"Gay and lesbian couples are legally marrying in California. Many more are planning weddings and celebrations."

Your website could read instead:

Lesbian, Gay Bisexual and Transgender couples are legally marrying in California. Many more are planning weddings and celebrations.
OR
LGBT couples are legally marrying in California. Many more are planning weddings and celebrations.
OR
Same sex couples are legally marrying in California. Many more are planning weddings and celebrations.

Bisexuals are up in arms, and such transparent biphobia only hurts the fight!

THIS IS WHAT I BELIEVE: "Bisexuals who married same sex partners in California, Massachusetts, New York, or Belgium, the Netherlands or Canada have a distinct perspective on marriage equality. It's not who you love that's important, but how you love and that you love, and are loved in return. All the ways we make families and intimate connection are important and all are equally valuable and worthy of societal support. - Dr. Loraine Hutchins

IS THIS WHAT EQUALITYFORALL.COM BELIEVES?
As with gays and lesbian marriages, bi-sexuals would base their claim on the fact that they are people with a minority sexual orientation who wish to "live out their love(s)" and gain the social recognition of their relationships that they have been denied historically. Like gay and lesbian liaisons, the argument could be that failure to recognized bi-sexual relationships is due to stereotypical treatment causing historical disadvantaged. If it is good for gays and lesbians to be able to marry in accordance with their sexual orientation and procreation no longer provides an adequate argument for restricting marriage to heterosexuals, as courts in Canada have recently ruled, then this must also be so for bi-sexuals. A move to accept bi-sexual marriage, however, means that marriage cannot be limited to merely two people for what is bi-sexuality but the sexual love for both sexes? - Catholic Educational Resource

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. The complete title of the magazine, Anything That Moves: Beyond the Myths of Bisexuality, was purposely chosen for its controversial nature, while its tag line indicated a clear intent to challenge stereotypes of bisexual identities and behaviors. The magazine took its name from the stereotype depicting bisexuals as willing to have sex with "anything that moves".[2] The magazine's mission was to confront and redefine concepts of sexuality and gender, to defy stereotypes and broad definitions of bisexuals and to combat biphobia. - Wikipedia

The Memorist That's Me!

Just call me the memoirist.
People often say they remember me.
And I can't forget sh**, and just filled out a new HSAM research request UCI had sent me, so...

Reality for me? Just temporarily misplacing, or actively trying to forget, more things than the rest of humanity, and nonetheless it just comes back screaming to life over and over again like Groundhog Day (the movie remains a small personal comfort).

But. Living with hyperthymesia is fine, useful even. I hunt those oppression would use with it some days, on others I work on sharing a new sys with the public featuring my library of screenshots, and those like mine for my various cases in a new and innovative way. Partly book, partly website, all me. A lot of white people need to read themselves NOW I think, what they said THEN, ya know?

For the last year and half, I've also been working with a therapist who's diagnosed me with hyperthymesia. Which has led to realization after realization and I'…

NYC in support for the Malaysian LGBT community following recent violent hate attacks

FROM THEFAYTH'S MAILBAG, A NOTE FROM LGBTQ MALAYSIA

"Since last Thursday, September 27th, for three consecutive days, the streets of NY were painted in pink as a sign of support and solidarity with the LGBT community in Malaysia, as many supporters and protesters gathered in front of Malaysia's Prime Minister, Dr. Mahathir Mohamad's hotel who was in NYC for the United Nations General Assembly.
Behind this initiative and the protest is a group of former Malaysians, volunteers and activists based in NYC, who felt that as the hate campaigns against the LGBT community are raging through Malaysia, the only hope left for the members of that community is to turn to the West and ask for its support in their struggle.

3rd day that the streets of NY in front of Dr. Mahathir’s hotel were painted in pink as a sign of support and solidarity with the LGBTQ community in Malaysia that is under #unacceptable violent attack after he declared that Malaysia will not accept their rights…
