Protest HRC: Joe Must Go!

The JOE MUST GO coalition will rally on the National Transgender Day of Remembrance, 6-8 p.m. Tuesday Nov. 20, in Sheridan Square at Christopher Street. The rally honors the transgender heroes who participated in the Stonewall Rebellion and also protests HRC’s betrayal of the transgender community, as HRC will be hosting a networking event at the Stonewall Bar across the street.

Joe Solmonese is the head of the Human Rights Campaign. An op-ed article by Jon Winkleman, the organizer of this rally, in the NY Blade, explains all this.

I'm going to be there. Join me!

● Somehow, my apartment seems quieter when my wife is away for a few days, even compared to when she is out for just a few hours.

● I see my friend Clover Honey has a picture of me in my Halloween costume (Tracy Turnblad from Hairspray) on her blog.

● There is an excellent summary of what happened with ENDA, and HRC's role in it, in an (I think) op-ed piece by Paul Schindler in the Gay City News.
