We always hear the words “gay community” when talking amongst ourselves, but what is it? Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people span a spectrum of diversity that doesn’t lump us together by class, race, religion or really any binding character, trait or belief. The only commonality most of us have with one another is that we are discriminated against socially and in our judicial system. Perhaps, that is enough to create a “community.”
I would like to take a few moments to sit on my pulpit and vent. The new promotional video for the Great Nationwide Kiss In has been released.

Before going into my lecture, take a moment to watch the video and draw from it what you will.
