LBGT Resource Office- Transgender Speaker

Thursday, March 31st at 7:00pm in the Mendenhall Great Rooms the LGBT Resource Office will be hosting it's first campus event, co-sponsored with the GLBTSU, called "Not Your Average Southern Gentleman: Growing up Trans in the South".  Our guest speaker's name is Loren Lemmond and he is a female to male transperson.  Loren candidly tells his story of growing up in North Carolina, of realizing his gender identity, of coming out to his family, and of the struggles and triumphs along the way.  He shows pictures of himself growing up, and shares funny, sad, touching and ultimately inspiring descriptions of what his experience has been like coming to terms with his gender identity and the range of ways those around him have responded.  After the presentation he opens the floor for questions and is generally willing to answer almost anything as he tries to help people really understand and become more comfortable interacting with Trans people.  He has been a popular speaker…

WBC in NC today

Image
Today I had five things plans. More or less five events I wanted to photograph, and the Protest that the WBC was to do in NC today was one of them.. However, they were no shows..

I call the local PD and ask if the WBC had received a permit to protest. The PD officer told no permit was issued and they knew nothing about this protest.. Meaning either they (WBC) was going to protest without a permit and with protection..

Since I could get confirmation I chose to go to another event.

here Is the Press release of the said event.













I tweet the many members of the WBC, this is what I got.







I have to wonder what I tweet to her to block me.. I guess she didn’t like my truth.

then I got this one.. it will make you laugh..









Wow someone with a heart in this bunch. NOT NOT!!!!


They claim they were there, but we all know if they were,they would have made the local news. It did make the news…

That is right Qnotes’s Editor Matt has written his piece about the Equality NC Town Hall Meeting concerning the anti-LGBT constitutional amendment, for which means that only one more will be written that will what the LGBT folks of Charlotte discuss at their Town Hall on the 24th of March.

He gave kudos to Pam on her piece that she wrote concerning the Town Hall in her area, on her blog.

Matt, did mention that there is a Greenville Town Hall Meeting set for April 6. However he didn’t give the address or location of the meeting.

So anyone whom might be interest in attending the Greenville Town Hall, now has to search the net for this info.

So what does Qnotes hate about Eastern NC, that they routinely ignore us as apart of the community.

Will it be a crime to work at a nonprofit serving immigrant residents of NC?

Image
The most draconian proposed anti-immigrant legislation in the nation has now been introduced before the North Carolina General Assembly by Representatives Clevland, Blust and Hilton (all Republicans respectively from Onslow, Guilford, and Catawba counties).Introduced as HB 343 and titled: "An Act to Enact the Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act," this law would make it a state crime to be in North Carolina without posession (on one's person) of valid immigration documents. It also would not only permit but require law enforcement officers to question anyone they stop for any reason concerning their immigration status, and require them to detain anyone they suspect of not being in this country legally.

A few days I create a Facebook event for the Town hall Meeting that Equality NC will be holding soon in Greenville, NC.

this is what I got on behalf of Qnotes,









Ok then I reply with this, and the return reply, even though I think he was being a smart ass.












So I really thought about writing the piece, which would be a challenge for me... I have seen Qnotes guidelines for submissions. So I knew it might be hard for me to do.

Then out of the blue Friday morning just a bit pass 10 am I got a nice little email for Matt, the editor of Qnotes.

In this email, Matt basically told me, even if I wrote the piece on Equality NC Town Hall Meeting In Greenville, he wouldn’t used it till I made a public apology to all of his so-called colleagues in advocacy and in news-media both in the state and nationwide.

From Matt, on the behalf of Qnotes:

The Great Chick-fil-A debate still going on Now in NC

This brouhaha began in February when this prissy kept boy, asshole blogger, whom has way too much time on his hands. Whom also has a very unhealthily obsession for Maggie and Brian over at NOM. Who visit their site and blogs every waking moment of the damn day.

He got his tightly whiteys in a knot when a Christian base company have millions to the WinShape Foundation.

