Op-ed: The religious people ARE with us

I get asked a lot by progressive friends, who know my long involvement in the fight for marriage equality, “How are we going to beat the church folk?” Here’s the thing: The “church folk” are with us.

Op-ed: DOMA, the First Battle in the Immigration War

Equality Federation's executive director writes, "We are still fighting for all 11 million undocumented immigrants, including at least 267,000 LGBT immigrants.

Senate committee to vote on ENDA on July 10th

Building off momentum from major decisions at the Supreme Court in favor of marriage equality, a Senate committee is set to hold a vote July 10 on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, the Washington Blade has learned.

The Senate Health, Education, Labor & Pensions Committee has scheduled the markup for the LGBT job anti-bias legislation two weeks to the day that the Supreme Court ruled against the Defense of Marriage Act and California’s Proposition 8.
