I’m traveling the Midwest this week, so I’ve got an abbreviated Politics update. I just wanted to ask:

What LGBT issues most concern you?


  1. I”m really glad there is a lot of emphasis right now on ENDA. I’m all for marriage equality, but in the grand scheme of things, its such a superficial equality that I fear what may happen when we actually achieve this. Will all this marriage equality fervor transfer to another cause? Or will “one issue activists” be just that, one timers.

  2. Right on, Ryan. I think people–especially people living comfortably in a state like ours where they are protected in employment and housing–forget that in 23 states you can be fired for being gay, and in over 2/3rds of all states, you can be fired for BEING transgender. Its awful. Folks have to remember that while relationship recognition may locally be the next logical step in a state like Illinois, federally there are other things we can do that can help more people across the board. We can’t forget that.
