ARE YOU SPEAKING? Information on How to Speak Out.

Lady Gaga asked President Obama at the National Equality March “ARE YOU LISTENING?”

I ask you. “ARE YOU SPEAKING?”

Today the Examiner reported that Reps. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) and Jared Polis (D-CO)

“…said the House is set to pass bills to provide health coverage for the same-sex partners of gay federal workers and to protect all gay and transgender employees from job discrimination. They said they expect a domestic partner benefits bill to come up for a vote by the end of the year and the employment bill to reach the floor early in 2010.

Baldwin and Polis said they are also confident that the House will include a provision in the military spending bill to repeal the Clinton-era “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”, which prohibits LGBT people from serving in the U.S. military.”

Hope After the Rejection of Hearings on DADT by the Court

Even Fox News is reporting the Supreme Court’s refusal to hear arguments on the constitutionality of the Clinton-era Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy[See:Don’t ask, don’t tell challenge rejected], stating:

“The Supreme Court on Monday turned down a challenge to the Pentagon policy forbidding gays and lesbians from serving openly in the military, granting a request by the Obama administration.” [Emphasis Added]

However, LGBT activists have an alternative method of overturning this biased and unconstitutional piece of tainted American history, H.R. 1283, the Military Readiness Enhancement Act of 2009 [“MREA”].
