Gay Rights Continue to Advance

By Charlotte Robinson, August 01, 2011
July ends with a story on pop star Miley Cyrus inking a tattoo of an equal sign on her wedding ring finger & tweeting about it saying "All love is equal" in support of gay marriage. As we enter into August it’s amazing how our LGBT community advanced in the last weeks. Gay Marriage became legal in New York which serves as the game-changer for marriage equality. California set a September 6th court date for hopefully the last chapter on Prop 8 & the Senate held the first hearing on "The Respect for Marriage Act" endorsed by Obama which will repeal DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act). “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” was finally certified & will be removed from military policy on September 20th when our gay & lesbian service members can finally serve openly & truthfully for the first time in US history. The next step will be combating homophobia as the 2012 presidential election revs up & the GOP candidates continue attacking our LGBT community. Let’s keep turning their hateful agendas around & expose them for the bullies they are as the summer heats up....:) Exclusive Audio Chat with Nicole Conn about her new film “A Perfect Ending” that stars Morgan Fairchild, John Heard, Barbara Niven & newcomer Jessica Clark & more @ OUTTAKE VOICES™ Hear Audio Interviews w/ LGBT Leaders @OUTTAKE VOICES™ SUPPORT OUR QUEST @ OUTTAKE™ EQUALITY STORE...:) View Our Historic Short Trailer on Gay Marriage

The Human Rights Campaign launched a national campaign “Demand Equality Face to Face” encouraging members and supporters to schedule meetings with their Senators and Representatives during the upcoming August recess, when most members hold events and meetings in their districts to hear directly from constituents.The campaign builds on the incredible progress over the past few weeks—the momentous victory for marriage equality in New York, the first-ever Congressional hearing on repealing the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and the President’s announcement of his support for the Respect for Marriage Act to repeal DOMA. In the national action alert, we’re urging supporters of equality to use this August to meet directly with your elected officials to discuss repeal of DOMA and employment non-discrimination.
