Over at my home blog, OpenLeft.com, I often do a round-up of LGBT-related news and actions that are worth noting. I thought I’d bring the same feature here for some noteworthy items you may have missed:
- Coverage of Larry Adams sign and our interview with him is certainly making the rounds on the Web. I’ve seen it on The Advocate, Dallas Voice, LGBTPOV, San Diego Gay and Lesbian News, AMERICABlog, Towleroad, Think Progress, and elsewhere. If you haven’t seen it, the interview is below.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hqOIHugX4dk&feature=player_embedded]
- We didn’t get many other videos up yesterday of rally coverage in Indianapolis, so here’s one for folks to check out. As usual massive turnout #FAIL, and you can see that by how NOM always asks supporters to come closer so it looks like they have an actual crowd.
- HRC and Fred Sainz are spot on in their release regarding NOM today:
“The bus tour is a total sham, plain and simple,” said Fred Sainz, HRC’s vice president of communications. “NOM’s highly-touted bus tour is less about so-called ‘traditional marriage’ and more about creating an elaborate and cynical stunt. NOM rolled out a summer of nationwide events in order to draw lawful protesters, all so that NOM and its allies can pepper ongoing lawsuits challenging public disclosure laws with made-up stories of harassment. This unprecedented victimization crusade is the lowest denominator of political activism, and it won’t fly.”
You can read the full release here.
We’ll be reporting from St. Paul tomorrow. See you then.
