I just realized something. How and when did DOMA and DADT become the main gay issues?
I was trying to figure it out and I don't remember seeing the heighten build up.
However, my point of this piece is to ask...Are they the ones we push first?
I hope that's not an evil thing to say, but I think there are other issues we should fight for just as much.
- Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Prevention Act
- ENDA or Employment Non-Discrimination Act including protections for our Trans-family
- Healthcare-mostly HIV and AIDS research and treatment (this truly affects our community)
- Military Readiness Enhancement Act-a policy of nondiscrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.
I would love hear your thoughts on this...Am I way off here?
