LGBT Obama Supporters Launch New Site
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:
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.
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.
