Indiana passes anti-LGBT legislation

discriminationIndiana’s State House earlier today approved the nation’s most anti-LGBT legislation.  According to the IndyStar, similar legislation was passed by the State Senate and Indiana’s Governor has said he intends to sign this into law – all under the guise of protecting religious freedom.  The legislation is modeled on a 22-year old federal law known as the Religious Freedom and Restoration Act. You may recall this act because it was what the US Supreme Court cited in allowing Hobby Lobby to opt out of the Affordable Care Act requirement that they cover contraceptives.

This sort of thing really ticks me off because I get so frustrated having these discussions over and over again. Legally barring a group from a business has haunting parallels to the civil rights struggles from the 1950s and 1960s not to mention more recent legislation organizations like GLAD, HRC and others have overturned in the courts for our community.

Shame on you Indiana – and shame on Indianans.  You may not agree with your state government but this is your home and your home makes me sick.

#RingYourGranny for Marriage Equality

The 1980s Queer activist group Act Up was the first to slap “Silence = Death” stickers all over Boston.  While we’ve thankfully moved beyond those times, the basic premise remains true. LGBT issues become more acceptable when they are openly discussed so I applaud the #RingYourGranny campaign in Ireland.

On May 22nd, Ireland will vote on the Marriage Equality referendum, deciding whether or not same-sex couples can get legally married there.  I’m posting this to voice my support and to ask anyone who might have relatives in Ireland to call them and ask them how they plan to vote.  Sometimes all it takes is the courage to speak up.
