Town hall tackles gay-rights issues | Denver Post

I'm not really sure who they'd be quoting here... we held plenty of LGBT-issues Town Halls in Mt. Pleasant, MI back in the day, and I didn't think we were breaking any new ground...:
"Gay-rights activists in Denver held what they called the nation's first gay town-hall meeting, led Saturday night by U.S. Rep. Jared Polis, a Democrat from Boulder. The open forum, at the Metropolitan Church of the Rockies in Denver, was to cover issues related to gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender individuals, including the military's 'don't ask, don't tell' ban on gay service members, federal hate-crime legislation and job discrimination.

'I know there are a lot of people in the LGBT community (who) have been frustrated with the pace of progress,' Polis said. 'President Obama promised a lot during the campaign. (He's) been a little bit slow to deliver.'"

Either way, good for Denver and good for my main man, Rep. Polis!

Did you know one of my first EVER posts on this blog was about Rep. (then candidate) Polis? Oh how time flies!
