Why are we and the Gay Media not standing up for our Trans brothers and sister? Why does GAY Inc. have problem with them. It’s ok for Gay Media to take Trans-money but not support them.. This wrong.
Note: I will have to do more research on this topic and post more.
However listen following video,
So who is Mike Rogers,
Mike Rogers (born November 12, 1963) is an American fundraiser, blogger and gay rights activist in the Washington, D.C.-area best known for his activity in outing allegedly closeted gay politicians who actively oppose gay rights. He has worked as a fundraiser for a number of non-governmental organizations, is publisher of PageOneQ and is associate publisher of The Raw Story. He is a leading subject of the 2009 film Outrage, on the subject of outing closeted politicians.
Rogers' web site blogactive.com has been a focal point for outing those he considers to be closeted gay politicians who actively oppose gay rights. His blog has been discussed in the Washington Post and he has been a focal point in the debate over the ethics of outing public figures. Recent targets for Rogers have included Representatives Ed Schrock and David Dreier, U.S. Senator Larry Craig and South Carolina Lieutenant Governor Andre Bauer. He also reported on Jeff Gannon's lack of reporting credentials while having White House press credentials. In September 2008, Mike outed Mark Buse, John McCain's Chief of Staff, as being gay.
Folks like Mike here, and those in the Gay Inc. and Country Club, only wants those rights for themselves that they can buy for themselves..
Move N.C. Forward, Don’t Hold N.C. Back,
On Monday, the Budget and Tax Center put forward a revenue modernization plan that would effectively address the revenue problem driving North Carolina’s budget shortfall and move the state forward. On Thursday, the new majority entered legislation to hold North Carolina back. The so-called Taxpayer Bill of Rights (TABOR), by limiting growth in revenues to population growth plus inflation, would lead to a sustained and worsening decline in the quality of public structures—public schools, colleges and universities, heath care and mental health services—and harm the state’s long-term economic growth potential.
Special needs kids “too expensive” at conservative activist’s private schools
WUNC radio ran a story earlier this week on one of Art Pope’s main men in the effort to privatize/profitize/re-segregate the public schools, Bob Luddy. Luddy runs a chain of private schools under the name Thales Academy. Ron Margiotta used to sit on the Thales board of directors.
Synthetic reefer madness: Orwellian language and absurd penalties in fake pot bill
The wacky proposals just keep on coming over at the General Assembly. Sarah Preston of theACLU-NC called our attention to this Senate proposal to criminalize “synthetic cannabinoids” (aka “K2″ “Spice” or synthetic marijuana).

Yesterday afternoon SB 106, the anti-LGBT constitutional amendment, was introduced in the North Carolina Senate. We asked you to take action in anticipation of this terrible bill, and it has already made a real difference.
Over 3,500 people emailed their senators in opposition to the bill in the last week, in addition to the nearly 200 people who met with legislators at Equality NC's Day of Action and hundreds of others who made phone calls. Although 23 senators sponsored the bill, a majority of senators (8 Republicans and all 19 Democrats) refused to sponsor this harmful legislation. That is a powerful signal that we can fight this thing and we can win.
You probably have some questions about the bill and what it means, and I'll try to answer some of those below.
First, I want you to know that Equality NC's top priority this year is to defeat this amendment in the legislature. It's a tall order in a tough political climate, but we've beaten the odds before. Our lobbyist, Dean Plunkett, and I are working hard every day to bring legislators on both sides of the aisle to our cause. We are mobilizing and expanding our base of activists across the state and engaging the public to stand up for fairness like never before.
I'll be calling on you to take action frequently in the coming weeks. I hope you can make a commitment right now to send those emails, make those phone calls, and volunteer your time at those critical moments. And I hope you'll enlist your friends, family, and colleagues in protecting all North Carolina families.
To learn more about the anti-gay amendment and what it means, check out the Frequently Asked Questions below.
The bill would amend the state constition to include a new section that reads "Marriage between a man and a woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this State." Click here to see the full text on the legislature's website.

In a rare and extraordinary step, today the Obama Administration announced that it will stop defending the discriminatory federal "Defense of Marriage Act" (DOMA) in court – specifically, the section that denies federal benefits to married same-sex couples.
DOMA keeps these couples from getting family and medical leave, Social Security survivors' benefits, joint tax filing, and immigration rights, among many other benefits.
You helped bring about this historic day. HRC supporters like you have written tens of thousands of letters to President Obama, shared thousands of personal stories of how DOMA has hurt their families, and helped HRC engage in years of advocacy on this issue with the administration.
As President Obama himself has said, DOMA unfairly discriminates against Americans. He needs to know how many people applaud his decision to defend the principles of the constitution.
The Obama Administration has dealt a double blow to DOMA today. Not only has it stopped defending this law (which the president has long called discriminatory), it has affirmed that any law that discriminates based on sexual orientation should have to pass a higher legal test in court.
This is a monumental decision for thousands of same-sex couples and their families.
Unfortunately, anti-LGBT leaders in Congress may have a chance to defend the law themselves, so it's not the end of the road for DOMA.
But together, we'll fight any attempt to waste taxpayer dollars defending this patently unconstitutional law. The federal government has no business picking and choosing which legal marriages they want to recognize.
Thank you for all your hard work on this issue, and for your continued commitment to building a nation where all are equal.

