Throughout history, in the courts, in congress, in the media, and on main streets across the nation, there have always been and continue to be, people and bigots, attempting to silence our voices and erase our community. They openly challenge our right to exist as Americans with the same rights as others.
We must be willing to stand up and to speak out against all forms of injustice, discrimination, and violence wherever it exists in whatever form it takes and hold fast to our beliefs that equality before the law is what makes our country great.
As we commemorate 50 years since the stonewall riots, we must all stand up with pride, and shhhOUT!
We shhhOUT! about our past, we shhhOUT! for the present, and we proudly shhhOUT! as we move forward into the future!