The rest of Gay Inc., Bloggers and News outlets are pushing this so hard that it’s not funny. Gay Inc. and its minions won’t rest till Chick-fil-a files goes out of business. That is a main goal of Gay Inc., to get these Christian businesses out of business.

How Gay Inc. has got the colleges in their pockets as well. Gay Inc has now enlisting the LGBT college students in North Carolina to join in on this fight.

Duke University is now in the process of reviewing their relationship with Chick-fil-a, also the students over at NC State is also seeking to oust Chick-fil-a from their campus as well.

Also Gay Inc won’t rest …

Now we are Termites

Image
I must say I didn’t see this one coming. I mean we have been call names for years.. but this one takes the cake.Dan Ramos, head of Texas’ Bexar County Democrats, last week likened gay people to termites, the Tea Party and Nazis. What a class act.“They are all connected to the gay Democratic Party, the so-called Stonewall Democrats. Just like termites they managed to get some of their people in key positions,” Ramos said during a discussion with the ‘San Antonio Current’ about his poor electoral performance last November, which was clearly gay people’s fault.According to him, gay Democrats like the Stonewall Democrats have hijacked the party, just like the Tea Party or the “fucking Nazi Party,” because Nazi and Hitler comparison are so effective.At least he also pick on the Baggers as well,“I liken them to the Tea Party — the Tea Party and the fucking Nazi Party — because they’re 90 percent white, blue-eyed, and Anglo, and I don’t give a fuck who knows that,” insisted Ramos. “Just like…

Assistant Principal brings Gun to School

An assistant principal who unknowingly brought a gun to Princeton High School in the glove box of her car was suspended for three days but will not be charged, according to Johnston County Sheriff's officials. Catherine Bennett, an assistant principal at the Johnston County school, did not realize the handgun was in the car, which she had brought to school to be worked on by the auto mechanics class, said Tammy Amaon, spokeswoman for the Johnston County Sheriff's Office. The gun had been misplaced, Amaon said, and Bennett and her husband had been searching for it at home.

Letter From Equality NC

Image
Dear Friend,

Hi!  My name is Josh Wynne and I’m one of Equality NC’s new organizers working against the anti-LGBT constitutional amendment.

During the past few weeks, we’ve shared scary news of the anti-LGBT amendment that was filed in the NC Senate.  Here’s something you can do about it.  We’ve also learned encouraging news about polling that says many North Carolinians are in favor of some form of same-sex relationship recognition.  With your help, we can mobilize fair-minded North Carolinians against this mean-spirited amendment. 

Whether you’re new to Equality NC or have been involved with us for years, we know you care about this issue and are dedicated to this cause.  You know the damage this amendment would do to LGBT individuals, youth, families, and allies.  Getting postcards signed by your friends, neighbors, family, and coworkers is a great way to both bring the issue to light and to let NC senators and representatives know that voters in their district care about equal r…

Debate over Internet bill in NC General Assembly

The bill, which is now working its way through both the state House and Senate, is a detailed piece of legislation that supporters argue is needed to limit governments from competing with private companies that also offer Internet service. “The bill that’s been proposed is so broad and has so many overlapping restrictions, it might well prevent us even from providing free Internet to low-income housing people,” Raleigh Mayor Charles Meeker said.

Not Surprising at all, OBAMA NOT FULFILLING TRANSPARENCY PLEDGE

From the Net,  In theory, a Freedom of Information Act request should be the "Free Space" on the bingo card of political journalism (just hear us out). If fully enforced, the 1966 law -- compelling the government to produce information about nearly any aspect of its operation if asked -- could allow a reporter, no matter how green, to gain access to previously undisclosed documents and information. While seasoned D.C. journalists might have a stable of sources thanks to years of meeting people at book parties or dating people who room with Financial Services staffers (or whatever qualifies as pavement-pounding in this city), a FOIA request could, if properly exploited, provide a young D.C. journalist with a much-needed starter-scoop (See?! It's the space that everyone gets! NAILED. IT.). However, a new report from George Washington University's National Security Archive indicates that the law continues to be haphazardly enforced, despite an executive order from Presi…

My thoughts on the Haas11 Conference in SF

Image
I'm convening a gathering of 30-some top LGBT bloggers, journalists, and newspaper editors to talk about major issues facing our community that currently don't get nearly the amount of ink as some of our more sexy and popular problems. The focus this time will be on immigration issues and teen homelessness and bullying. This is the second year in a row for the convening.

