For the girl who has everything...

OK, so I'm turning 25 again this year, but Facebook's Cause application won't let me lie... SO, while I'd rather you donate $25 to my cause in honor of my birthday... the only increment I'm allowed to suggest you donate is 27. Please don't ask me what 27 means... it hurts far too bad. And you'll figure it out.

As you may know, LGBT youth are 4x more likely to attempt and succeed at suicide. They are also far more likely to be homeless, be rejected by their peers, drop out of high school, abuse drugs or alcohol, be disowned by their families, and miss out on opportunities to better themselves. Instead of getting me a $500 Williams Sonoma gift certificate or a new Mac Book Air; in honor of my birthday, please make a donation to NYAC to help expand programs that give LGBT youth the support to survive AND thrive!

If you want to send the Mac Book or the gift certificate TOO, I certainly wouldn't be opposed!

Hey, I survived being young, out and gay in High School, and many of you did too. Regardless of what your experience was like, we need to make things better for today's young people. Please give what you can to NYAC. Follow the link bellow to make the donation in my name.

Thank you in advance for supporting this cause--you've given me more by supporting than you ever could have if you had bought me anything!

TOAST TO LGBT YOUTH EVERYWHERE!

Congratulations, Phil! :-D

As someone who just celebrated his fourth 25th birthday, I can commiserate with you :-)

Love the idea of a birthday gift to an LGBT organization. Would it be okay if we donated to Equality Maine?

yours,

Joe

Actually I would really appreciate that. Remember that list of top 10 races I was going to do? I've spoken with almost every campaign, and the initial post will go live today and will run for the week in 5 parts: today list of the 10, tomorrow detailed information about 10-7, wed details on 6-4, thurs details about 3-1 and Friday run a Bilerico post aiming to get folks to the list to donate.

...and the PURPOSE of me telling you all of that is that MAINE is NUMBER ONE on the list!

Chris Geidner: In Iowa, judges are ousted.

Via Chris Geidner's Poliglot blog at Metro Weekly:

"

In Iowa, which declared Iowa's marriage ban unconstitutional under the state's constitution in 2009, the National Organization for Marriage got one of its first electoral victories this year. The judicial retention elections appear to have resulted in the replacement of all three justices up for a vote this year.

Here, as of 3:35 a.m. and with 1767 out of 1774 precincts reporting, are the Iowa Secretary of State's election results:

Supreme Court Justice David L. Baker
Yes 443437 45.75%
No 525865 54.25%

Supreme Court Justice Michael J. Streit
Yes 442459 45.6%
No 527921 54.4%

Supreme Court Chief Justice Marsha Ternus
Yes 437118 44.99%
No 534486 55.01%

The court was unanimous in its 2009 ruling that Iowa's constitution required marriage equality."

HEY #p2!--CALLING ALL PROGRESSIVE ALLIES!

-HEY #p2! (Progressives).

We can't do this alone.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans have been fighting for over half a Century to have basic Civil Rights. We have so much to do, and we are such a small group. Without an army of Progressive allies, we can't win. Our rights as American citizens are constantly being compromised, despite life-time service to our nation as good, contributing citizens. We can't wait any longer. We need our Progressive allies to step up and go to bat for us TODAY.

We must demand Progressives have got to make LGBT rights a top priority in 2010, or we will keep being put on the back-burner.

There will ALWAYS be something more important than LGBT equality affecting America--issues like Health Care Reform and the Economy effect LGBT people too! However, when we are discriminated against under the law every single day, we can't give our all to fixing these problems. We are long overdue to be counted as equal citizens. That&#…

WHAT. THE. HELL? NEW HAMPSHIRE??? (and a prop 8 update)

Okay, first let me just say CALIFORNIA can breathe easy for a few more days as San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsome convinced the Supreme Court to hold of on releasing their decision on Prop 8 a few more days until the 30th anniversary of the White Night Riots is passed.  We're probably going to see it Tuesday, the following Thursday or THAT following Monday.  
NOW:  WHAT THE HELL, NEW HAMPSHIRE HOUSE?!?!?!?!???!?!?!?!????!
The NEW HAMPSHIRE House, which on May 6 APPROVED Marriage Equality by a vote of 178-167, has now stalled the REWRITTEN BY GOVERNOR JOHN LYNCH bill 188-186--That's right, folks, two votes.  25 members did not vote at all, and opponents of the bill failed to kill it in a 173-202 vote, but this STILL means we're waiting on NEW HAMPSHIRE to GET ITS SHIT TOGETHER!  The House passed a resolution to continue negotiating with the Senate by a vote of 207-168.  If that same number votes for the 're-re-renegotiated' bill in the next two weeks it will pass, but …
