LGBT Obama Supporters Launch New Site

August 19, 2008 at 6:44 am 3 comments

It has been a while since I posted and with good reason. I am working with a group of Obama supporters on the new site LGBT for Obama. The site which is will serve as a hub of information, discussion and activity around the presidential campaign is the brainchild of longtime LGBT activist and Democratic Party donor Terry Bean.

I am blog editor for the site. You will be able to find commentary from some of your favorite bloggers and community activists such as Pam Spaulding, Bil Browning, John Aravosis, Andres Duque and more.

Sign up for the site’s RSS feeds:

• RSS Feed: http://feeds.feedburner.com/LGBTforObama
• Friendfeed: http://friendfeed.com/lgbtforobama

Bloggers for the site will also have frequent updates about all things LGBT from the Democratic Convention next week in Denver when Sen. Obama officially becomes the Democratic nominee for the presidency.

As Terry says in the initial post launching LGBT for Obama

Senator Obama represents authentic change for our community and we must seize the opportunity to have him as our next President. To understand the stakes, all you have to do is look at the last eight wasted years. Instead of leadership we got a President who sabotaged every effort to advance our rights, a President who scapegoated us, a President who used our community as a whipping child to distract the nation from his own incompetence.

If we elect John McCain this fall, the waste will only continue. Just click here to compare McCain’s stances on the issues we care about to Senator Obama’s. The difference between these candidates is as clear as it is profound. With Obama we can get everything we have been working for over the past three decades, while with McCain we may get none of it.

    Michael,

    GMTA? How funny!

    I’ve had this new LGBT site on my blogroll now since you first mentioned it and just today I signed up for email updates.

    I want to get my blog listed in the blogroll of Obama supporters too.

    Couldn’t figure out how to navigate the site to make this happen.

    Anyway, I love the LGBT for Obama. It really looks good.

    Listen, I’m not coughing up one more thin dime for Obama unless–and I mean SOON–he starts kicking some McCain ass through the millions he’s already raised for commercials. I’ve been shoved under that bus too many times by the Democrats and until I start seeing McCain being defined by the Obama campaign instead of just wussily responding to how McCain has *already* defined the talking point of the day, I’m holding on to my cash to make a getaway out of this country.
