Denver... you have to love a city where they don't run you down when you're in the crosswalk. And everyone is actually in the crosswalk.
Strange for a Bostonian to see.
The community continues to digest the Prop 8 loss. Sure, people are talking about AZ and FL, but the focus is on California. What went wrong? How could we have lost? Will we ever win a ballot question or are we destined to lose them forever?
The most productive statement came from Nadine Smith, of Equality Florida. We must, she said, be out on every form, every moment, of every waking day. If we travel, we fill out forms as married people. If we file taxes? We file as married people. When ever, where ever we can, we must identify ourselves.
It's Harvey Milk's message. It continues to be relevant.
It is an act of non-violent civil disobedience. We must refuse to be considered single when we are families.
There is still a level of finger pointing going on that makes me very uncomfortable. I don't see the point. Positive messages, like Ms. Smith's, is where we need to focus our energy.
Let's move forward, folks.
