The Loss of a Civil Rights Leader

Filed in National by on October 12, 2011 0 Comments

The gay community lost a hero and leader yesterday with the passing of Dr. Frank Kameny. It was fitting that he passed away on National Coming Out Day.

Kameny was the first person to challenge his firing from the Federal government because he was gay in the courts. He was an astronomer with the Department of the Army and was fired in 1957 for being gay. He could have just quietly walked away and found something else to do but he stood and fought, all the way to the Supreme Court. Even though he lost his case, he persevered to fight for what he believed in, equal rights for the gay community.

Watch the video.  The one thing that stands out – when it comes to Cindy McCain – is how what she says hits directly at her husband.

WTF? Obama Defends DOMA Like a Right-Wing Nutjob

Filed in National by on June 12, 2009 42 Comments

David Anderson must be loving Obama today (in a totally hetero way).  Obama has betrayed same sex rights with his defense of DOMA in court.  Obama didn’t need to defend DOMA.  He also didn’t need to invoke incest and child marriage in the argument.  Read the link.  There is some left-wing anger headed Obama’s way […]
