The current bickering over the fate of gay and lesbian couples who have one foreign-born partner compared to the basic human needs of thousands of LGBT people is distasteful and unseemly. By pitting the two groups against each other, we look petty and overwhelmingly biased against the poor and most vulnerable if we insist on the explicit inclusion of a very small subset of our community instead.
Binational gay and lesbian couples have very real problems that need an immediate solution. Threatening to jeopardize relief for thousands of less fortunate queers isn't it.
