Thursday, March 18th, three LGBT activists were arrested. Lt. Dan Choi, Captain Jim Pietrangelo and Robin McGehee. It made more news than the 200,000 LGBT equality supporters made when they marched on Washington D.C. last October.
Today, I learned that action is inspiring. Tomorrow, I hope to learn that it’s also contagious.
As my facebook, twitter and email exploded today with little clips of the DADT Rally, I marveled at an act of well timed genius. While the HRC was negotiating equality with the well-oiled political machine, the people were speaking. Grassroots activists took to the streets refusing to negotiate their rights… our rights.
