Do You Have The Right To Serve?



This is a great, amazing thing that's being done. Reminds me of the civil rights sit-ins of old...THEY REALLY NEED HELP SO GIVE THEM A CALL! Please forward this amazing volunteer opportunity onto as many people that you can. - LOVE YA, FAITH

This fall openly gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender young adults who are willing to serve will attempt to enlist in the military in thirty cities across the country. When their desire to serve is rejected, young adults will sit-in at the recruitment centers. Each city will have its own schedule and demands. In all, over 1000 young adults across the country - LGBT and heterosexual, Christian and non-Christian - will sit down in the fight for equality.

we have no idea what the day will look like, and it may end much
earlier or later, but plan on 4pm and you can decide what to do from
there)

It is in a plaza in front of the Hollywood Entertainment Museum
and the Knitting Factory Club where we can gather, talk about the day,
prepare, and then move to the Armed Forces Career Center a half block
down around 10:30 or 10:45am.

**For parking for the day, there is metered parking on the streets and
two parking garages off of sycamore one behind Longs (north on
sycamore off Hollywood) and one half a block down Sycamore Ave. I
recommend Carpooling! If you don't have a ride, let me know and we'll
figure it out. I also recommend public transportation if you are close
to it, the Hollywood/Highland stop off the Red Line Metro is very
close to our recruitment center.


**If you are planning on being arrested please email me with your
contact information, address, drivers license number, emergency
numbers

I will continue to keep you updated on any important information you
will need to know for Tuesday.

Peace and peace,

Bi History Moments: Anything That Moves, Spring 1994 (bisexual manifesto and cover)

Anything That Moves was a literary, journalistic, and topical magazine published in the United States from 1990 to 2002.[1] It was created as an expansion of the San FranciscoBay Area Bisexual Network (BABN) newsletter by BABN member, Karla Rossi, in collaboration with bisexual and bi-friendly editors, writers, and artists to become a full 64-page magazine with an international subscriber base.

No Apologies for Queer White Tears By Faith Cheltenham Delivered as a keynote address to the 2016 BlaQOUT Conference at UC Riverside on April 9th, 2016.
Black girl drinking White People Tears Gif White tears is a term that has a startling effect on white folks. Developed over time to describe the phenomenon of white people being upset at the very act of discussing race, it’s evolved into a funny yet, extremely effective way to describe white people’s discomfort in discussing the very racism they perpetuate.
