HAPPY NATIONAL COMING OUT DAY! This year marks the 20th Anniversary of the unveiling of the Aids Quilt and it was the 2nd anniversary of the Gay Pride March on Washington. 20 years go the President, guided by Jerry Falwell, may he rot in hell, did jack shit about aids. Being gay during this time meant fighting for your life, those of your loved one's and for the future. We must respect, and give thanks to those who gave us a voice, who fought the goverment to make right. To quote Ani Difranco " I am indebted joyfully to all the people throughout its history who have fought the government to make right where so many cunning sons and daughters our foremothers and forefathers came singing through slaughter came through hell and high water so that we could stand here and behold breathlessly the sight how a raging river of tears is cutting a grand canyon of light" Happy coming out day, be proud, be supportive, accept those around you who are different and don't ever let anyone tear you down because you are different. We have a long way to go before we are truly equal, don't forget that!
