Observations from the Window 1.14

Lambda Legal (Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund) is the oldest legal organization in the US that focuses solely on the civil rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender people, and those with HIV. It specializes impact legislation and includes among its victories a 1983 decision which made it illegal for insurance companies and disability laws to discriminate against people with HIV. In 2009 it won a historic unanimous decision in Iowa Supreme Court, which ruled that denying marriage to same sex couples was unconstitutional (Varnum v. Brien). This decision made Iowa the first state in the nation with same sex marriage.

Yesterday Lambda released this video which stars a virtual who's who of the antigay world. But rather than piss me off I thought it thoroughly entertaining and found myself laughing at it. I just figure if this is the best they can do I'm not going to lose much sleep
dwelling on it. 


Sh*t Homophobic People Say: no spoofing necessary, 100% real commentary by antigay public figures.
