Happy Gay New Year
As we head into the New Year it’s time to reflect on 2011 & strategize what 2012 will bring our LGBT community. This has been an amazing year for our community starting with the repeal & then the certification of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”. Last summer gay marriage finally passed in New York & the Respect of Marriage Act was introduced in the US Senate taking us a step closer to repealing DOMA, the Defense of Marriage Act. The year ended on a fabulous note with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s speech to the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland stating “Some have suggested that gay rights & human rights are separate & distinct but in fact they are one and the same. Like being a woman, like being a racial, religious, tribal, or ethnic minority, being LGBT does not make you less human. And that is why gay rights are human rights, & human rights are gay rights." But these are only words. Now it’s up to us to make LGBT equality happen. Next week begins a new era for our LGBT community. It’s Time For Action!!
Have A Fabulous & Safe New Year Celebration...:)
