Clinton Visits Stonewall Democrats


"...Clinton promised to extend benefits to all same-sex couples who work for the federal government with an executive order, end "don't ask, don't tell" and use the bully pulpit to advocate for a fully inclusive ENDA and a fully inclusive hate-crimes bill.

Clinton also discussed how adamant she is about allowing everyone in America to adopt children if they are a qualified couple. "It was like she was indignant," Teresa Herrin of Houston's Stonewall chapter said of Clinton's manner while talking about same-sex couples' adoption rights. "Her voice just really changed, and that was the part that surprised us -- her passion..."

That Obama declined last minute doesn't surprise me,
as a blaQue queer I'm still upset with him for the McClurkin fiasco.


Our Dear Donnie


BlaQues have been fighting the insidious molestation=gay=ex-gay stereotypes for many years, especially in our churches. It's always seemed to me that Clinton has the best record if one was going to vote strictly on LGBT rights, as I often do.


I don't like "don't ask, don't tell" but at the time it was revolutionary, and decreased serious persecution of our people; imagine, just as awareness of the AIDS crisis was finally emerging, a small political masterstroke of the gays AND Clintons got gay safety & discrimination issues on the table. I might remind you of President Johnson marshaling through the Civil Rights Act on the back of a beloved dead President, whose previous champion was actually quite slight when all things were considered. For now I'll remain a Clinton supporter. She has a passion for LGBT rights, not just an interest in "maintaining" the gay vote!

Dont Click Unless You Have To, HERE LIE EVILDOERS
, The Family Research Institute of lovely Colorado Springs. I love how they source their material, footnotes all linking back to a tiny image box of citations. Most prevalent? Psychological Reports! A paid psych journal? Some people are truly stupid, yet there are even stupider people who listen to them.

Additionally according to University of California Davis, they are full of shit.

What is to be thought of a nation boasting of its liberty, boasting of its humanity, boasting of its Christianity, boasting of its love of justice and purity, and yet having within its own borders three millions of persons denied by law the right of marriage?—what must be the condition of that people? - Frederick Douglass

STATEMENT BY THEFAYTH ABOUT THE BISEXUAL COMMUNITY

STATEMENT BY THEFAYTH ABOUT THE BISEXUAL COMMUNITY

By thefayth, BiNet USA President
With additional edits/support from Juba Kalamka, BiNet USA VP

Bisexual communities have been notified of my intent to remove my networks, support and help from those who center white supremacy or practice trans exclusionary radical feminism. Simply put, I do not believe bisexual exclusionary communities (or beci's) to represent the bisexual community.

When I emailed, messaged and tweeted at "Jayne Shea" and messaged her last Tuesday, I did so because I'd seen Seattle continuing to thrive with TERF's, or people who exclude trans people.

It occurred to me, that the same group reported to BiNet USA for allowing cis only women was possibly closely associated with Jayne Shea; this has now been confirmed. And now the rest is history, Black-bisexual-intersex-trans history as I, thefayth, recently became more public in my transition from assumed cis female to known intersex trans multi-gender…

No, I didn’t attempt to steal the bisexual pride flag

No, I didn’t attempt to steal the bisexual pride flag
(but people I knew said I did, so did "the news")
By the artist formerly known as Faith Cheltenham, and the activist formerly known as thefayth

With my stepping away from bisexual community; I am returning home to those who love me; not something always found in bisexual, or LGBTQIA communities. The true upheaval for me personally is most profound in that I turn away from the concept of giving, entirely. thefayth is no more as I must admit I have no faith in humans, if I ever did. Further, I decline to serve with my body, my mind or spirit to provide such faith to humans without benefit to me first and always.

My bigger shame? Direct donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to advocacy between 2004-2017 focused on bi communities worldwide, while also working for free at same time; I should have picked one or the other!

My shame is particular, in that I feel, I may have been treated better if I’d been giving only to peopl…

DEATH OF KHALIL LAWAL BY PHILLY COP JAMES POWELL 

PHOTO OF KHALIL FROM www.socialistalternativephl.org
On January 29th, 2018, after accidentally hitting a pedestrian, Khalil Lawal was approached by Philadelphia Police Officer James Powell—who was off duty at the time—and shot 15 times mere seconds after the encounter. James Powell shot Khalil first at point blank range and then several more times as Khalil was already laid on the ground.

Khalil was unarmed and had not been committing any crimes when Powell approached him from behind with his gun already in hand. Khalil was shot directly in his left eye, his temple, his neck, chest and legs but succumbed to his injuries almost 2 hours after the incident.

In April, the Lawal family discovered that the Philadelphia Police Dept. still had not taken a statement from Powell—about 3 months following the s…
