(March 2006) I'm catching up on the news and, as usual, sampling it.
Seems that Idaho activists recently fanned out across downtown Boise to attach small white Heterosexuals Only signs to every bench and fountain and doorway and statehouse bathroom they could find.
This action coincided with the forty-first anniversary of the Bloody Sunday march in Selma.
Amazing how time advances yet bigotry stands still, isn’t it (and how some folks use religion to justify it in both cases)?
Elsewhere in these united states, the good folks of Burlington VT—oh to ride my Bike around Lake Champlain again!—elected to name a nearby peak Brokeback Mountain.
And elsewhere Jerry Falwell had the Soulforce Equality Riders arrested when they stepped onto Liberty University property. But, in a move that makes perfect sense to my Alabama-bred pal Tuscaloosa and this escaped-from-the-Baptists grrrl, Liberty U students greeted the queer riders with cookies.
And farther south, five Savannah soldiers taunted and severely beat a gay man.
These soldiers are members of the Third Infantry Division at Fort Stewart—the same place where an artist pal’s cross-dressing young stepson is now stationed.
Gawd do I hope the boy’s discreet!
