In honor of DC's National Equality March (NEM) weekend in our great Nation's Capitol, Ameriqueer is going 100% NEM! Starting tomorrow I will be live-blogging/tweeting the events of the weekend direct to you on Ameriqueer, Bilerico and iQreporter. Follow @Ameriqueer's twitter to see up to the second updates, pictures and video. Be part of the conversation--comment here on the AMERIQUEER blog while I liveblog, and I will be able to pose YOUR questions and add YOUR comments in at the events.

The events I am definitely attending are:

  • GLAAD Media training
  • Camp Courage
  • The Struggle for Freedom
ActOnPrinciples Strategy Breakfast
National Equality March
National Equality Rally

Other events I'd like to attend if time/travel permits:
  • Homo Hotel Happy Hour

  • SoulForce Training
  • ABCs of Full Equality
  • Marriage Equality Network Mixer
  • AIDS/HIV Rally Vigil
  • Town Dancebotique Tea Dance
  • (IF I'M ABLE TO GET IN) Human Rights Campaign Gala w/ President Obama
I also intend on attending the yet to be determined 'blogger' event sometime this weekend.

If you can't get to DC this weekend, but you want to be involved, watch Ameriqueer and especially Ameriqueer's twitter feed. Comment RIGHT HERE on Ameriqueer's blog for real time interaction with us there at the march!

Let's make this movement INTERACTIVE! I'm YOUR eyes, ears and VOICE in DC!

Happy National Coming Out Day, and Happy Equality Weekend!

Help us get the nations' eyes on DC! Tack #NEM on all LGBT activism related tweets--we're fighting for our lives!

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."

Can we trust Rasmussen anymore?


Happy Hour Roundup will be coming late today. Fortunately, there is lots of news to report on! Unfortunately, there will be no time for me to collect it and send it. Expect it between 5pm and 6pm!
