settle for anything less!


Also, watch COUNTDOWN segment where DAN SAVAGE discusses current failures of hate groups to stop equality.

NSD To Honor founder BARNEY FRANK & his soon to be husband!


Email from National Stonewall Demoncrats posting to share.

SAVE THE DATE

Capital Champions w/ Honored Guest Rep. Barney Frank
April 24, 2011 - 7:00PM
Washington, DC


This year's annual reception to honor pro-equality champions in our nation's capital will be like no other. We all know Barney is retiring after this year, so we want to honor him for his years of service in the US Congress, his leadership as one of the most well-known and well-respected LGBT leaders in the country, and, of course, as the founder of National Stonewall Democrats.

With the recent announcement of Barney's pending marriage to his long-time partner, Jim Ready, we have even more reason to celebrate. So clear your calendar and stay tuned for details.

If you would like to be a sponsor of this year's event, contact Jerame Davis at 
jdavis@stonewalldemocrats.org for details.

Will there be a Prop 8 bombshell hidden in Romney's tax returns?


Good piece from Scott Wooledge on Daily Kos. Revealing that Romney gave Burger King
stock worth $1.9 million to Mormon Church as well as from Domino's, DDI, Marquee Holdings and more.   Will there be a Prop 8 bombshell hidden in Romney's tax returns?

"It seems clear that Mitt Romney is not at all interested in sharing his tax returns with the American voters. For now, he's stalling the GOP, but I wouldn't be surprised to see him take his hemming and hawing, double talk act right into the general.
It's understandable. His income will be monstrously large, I'm sure. And there's just no way to spin obscene wealth well, as John "I don't know how many houses I have" McCain found out. You either are from the "real streets of America," or not so much. And a tax return can put that in very stark relief. Many are already commenting on how "message challenged" he is in discussing his own membership in the One Percent Club™.
Recall a post-mortem in the New York Times concluded "Mormons Tipped Scale in Ban on Gay Marriage." They reported:“We’re going to lose this campaign if we don’t get more money,” the strategist, Frank Schubert, recalled telling leaders of Protect Marriage, the main group behind the ban. The campaign issued an urgent appeal, and in a matter of days, it raised more than $5 million,
 Still, if it turns out Romney was particularly helpful in passing the marriage equality banning amendment, this might be particularly infuriating news to the LGBT community still smarting from that loss.
Yes I would think Log Cabin Republicans and GOProud might be mumbling a bit in back rooms.
There is still National Organization for Marriage, who has been fighting mightily to keep itsdonors a great big secret in defiance of court orders. Could Mitt be one of its big secret bank-rollers?
