Stonewall Rebellions [Apr. 25th, 2006|11:31 pm]
GSA of Orange County, NY

[mood |busybusy]

Here is a paper that I wrote for my sister for her class for $20
Theme: Equal Rights

Since 1900, various groups in the United States have struggled to achieve full equality.

Identify one group of people in American society that has been denied equal rights.
-Discuss a major problem this group has encountered since 1900 in its struggle for full equality.
-Discuss two specific actions that have beeen taken by an individual, an organization, or government in an effort to help this group overcome the problem.
-Evalute the extent to which this group has achieved eqaulity today

Thusly... i chose the stonewall riots... also cause my mom will be pissed. and because i know ALL ABOUT IT.

Anyways, if you don't know all about stonewall, here is a very basic run down in this paper. There is a lot more to it really politically and all and much more history and background to all the other associations and hatecrimes going on. But this was a major important turning point and is the reason we have pride parades and the day of silence etc: so give it a read.
Also I recommend reading: Making Gay History by Eric Marcus. This covers gay history from the early 1940s about to today through interviews with people from Dr. Evelyn Hooker, who did work similar to Kinsey, all the way to my beloved Ellen D. Check it out. Its all about our fight for lesbian and gay equal rights.

Anyway I could talk all night.
Awesome and amazing. kind of done half fast but gets most of the important details down. Also the song about stonewall that plays between commercials occasionally on LOGO is insanely accurate and hilarious. Check that out too.

I'll write all about the crazy shit i'm doing with PRIDE on campus tomorrow maybe. We've got the GLBT conference here coming up this weekend and I'm mad busy.

there was a mini debate in my government class about gay marriage, and this is what scares me, whenever that debate gets started someone who opposes it makes the statement, well then someone could marry an animal, and the animal they mention is always a goat, always, these people scare me, i know that sounds like an ellen degeneres joke but it really happened in my class

Hurricane caused by gay people? [Aug. 31st, 2005|11:16 pm]
GSA of Orange County, NY
Read this.

An evangelical Christian group that regularly demonstrates at LGBT events is blaming gays for hurricane Katrina.

Repent America says that God "destroyed" New Orleans because of Southern Decadence, the gay festival that was to have taken place in the city over the Labor Day weekend.

"Southern Decadence" has a history of filling the French Quarters section of the city with drunken homosexuals engaging in sex acts in the public streets and bars" Repent America director Michael Marcavage said in a statement Wednesday.

Read more.

I wish I was making this up.
I dunno about you guys, but this is quite amusing to me.

Just a SPECTRUM update if you guys were wondering anymore.

We are supposedly being assigned a supervisor by the administration (Most likely an admin. member themselves).

Once school starts I will be meeting with Mr. Filliponi (God, I need to learn how to spell his name) and we will be discussing what the club plans to do this year. Don't get mad at me, but I guaruntee you we will not be allowed to do anything realtively activist. Don't kill the messenger here.

One last thing, meetings will not be every week. Once a month. Maybe twice a month at the most. If you guys have any suggestions for a day and week of the month, leave it here. I'd like to stay away from Thursdays and Fridays. Thanks.
