Light Up the Night for Equality

Mark your calendars and check your city's events page for Light Up the Night for Equality, a nationwide candlelight vigil for Marriage Equality on Saturday, December 20th. The good folks at have all the details.
This past November's elections in CA, FL and AZ have galvanized the LGBT community in a way I've never seen before, and I have never been prouder to be a member of that community.
Fight the good fight, folks. Don't continue to allow bigots, fear-mongers and haters to scare people into sheepishly allowing basic human rights to be trampled upon. Stand up and say something. Do something. Stop the hate and join the fight for what you know is right. Don't allow the so-called 'Religious Right' to spread fear and lies.
Thomas Jefferson wrote that "the rights of a minority should never be voted upon by the majority." How can we, more than 200 years later, ignore those words from one of the framers of our Constitution? We can't and we won't.
Stop the hate, end the fear and remove the bigots from power. Join in and make your voices heard.
More of this, anon.
