Sunday from 2-4 PM at Monte Cello's on Babcock Boulevard, come out to support Allegheny County Council candidate Tom Michalow. This event, sponsored by the Steel City Stonewall Democrats, gives you a chance to meet Tom and learn about his qualifications as well as the reasons LGBT persons from around the region are coalescing around his candidacy.
Here's the Facebook invitation.
I personally think you should try to stop by because this is our community's chance to actually unseat an anti-gay elected official. This is a race where your $20 donation might make all the difference. The northern suburbs may seem miles away, but replacing a Republican opponent with a Democratic ally should be right up your alley.
Tuesday night, another ally, Franco Dok Harris is holding an LGBT fundraiser at 5801 in Shadyside fro 7 – 9 PM. Here's the Facebook invitation.
Dok is a strong supporter of LGBT rights and, as you may know, an Independent Mayoral candidate. Swing by 5801 to say hello and support pro-LGBT candidates. Plus, enjoy what should be a lovely evening on the back deck with friends and acquaintances.
Dok is a great guy. I know it is a work night, but we gottta get ourselves out there to make these relationships early so it doesn't take the next Mayor over a year to get an Advisory Committee up and running.
