road.jpg Gay group Soulforce launches letter-writing campaign to Ted Haggard: "This is obviously a moment of personal, familial, and professional crisis for Rev. Haggard. We want to make sure that the voices of intolerance and homophobia are not the only voices that he hears during this difficult time. Through the Soulforce web site, members of our community can share their own experiences and affirm that LGBT people can and do live lives filled with faith, love, and happiness." Pen a letter to Pastor Haggard here.

road.jpg George Michael thanks nurses who cared for his dying mother with free concert: "Almost 10 years ago, during the last week of my mother's life, I told my friends and family that if I ever played my own concerts again, I would make sure to do a free one for NHS nurses. The nurses that helped my family at that time were incredible people, and I realised just how undervalued these amazing people are."

road.jpg Record shop Davey's Basement in small Michigan town boycotted after it sponsors Homecoming parade float for local high school's gay-straight alliance: "Ever since the parade, the record store’s business has been non-existent. Several of our regular customers, who previously ignored the fact that we carry gay pride stickers and other (similar) items, now have informed us that they will do everything in their power to boycott and hurt our business. We are now known amongst the town as the store that publicly ‘promotes queers.’ These ignorant people have been spreading vicious rumors about our store and a mass-scale boycott has come into effect, courtesy of these parade-goers. We cannot financially deal with this. We are struggling daily to even make a couple sales. This boycott is founded on ignorance, and because of it we literally will shut down in a matter of time. That is not the message we want to send to the community; that hatred and homophobia, if in the majority, will accomplish its intended destruction."

  1. These arent my words but i think it sums this situation up pretty nicely:

    " I do believe Tabatabeinejad was foolish for refusing to show identification. But then again, an officer was asked for his name and badge number, and when he refused, nobody tasered him. "

  3. If police abuse is happening to UCLA students, imagine how much is going on to the poor and those without voices.

    Don't become desensitized to seeing people being abused. People that say "oh, what did the student do to deserve it"? Uh, that's a sign that we have become numb to seeing people being beaten down -cause or no cause. IT MUST BE STOPPED NOW PEOPLE.
