Sundays of Solidarity [30 Mar 2009|01:50pm]

queerunity
Between May 17 and June 28, 2009, groups of LGBT and allied people around the country will attend worship services at a church of their choice - a church that is not welcoming and affirming of openly LGBT members and guests. Each group will wear a lapel button that reads "gay? fine by me." For less formal churches we also have a t-shirt with this message. The lapel button (or t-shirt) serves as a conversation starter - opening dialogue with people in the church about faith, sexual orientation, and gender identity.

When that visible act of courage is paired with adequate training, then transforming hearts and minds becomes a bona fide possibility. That's why we've designed a three-part teleconference course and a resource webpage that covers the essentials of Nonviolent communication, Media talking points, and What both the Bible and science really say about homosexuality. Training teleconferences will be held on April 19, April 26, and May 3 at 4pm CST. To register for the trainings go to http://www.soulforce.org/moodle/login/index.php and enter your information.

We hope you will consider organizing a Sundays of Solidarity project in your area. It simply involves choosing a church in your area that could benefit from an SOS visit, using your contact list to recruit others to join you, attending the teleconference training sessions, and then organizing your group to take action on one of the Sundays between May 17 and June 28, 2009. To purchase a lapel button or t-shirt, please visit http://finebyme.org/sos.html.

Signal boost: God Hates Them What Hate the Gays [27 Feb 2009|12:15pm]

mdm_sosostris
Thought this might be of interest.

---------------------------------

Cambridge Rindge and Latin has one of the oldest high school Gay-Straight Alliances in the country. Fred Phelps, of "God Hates Fags" protesting and internet fame, dislikes this. You remember Fred Phelps, right?


Yeah, that Fred Phelps. He'll be at the school on 13 March, expressing his displeasure.

Project 10 East, the GSA in question, and Driving Equality are hosting a Phelps-a-thon in response. They're taking pledges for every minute Phelps is on their sidewalk. The money goes to Project 10 East, to help make Cambridge Rindge and Latin a more welcoming place for queer students. And Fred Phelps gets a thank you card for the donation. Good deal.

Donate here, if you have the means. And if not, please pass the word along.

Remember, god is our best fag. Xe'd want you to pass along your pennies.

I'm looking to hand this community off to somebody else, since I don't use LJ anymore. Any volunteers? If nobody is interested, it will be deleted at the end of the week. Thanks! :)

Did Obama Team Play us On Bishop Robinson? [19 Jan 2009|01:21pm]

queerunity
During the inauguration kick off party at the Lincoln Memorial, openly gay Bishop Gene Robinson of the Diocese of NH gave the opening prayer.

The problem is it was not televised by HBO or NPR and there were 'technical difficulties' making it nearly impossible for the crowd of 500,000 to hear a word.

Demand to know why Bishop Robinson was part of the "pre-show" and therefore not taped.

Diversity Lesson 101: LGBT/Queer Little People [23 Dec 2008|12:41pm]

queerunity
Little People like LGBT people are considered "freaks of nature", they get stares and people misunderstand them. In looking for resources for Little LGBT People, I found virtually nothing. I decided, to make an entry to educate people about little people as well as provide as much info as I can for LGBT Little People. It is my sincere hope that LGBT Little People can find solace, comfort and community and that they can begin to network and build a foundation and support system for their own sub-section of the community.

For more info and resources on LGBT Little People, check out:

FEED episode 10 "The Family Problem"....violent and intense subject matter [08 Nov 2008|12:17pm]

burnandshiver
This episode of FEED picks up with Maura (Amanda Deibert) stuck under the table inside the restaurant witnessing the attack on Tara (Erin Kelly) with her camera, and Mike (Daniel Miller) trying to figure out what to do.

Again...violent and intense subject matter.




As always, we'd love to hear your feedback on www.feedseries.tv or if you are an AFTER ELLEN member at http://www.afterellen.com/blog/trishbendix/video-feed-10
