For those of you who are feeling pessimistic about the possibility of achieving full equality for LGBT people, I present Jason McElway:

Jason's story is not about LGBT issues, but his amazing story shows what can happen with when we are open, honest and hold true to our beliefs.

Our cause is just and time is on our side. It is up to each of us to claim our truth and show the world who and what we are.

As guest blogger Travis Ballie said, "We are all Harvey Milks now."

It really is incredible how you ignore the fact that this was not important to you one month ago.

Now that Obama won are you ready to wear your gay hat and come out of the shadows?

Is is safe now? Is there less risk of embarrassing your candidate?

Wow Patrick. It is amazing how your cynicism stays intact even after watching this incredible video.

BTW, I don't have to wear a "gay hat" to be committed to LGBT equality or to even feel gay. That's something that just comes naturally.

Obama wasn't shy or embarrassed to speak in favor of LGBT civil rights and neither am I.

Michael, I thought the story was great. You just never know when inspiration will pop up. Thanks for keepinng an eye out.

The coach sould ahve been playing him all season and in every game.

OMG, why do you make me cry this early in the morning, Michael. That was sooo fucking sweet.

I hope he plays in every game now.
