Just in time for Pride!


Yeah, well, so.

In lieu of selling ads, and also in lieu of selling my organs, I will commence a six-month trial period during which I will sell SWAG (dedicated LD page here). With snappy slogans and captions on it. All of which to try to underwrite put a dent in the cost of publishing this blog, which I love to do, but cannot afford without some help.

I figure heck: people wear clothing, right? And get some of it for their kids and friends, right?

So go check this stuff out. We got us a dozen peppy slogans and they just keep comin’. Right in time for Pride, if you rush the delivery! You can rest easy, knowing that the extremely modest proceeds of the sale will help defray the publishing costs of indie, lesfam new media. Er, meaning yrs truly.

Forwarded action alert from NCLR

Dear Action Alert subscriber,

The last week has been amazing, historic, and emotional with gay and lesbian couples getting married throughout the state of California. Now we must do everything we can to ensure our right to marry is protected.

Pride Month is in full swing across California, and the celebrations are our biggest opportunities to mobilize our supporters before the vote in November. The Equality for All campaign will have a presence at many upcoming Pride Celebrations including: LA Black Pride, San Luis Obispo, Monterey, and Santa Barbara. The campaign is recruiting supporters to volunteer at the festivals and parades to get Californians to vote no on the anti-marriage ballot initiative this November.

We still need more volunteers at the following Pride festivities:

    San Francisco – June 28-29
    San Diego – July 19-20

Click here to volunteer.

And be sure to check out NCLR at San Francisco Pride. Legal Director Shannon Minter and I have been invited to ride in style in the parade with San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera and San Francisco Deputy City Attorney Therese Stewart. If you’re in the area, stop by and show your support.

    San Francisco Pride
    Sunday, June 29, 2008
