Remember who? Why? How would anyone know?

Okay, I'm a bit annoyed. More than annoyed. Novemeber 20th is supposed to be the Day Of Rememberance, the GBLT Day Of Remembrance.

GBLT people all over the country coming together, honoring people who have been lost, not forgetting what has happened before. Great idea, wonderful idea, one I fully suport in everyway I can. Every year that I've known about it I've gone.

Except this year.

Why? Because I couldn't find a DOR event I could get to. I searched for weeks, and then, found an event couple of towns over from mine. Great, I finally figured out when and where it...

...was! Three days before.

ENDA died a terrible death because of a lack of knowledge, education and community. Communications is the cornerstone of all three of the above concepts, and the community just doesn't have any going on. Publishing days and locations AFTER they have already happened is like Joe Solomese going on for years about how only an inclusive ENDA will be supported. The SECOND the knucklheads inside the beltway decided to throw a curve, Joe and the HRC Political Action Committe sold out anyone who's gender wasn't perfectly binary and basically told everyone that in the grand scheme of political grand standing, everyone was expendable. So much for an inclusive bill...

Thanks Joe and the HRC. Thanks for telling me I'm unimportant compared to your own political agenda!
