Update: First Gay Marriage Licenses Issued in DC...:)
It's so predictable that days before gay marriage goes into
effect in every state that it becomes the law in this country

the hate-mongers show how threatened they are of marriage

equality. An emergency appeal to stop gay marriage in the

District of Columbia from taking effect was denied by Chief

Justice John Roberts late Tuesday afternoon. Roberts says it

is the practice of the Supreme Court to defer to the rulings of

D.C. courts matters that are of local concern. He also notes

that Congress with its authority to overrule D.C. laws within

30 days has refused to do so. Roberts wrote that "while these

considerations are of course not determinative of the legal

issues, they do weigh against granting petitioners' request for

a stay..."

Baldwin in this exclusive audio byte about this issue...

No Gay Coverage in Obama Health Care

Audio interview w/ Congresswoman Baldwin
Co-Chair of the Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus

on LGBT civil rights reality in 2010 & advocating
for a LGBT
inclusive universal health care bill
@OUTTAKE VOICES™
All the LGBT inclusive language that Congresswoman Baldwin
worked so hard to be part of the Health Care Reform bill has
been stripped from President Obama’s new health care plan.
However, Obama’s proposal does include $11 billion for ''the
operation, expansion, & construction of community health centers''
around the country. This money could perhaps help LGBT & HIV
centers around the country. Congresswoman Baldwin says she
hasn't given up hope. She called President Obama's proposal
''an important step forward that helps to regain our momentum
on health care reform efforts", then added, ''it is not the final word.''
Updates to Come...:)
