    I am so happy and inspired to see the various movements finally coming together to let our demands be known. Isolated, we are weak. Together, we are unstoppable. We must learn through activism the old labor motto: An injury to one is an injury to all. As a gay man, I need to be out there standing up to bigotry, no matter who the target is. I am a gay man and I defend a woman’s right to choose. I am a gay man and I stand in solidarity with Arabs and Muslims against Islamophobia. I am a gay man and I march in solidarity with immigrants against racist scapegoating. I am a gay man and I fight for the rights of the transgendered.

    For far too long, we’ve let the right wingers dominate the debate on our issues, from lgbt equality to immigrant rights. We are the majority. We are not a center-right or a right wing nation, although our media, both corporate parties, and a minority of the population are. In a democracy, the majority rules and it’s about time we let OUR majority rule. The world is an ugly place right now and it’s our job to make it pretty. A world without homophobia, racism, sexism, transphobia, biphobia, Islamophobia, exploitation, oppression — that’s beautiful and that’s worth fighting for.
