on Self At Gillibrand Vigil
Goddess knows, I am tempted to say you can't make this shit up and I just did, which gave me a laugh, and I need more of 'em after this week of homo hell, and this is a time to give into temptation.
I was active with Jon Winkleman back in the heyday of ACT UP/NYC and today he made me aware of some stinky work that happened this week with a key GetEQUAL leader, Alan Bounville.
The more I think about the crappy week it's been for the lives and dignity of gay and questioning kids, and the abject failure of supposed gay education leaders to freely and willingly open their mouths in protest, this GetEQUAL leader's poop-in rings appropriate in the worst way.
I have mentioned to a few people the damage Tif [Todd Fernandez] is doing to the conversation and work being done to build a coalition around expanding the Civil Rights Act to include LGBT people. Attacking the one Senator talking about the subject is making the topic radioactive for any other congressional members to go near.
However the Day 3 Queer SOS blog posting about the Gillibrand vigil brings such dignity to the conversation and surely elevates the issue more than anyone else has.( I added my own highlights to what really grabbed my attention.)
