Mount de Sales Academy, a private Catholic school in Macon, Georgia has just fired Flint Dollar, its band leader, because he announced he plans to marry his partner of 6 years at a ceremony in Minnesota. According to Dollar, the school knew he was gay when he was hired but stated it was fine as long as it “didn’t interfere with his teaching.” 

Parents and students are currently rallying around Dollar and have launched a Facebook page, a Twitter campaign with the hashtag #savedollar, and a petition at Change.org urging the academy’s president, David Held, to reconsider the termination. https://www.change.org/petitions/david-held-reconsider-the-termination-of-mr-flint-dollar

wickedclothes:

There’s already a Change.org petition against the passing of Amendment One, which banned same-sex marriage, civil unions, and domestic partnerships in North Carolina. These things actually tend to be pretty damn effective.

Let’s see what the power of Tumblr can do! I know there’s at least a million Tumblr users who are against this sort of harmful discrimination and bigotry.

Sign the petition and reblog to spread the word, please!

Feb 29, 2012: Lawmakers in Russia just passed a draconian censorship law that would impose stiff fines for anything construed as “the promotion of homosexuality” in Saint Petersburg, Russia’s second largest city. Reading, writing, speaking or reporting on anything related to gay, lesbian bi or trans (LGBT) people would become a criminal act. This ban on “promotion” would also target Pride parades, literature, theater, or NGOs that openly serve LGBT people.

All Out, a community of almost a million people around the world fighting for full equality, made a little video to send the Governor a message. Pass this law - We Won’t Go There.

Question by hopeharts:

Could you endorse this on your blog? It’s a petition to get my college to recognize LGBTQ support groups and make the campus an accepting environment. I’m one of the few gay guys on campus who is out because of the amount of homophobia here. We’re starting to get some REALLY big publicity so we need as many signatures as possible. It only takes a few seconds to sign! ==> change.org/petitions/president-hope-college-amend-the-official-statement-on-human-sexuality-to-recognize-lgbtq-groups
I am so proud of you, and happy to see you are doing this. I would be happy to share this and help you as much as I can.
Let’s sign this petition and help beat homophobia in Hope College!
