Five Year Anniversary of a Public Hearing Should Generate More Activism in Pennsylvania

Franco Harris Pittsburgh

Tell us about a time when everything actually turned out exactly as you’d hoped. Five years ago today, Allegheny County Council held a public hearing on a non-discrimination ordinance which included sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression. You can read 78 pages of public testimony here. Some of it is brilliant, some of it […]

Letter to the Editor: Chick-fil-A Is Where We Took Our Stand

ChickFilaA_Facebook-final

Seriously, I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry when I read this in the Post-Gazette letters to the editor: The people of this region spoke loud and clear of how they feel about gay marriage when we supported Chick-fil-A and stood in line for hours and wrapped around the building several times. The people […]

Don’t Put the Cart Before the Horse Just Yet

Two huge national stories are almost sort of kind of breaking. Chick-fil-A has promised not to fund hate with their corporate profit. The Boy Scouts might stop requiring discrimination based on sexual orientation – it will be optional.  I am not being a smartass. I’m being deliberately skeptical because both of these organizations have stepped […]

“Kill the Gays” Bill Faces Imminent Vote in Uganda

uganda-5

Uganda’s much promised “Kill the Gays” bill has made its way on to the legislative agenda with the sponsor urging the legislative body to pass this bill as a “Christmas gift” to the nation.  The law will broaden the criminalization of same-sex relationships by dividing homosexuality into two categories; aggravated homosexuality and the offense of […]

The Chick-fil-A Post

The Chick-fil-A Post

Over a two year period, Chick-fil-A donated $5 million to organizations that have clear-cut anti-gay agendas and/or promote and honor individuals who are avowedly anti-gay by honoring them with awards, etc. Let’s be clear. These organizations have anti-gay agendas. They lobby against our rights – they fight hate crimes bills, they fight bullying programs, they […]

Chick-Fil-A Spoof

Chick-Fil-A Spoof

This is hysterical … pretty much offends everyone. “Someday someone’s gonna make you wanna gobble up a  waffle fry but Chick-Fil-A say you make the Baby Jesus cry”  

NYU Freshman Takes on Chick-Fil-A

NYU Freshman Takes on Chick-Fil-A

This young woman takes NYU to task for hosting an openly anti-gay corporation (Chick-Fil-A) on their campus while purporting to be pro-diversity. Can’t have it both ways. But my FAVORITE thing is this excerpt from the press release: Within a few days of launching her campaign, Dworkoski had recruited hundreds of supporters on Change.org, the world’s fastest growing […]

Chick-Fil-A = Girl on Girl Sex?

Chick-Fil-A = Girl on Girl Sex?

I have to give credit to Leslie Fleisher for busting out this bucket of Santorum when the latest news on Chick-Fil-A hit social media. Go Facebook … I think the fan page will be up soon. It could be a thing. She specifically references to tribadism. Yes, if you don’t know what that is … you […]
