    Good one on LGBT activism.
    Basically, it seems to call for even more expansive rights and efforts. Let’s make it happen!
    And I like the description of how the people basically gave the Right a big “F you!” Love it!

    On a side note, I do have to say though that at least one activist for LGBT has fallen out of favor with me, for totally unrelated reasons to her work.
