Boycott DNC LGBT Fundraiser

Vice-president Joe Biden will be hosting a DNC LGBT fundraiser next week at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington, DC. An individual plate is 1,000 dollars and up and many people have already pulled out due to the administrations lack of action on LGBT issues, and their anti-gay defense of DOMA and DADT.

Among those who have already pulled out are HRC’s National Field Director Marty Rouse, Empire State Pride Agenda’s Alan Van Capelle, Former top Clinton aide David Mixner, Former top Clinton aide Richard Socarides and Towleroad’s Andy Towle and Corey Johnson (AKA William).

The three openly LGBT members of congress are attending the event and have yet to make any statements against the Department of Justices anti-gay defense of DOMA.

Contact our LGBT representatives and let them know that if they attend this event they are abandoning the LGBT community for their own interests.

You might want to check the Jared Polis website. I'm fairly certain that he has put out a statement now about the DOMA document.

Oh, so that's why the Obama administration decided to oh-so-kindly extend federal employee benefits to same-sex partners! I mean, I'm okay with that, but they're clearly expecting a very big return on a pathetically small investment. Well, the ATM is CLOSED! I'm definitely going to write those three representatives.

Anon I haven't seen the statement but it is possible since that he come out with a statement.

Yes cracker it was a very calculated bone being tossed to our community. too little too late, and only effects few.

Check the fine print, see what wonderful benefits are being extended to the domestic partners of federal employees. Don't get too excited.
