**************************************

Barney Frank is not the most popular gay legislators due to his role in stripping protections based on gender identity and gender presentation from the Employment Non Discrimination Act (ENDA).  His version of the bill is opposed by just about every national LGBTQ organization, but he perseveres.  Why?  He argues that ENDA light is better than no ENDA at all.  I don't understand how he so blithely sacrifice so many members of our community. 

But I would go to see him speak.  Except that I have to work and then attend the birthday of a lovely four year old girl who has no problem whatsoever hanging out with lesbian grownups.  That's pretty restorative.
