Like most gay Americans I have been glued to the television in the evening, watching the ongoing events at the Democratic National Convention. Hillary's speech last night touched on many subjects including the full inclusion of gay and lesbian Americans in this country's future history of equality. The friends that we had over for cocktails all leaped to their feet and cheered.
Her reference to the indomitable humanitarian Harriet Tubman reminded us all that many have come before us in this great country's struggle for freedom and equality for every citizen, regardless of the color of their skin, their gender or sexual orientation.
The rolling ticker at the bottom of the screen informed us that more than 6% of the Democratic super-delegates are openly gay or lesbian. I wonder what the financial value of LGBT means to the Democratic fund-raising operation?
