As you watch the videos spread across the net of President Obama signing the Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Bill into law on October 28, 2009 — again, I read pages and pages of HATE that are being left as comments beneath something I feel (among MANY others) is triumphant.
What occurred yesterday calls for a celebration. The more laws we have to protect the GLBTQ community, the more HATERS will be put behind bars and punished for their horrific crimes. It’s time for them to think twice. “The mind is like a parachute, it only functions when OPEN.”
I would now like to give a SHOUT OUT to the wonderful, Monica Helms — longtime transgender rights activist.
Monica has a fabulous blog spot that I wanted spread the word about called “Trans Universe”. She is also known for capturing video footage of many events and people. Check out her blog by clicking HERE!
