Editor's Note: We bumped this back up to make sure everyone got involved in Bilerico-Florida!

Get out your sunscreen and flip-flops, Projectors! The Bilerico Project is heading to the Sunshine State of Florida! We are happy to now offer LGBTQ Floridians and their allies a place to read about queer news, politics, culture, and life- Bilerico-Florida!

new_gay_florida_nvy9.gifFlorida is an important battleground state and it's high time to shine a queer ray of light on the state! With the Presidential elections (and Florida's spotty election history), the upcoming "Marriage Protection" Amendment to the state constitution, history-making out LGBT Candidates running for all levels of office, the continuing fight for trans-rights, and much more, Florida is a place to watch for the entire LGBT community!

Right now on Bilerico-Florida, we have an exclusive interview with Steve Hildebrand, the Deputy Campaign Manager for the Obama Campaign and the highest ranking gay staffer for the campaign. We talk about everything from LGBT voter outreach to Anti-Gay Marriage Amendments to a fully-inclusive ENDA. You don't want to miss it! And, of course, what kind of Bilerico launch wouldn't have contests to give away lots of cool queer stuff?

Be sure to come on over, say hello, and get involved in the discussion! There is a lot of great new content and amazing new contributors you won't find on TBP, so even if you don't live in Florida there is something for you! Be sure to sign up for our RSS feed or get the daily digest delivered directly into your inbox so you don't miss a thing!

You can also add us as a friend on MySpace and join our FaceBook group! So spread the word, send us suggestions and news stories, and become part of the Bilerico-Florida family!

Our absentee ballots are in the mail to good old Palm Beach county. Home of the famous dangling and pregnant chad of old. Ah, the good old days, may they never come back!

Congratulations on getting your own Bilerico blog, Waymon! I can't think of anyone else I'd rather have leading the Florida site! :)

Thanks for giving me the chance!

And thanks for giving LGBT Floridians (and their friends around the country) a space to talk about important issues (and give away free stuff- LOL)
