To My Black Union Friends


If you don't read "Pam's House Blend" you should. Pam is one of the best bloggers on LGBT issues who happens to be African-American. Or is it the other way around? I know she brings a perspective that has helped me to make connections form an experience that is one I will never know. Gee why am I thinking of Judge Sotomajor?

Anyway, here's one on a new coalition. About time!

Jordan/Rustin and Marriage Equality

An LGBT march is being planned for October in Washington for LGBT rights. As I recall a gay African American was instrumental in planning a march on Washington that lead to "I have a dream." Bayard Rustin did that with the support of Unions and the faith community. Unfortunately he ended up not attending that march. Long story.

Is it time to pay it forward?
