"Ready for Another March?" I am!
Writing in The Advocate, writer and Sirius radio broadcaster Michelangelo Signorile suggests in his article "Ready for Another March?" the need for continued marches like the recent National Equality March if the LGBT community doesn't see concrete action on our issues (ENDA, DOMA, DADT). Obviously this doesn't at all replace the need for lobbying and direct contact with our elected representatives. But this is something I've been thinking of since my partner and I participated in the march earlier this month. This country has never seen fundamental correction of past injustices without people taking to the streets and making noise in every way possible (e.g. the suffrage movement and the African American civil rights movement). I'm ready.