The good folks at the Haas Foundation are paying for everyone's travel expenses because they believe in the power of spreading knowledge. Quite a few bloggers would never have this experience or be able to sit and speak to some of the folks shaping our movement, so I'm really proud to be playing my part in selecting attendees and facilitating the trip. Plus, everyone invited can live-tweet, blog, Facebook, whatever they'd like; it's all on the record and there's no secret information!

This is Wisconsin State Senator Chris Larson -- and today, I'm heading home to Wisconsin to join the fight in person.
The last three weeks have shown what progressive strength and worker solidarity look like. 


My fellow senators and I know that thousands of PCCC members in Wisconsin and across the nation have been fighting right alongside us -- attending rallies, making phone calls, donating to some great TV ads, and telling your friends about the Republican war on workers.


I want to say thank you. I also want to let you know that the fight's not over. 


Republicans need to learn what accountability feels like. It's time for Republican senators to be recalled from office.

Md. House effectively kills same-sex marriage bill

The Maryland House of Delegates has voted to effectively kill a bill for the year that would have allowed same-sex marriage in Maryland.

The House approved on voice vote a motion to send the bill back to the Judiciary Committee, an acknowledgment by supporters that it did not have sufficient votes to pass on the floor.

The bill cleared the Senate two weeks ago on a 25-to-21 vote, and Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) had pledged to sign it.

Advocates for the bill had hoped Maryland would join five other states and the District in allowing same-sex marriages. The bill had significant momentum coming out of the Senate but ran into resistance in the Democat-led House from African-American lawmakers from Prince George's County, who cited religious opposition in their districts, and conservative Democrats in Southern Maryland and the Baltimore suburbs.

GOP likely needs more Democrats for veto override

RALEIGH, N.C. — North Carolina House Republicans likely must persuade a few more Democrats if they want to cancel Gov. Bev Perdue's veto blocking a GOP effort to challenge a provision in the federal health care overhaul requiring people to get health insurance.

House leaders scheduled an override vote for Wednesday, but Speaker Thom Tillis of Mecklenburg County said it could be delayed.

Two Democrats joined Republicans in voting for the final measure on the House floor two weeks ago.

They have to ask for the help of the Dem’s, yet if the Dem’s need help from them, the answer would be no.

STATE REPRESENTATIVES CALL FOR CONTINUED CRIMINALIZATION OF GAY AND LESBIAN KANSANS

Topeka, Kans, March 8, 2011 -

State Representatives Jan Pauls (D, Hutchinson), and Lance Kinzer (R, Olathe) said yesterday that being gay or lesbian should remain a crime in Kansas. Pauls made, with Kinzer’s support, the successful motion in the Kansas Legislature’s Corrections and Juvenile Justice Committee to keep the criminalization of gay and lesbian relationships on the books. Their action removed key language from HB2321, proposed by the Kansas Judicial Council, which would have resolved inconsistencies in Kansas criminal code, as well as remove unconstitutional laws.

“Jan Pauls was trusted to be a judge before becoming a state representative, and should know better than to…

NC Senate leader faces April speeding court date

Image
I didn’t know the speed has changed… What a lie… however I’m sure the DA or the judge will drop the case for this Rep. asshole… RALEIGH -- A court date is set for Sen. Phil Berger after being accused of speeding the week before being elected leader of the North Carolina Senate. Berger's office said Monday he was cited Jan. 19 for traveling 77 mph in a 55 mph zone on Interstate 85 in Rowan County. Berger said he was traveling from Charlotte to Eden when a trooper gave him a ticket. He said he hadn't noticed the speed limit had changed from 65 mph to 55 when he was stopped. His case was supposed to be heard in court last week, but Berger said it was continued. A court calendar now says it's April 8. Berger said he didn't tell the trooper he was a senator and expected to be treated like others accused of speeding.
