He is also mindful of the fact that voters of this state on two occasions have said that marriage is between a man and a woman, and it's part of our Constitution."

  1. Yes! A March on Washington in November! or October for NCOD (and better weather)?

    Let's get the show on the road! I think there's a lot of energy that should be tapped and show to mainstream 'merica.

  2. Sad to see Nevada continue to be so gay unfriendly.
    Those San Antonio police appear to be fucking idiots. No wonder people question authority when assholes make these kinds of mistakes. Pathetic.

  3. It's weird, the average person in Nevada doesn't seem to be anti-anything. This is a very leave us alone type of place. However, our government is chock full of Mormons and other right wing types. It doesn't help that we sorely lack in leadership in ur LGBT community. After I was verbally gay bashed at our government center last week, only two LGBT leaders reached out to me. Our city council members, on the other hand called me right away. Until we get effective leadership at our local LGBT center we will continue to be second class citizens here.

  4. I was there on October 14, 1979, as a questioning young teen. I was there on October 11, 1987, as an out, loud and proud gay man. I will be there in 2009, as a defiantly queer gent.

  5. I still am amazed at how ignorant the average joe can be in Oklahoma. They tend to be so unbelievably unrealistic in their opinions and how they lead their lives, with so many of them using "The Bible" to explain or, more commonly, to excuse their surreal behaviors. You have local, state and national legislators who ignore basic tenets of US governmental and Constitutional rules, amazingly daft and "blind" public educators who forget that they aren't in a private institution, and private institution educators who refuse to allow open or atleast thoughtful discussions about issues in their classrooms. As a former resident, and a person who will only go back there for funerals (how sad-it is a uniquely beautiful part of our union), I can tell you that twenty-five years later there are still giant parts of my life, and so many others, that are damaged beyond fixing due to the negligence and ignorance that fosters such cruelty and stupidity in this state. Hail to the Baptists and other newly minted sects of Christianity in Oklahoma-you are quickly gaining ground on Utah as the Ground Zero for craziness and unqualified spokespersons for "progress" in this great nation. At the least, I am proud for them that they have the right to bask in and loudly reiterate their ignorance insomuch as I have the right to call them on it, and to not have to live in such a backwards and hate/fear filled state.
    I miss my friends from there, but don't miss having to live in fear of my safety because I'm from New Jersey, moved to Oklahoma from Wisconsin, I'm Irish-Scottish-English-Canadian heritage, I'm short and out of shape, Jewish and gay. Only if I were a felon would I face tougher challenges in that state. And if I were a felon without being a Northerner, a Jew or Gay, it would be a lot easier for me there, though I still wouldn't want to be there.
    Enough sour grapes, at least the heritage of Native American abuse overwhelms my small gripes. That collar will never be shaken from the State of Oklahoma, and so many other states. But that too is yet another subject for another discussion.
    Maybe gay Native Americans from New jersey............
