Equality Roundup: LA, OC, GOP, JLAC and Other Acronyms
We can’t wait for the Los Angeles Equality Awards on Saturday. We’ve got Jonathan Capeheart of the Washington Post, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Grammy-winning singer Thelma Houston. A few tickets are still available.
Over the weekend, we rocked OC Pride and brought in around 300 postcards to end harmful Sexual Orientation Change Efforts and raised almost $2000!
On Friday, the Joint Legislative Audit Committee approved our request for an audit of schools to protect students.
Romney finally picked a running mate, Representative Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) and gay conservatives praised the pick based on the fact that Ryan once voted for ENDA. And while Daily Kos points out that vote wasn’t even that great, with the HRC pointing out every other vote he’s ever taken is against equality, it’s hard to take GOProud and the Log Cabin too seriously.
We’re honoring the Reverend Canon Albert Ogle at the San Diego Equality Awards later this month, and he’s tough but fair, calling upon Equality California to expand its focus into providing more protection for binational couples and to embrace a message of faith in equality.
