If you are in the Chicago area and care about justice and equality for the LGBTQIA community, please consider joining us at the OutJustice offices on Sunday nights (or a Sunday now and then!). We network, work on projects both big and small, and we build our support for survivors of violence and discrimination both here and nationally. You are invited and we need you.
Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. After years of suffering under bigoted laws, now the government wishes to be further assholes? No, U.S. Gov. Fix what you’ve done and be the “bigger person” (but recognize you’ve not been bigger by just doing what’s right to do – supporting Chelsea Manning). Thank you. Photo credit: Umpqua.

Yes, I had some things to say about Russia’s leadership. OutJustice is my outlet for that type of commentary.
Russia has a law criminalizing “propaganda” that shows LGBTQIA persons in a positive light. Anyone who participates in “gayness,” or says it’s pretty OK in some way (so to speak) is to be shut down. Violence? Sure, why not. Go ahead.
