This is the first year we celebrate Martin Luther King Day after the Supreme Court ruled marriage equality legal in all 50 states in this country. We owe a lot to the legacy of Martin Luther King & to quote Jack O'Dell, former Southern Christian Leadership Conference activist & aide to Dr. Martin Luther King, "Dr. King would have fully supported gay marriage" & the late Coretta Scott King agreed stating, “Gay & Lesbian people have families & their families should have legal protections.” We have fought hard to accomplish marriage equality to protect our LGBT families but we still have a ways to go until our LGBT community has full equality in America & globally but King would have been very proud about the advancements we have made in the last decade. In our annual LGBT Year-End Review
& chat with Kate Clinton our favorite political humorist when asked about what she would like to see 2016 bring our community Clinton stated, “I would like to see a continuation of what I see as a whole exciting new generation of LGBT leaders & they wouldn’t even say they’re leaders because they don’t have a hierarchical idea of what they do. They’re activists, they’re feminists & the people who are moving for example the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement & these are young black feminists, some gay some straight & they’re involved in that & fearless.” Let’s all work together & achieve equality for all.
