Grinning Cat, that quote of yours kicks MAJOR-LEAGUE ASS.  The final two statements:

Pushed out? No. I walked out.

speak to the thought Jeff gave this matter, the conclusion he came to and the choice he made, one that many of us in our own way share with him.

Smokin' stuff, GC, thanks for posting it!

As I am a transwoman I really enjoyed her talents.  The best part of this is that we "Ts" as a group are slowly catching up with the rest of the LGB+T community.  When I was her age in the 40s & 50s you were either in the closet or dead.  I may have enough time left to see us fully intregated as I could make another 20 years.  A lot are making it to 100 these days and we are making progress.  Even us Atheists are gaining ground.  It has been years since people ran in terror if they found you to be one of those scary heathens that were "Non Believers"

She's really a beautiful person, and has a beautiful voice.  I'm a fan:-)

I liked that video a lot, Dallas.  Thanks for posting.  We are all beautifully wonderful in our diversity.

My father was a Catholic deacon, my mother was a lay minister and I thought about becoming a priest. I was in church every Sunday for the first 15 years of my life. Now I spend my Sundays on my bike, on my snowboard or on my husband. I haven’t spent my post-Catholic decades in a sulk, wishing the church would come around on the issue of homosexuality so that I could start attending Mass again. I didn’t abandon my faith. I saw through it. The conflict between my faith and my sexuality set that process in motion, but the conclusions I reached at the end of that process — there are no gods, religion is man-made, faith can be a force for good or evil — improved my life. I’m grateful that my sexuality prompted me to think critically about faith. Pushed out? No. I walked out.

A wonderful new program just started at a Chicago high school:

LGBT Mentor Program Launches at Lincoln Park High School

The dean of the high school is heading a mentor program, which pairs recent university graduates with LGBT teens at the high school to help them deal with issues such as bullying and how and whether to come out to their families while still in their teens.

There are no similar programs in the city, lest the country, Lang said, and he hopes the model could expand city-wide and serve as an example across the country.

The first meeting was held at the school in mid-April and drew an even greater attendance than the organizers anticipated, leaving them in search of more mentors.

What a GREAT speech!!  I laughed at the "gay rainbow" across his electorate.  "BE NOT AFRAID"!!

I saw that clip from New Zealand over at PZ Myers' blog Pharyngula this morning and was going to post it here, but you beat me to it, Daniel. 

GREAT speech! 

I like how he ridicules the religious arguments against equality.  No politician here would have the nads to do that......and that's a bitter shame.

That's sweet.  Congrats to them!
