Sounds like a fantastic educational opportunity. I would be particularly interested to know when the Federal Hate Crimes law actually applies. Seems we've had lots of trouble getting the Feds involved in prior cases - like that of Troy Clattenberg Martinez (San Antonio) - even when local officials refused to review hate crime charges initially --- or at least until pressed into a corner by community members and Troy's admirable family.

After the insult-fest by right wingers had seemingly come to a close, a spokesperson for some church who disagreed with healthcare benefits for gays asked the mayor and council: "What is more dangerous, riding a motorcycle without a helmet, or riding someone bareback?" R-E-S-P-E-C-T, where's Aretha!?

With the GOP's war on women and attacks of LGBT people, racial minorities, immigrants, non-Christians, etc., I can't help but wonder who it is that the GOP doesn't want to go to war with.

Last year, my husband and I exchanged vows during this event. It saddens me that the minister who performed the ceremony is so intolerant. I would have loved an affirming celebration - but there is obviously a lot more work today to get us equal!

I can't believe the words that came out of his mouth during and after the ceremony when he was interviewed.

My latest post at The New Civil Rights Movement - man I do love Texas activists.
A small Texas town’s schools with a high incident of bullying against LGBT youth were chalked with pro-LGBT and anti-bullying messages by unknown activists.

Almost all prepared for all of the Transgender Day of Remembrance events in San Antonio this week and weekend. Now... let's hope the weather forecast remains unchanged for Sunday night so I'm not spending the night on the streets in subzero temperatures or rain... I'll still do it, but I won't be happy about it. Join me!

More talk today at San Antonio City Council about gay sex - funny how the right sexualizes health care... still reeling over the supposed "minister" talking about barebacking.

The right wing gave two primary arguments tonight against Domestic Partnership benefits for San Antonio employees: (1) that gay people have AIDS and taxpayers shouldn't have to pay for it, and (2) Jesus would discriminate.
