  1. No mention of the wonderful hour Melissa Harris-Perry devoted to LGBTQ issues on the first hour of her program yesterday, Sunday morning. You should and link to it if possible. MHP put all the other Sunday talk-fests to shame with her in-depth and informative discussion about marriage equality but also about GLAAD changing it mission statement to include Trans people in the civil rights and equality equation. It was a fantastic hour.

  2. There's a link to part of it in the post above, it's the second paragraph down related to GLAAD - that entire segment was posted.