Recently Matt over at Qnotes, wrote piece about the Filing of the Anti-gay marriage bill that was filed by Gaston County Sen. James Forrester.
link to the bill.
I made a simple comment on this post. It was short and to the point.
so where/when do we start our campaign against this bill?????????????????????
Comment by SNT — February 22, 2011 @ 9:28 pm
In which two fucking pinheads have to post their holier than thou opinions.
Appellation had this to say,
SNT,Then this asshole weight in,
At a very minimum, please pay attention to Equality NC. They’ve been fighting the marriage amendment for years, and have continued that fight this year.
They’ve already held one lobby day (earlier than usual). Their legislative contact campaign (email/phone/letter/etc.) has been active for weeks.
I know you’re aware of these happenings because you complain about them and then somehow find an excuse not to go or participate.
If you want to start your own campaign, no one is stopping you.
Otherwise, you still have the option to participate in existing efforts.
Comment by Appellation — February 23, 2011 @ 10:39 am (note some of the comment was deleted)
@Appellation… I’m starting to think that SNT and other “gay” bloggers like him are just anti-gay trolls in sheep’s clothing out to distract gay folks, cause divisions and sow distrust among our community.So simply by asking a question, these bastards attack me, fine but they know I can’t attack them back on Qnotes, because Matt has my name and ip set on Moderation. Which one post took almost all weekend to get approve.
Comment by Oscar Meyer Weiner — February 23, 2011 @ 10:42 am
I live east of 95 in North Carolina, Where little to none LGBT Events happen. yes many times I wish I could attend these events that are held in Raleigh or Durham, I plan to be there and some times live throw a curve ball and I can’t make it.
The last now LGBT Event held in the East where I could attend and did was during the anti-bulling campaign that was held in Rocky Mount.
Appellation, OMW,as the same mind set as Matt at Qnotes,, If you live east of Raleigh you simple don’t exist, this was prove some time back. When Matt stated that we here in the east was a waste of time and resources.
Now they want us to listen and follow Equality NC direction, well letters and email, campaign isn’t really going to work for those whom Representatives are those who co-sign this bill. So other measures must be enacted. One blogger in NC wants to the same type of campaign that Bill is doing in Indiana.
Yes it is true that Equality NC has carry this fight all these years on our behalf, but Now the fight is now here. It’s time for the LGBT Community of NC to do something. A Few years back our local fundies had a rally in Raleigh were they bused hundreds in, Equality NC and others didn’t want us to do a counter-rally, however a small group held one. (this was ignore by Qnotes). Yet when NOM Came To Raleigh the community find the time to out and protest.. So what will it be, we will Rage Rage against for this Plight.

Subject: TAKE ACTION: Anti-Gay Amendment Filed Today
Yesterday Sen. Jim Forrester filed Senate Bill 106, an anti-LGBT constitutional amendment, and it will be introduced on the Senate floor today.
So far there are a total of 23 sponsors on the bill. I need you to contact your Senator today and ask him or her not to support this mean-spirited, bill.
This is just the beginning of the fight. Take a stand now, before it's too late!
Together, we can stop this attack on LGBT North Carolinians.

Please share and forward!
This is a "mini ball" event with competitions across catagories... from "Butch Realness to Vogue Fem!"
Saturday, Feb 19, 2011
8:00 PM - 1:00 AM
City Hotel and Bistro
This is being hosted by a range of local groups and organizations.
Information on the Ball Culture:
ABC 11 as confirmed that GSK will be cutting an undetermined numbers of jobs in the Research Triangle Park, as it scales back its neuroscience division.
The pharmaceutical maker reported a 60 percent drop in 2010 profits earlier this month. Since 2007, the company has cut about 22,000 jobs worldwide and reduced its U.S. workforce by about 4,000.Also it will try to buy back some of it own stock by selling off lesser known drug brands..
In addition to slowing sales, the company also paid out billion to settle legal claims related to its controversial diabetes drug Avandia following allegations it increases the risk of heart attacks.
This is more jobs loss for NC, it seem more jobs are leaving the State then coming to it..
So NCGA and Bev Perdue, where are this jobs???
Just because he was wearing a pink shirt, This would not have been no small incident here in the US…
The newspaper names the boy as Oskar and reports how his liking for pink clothing, ballet and nail polish left him exposed to regular bullying from other boys in his playgroup.
The newspaper reported that he had also complained to his parents that he had been subjected to taunts that he was "gay" and "a girl". He had furthermore complained of being excluded from the group, and having been dragged from a climbing-frame.
The incident last week in which the 6-year-old sustained a noticeable injury to his neck after having been stabbed with a blunt knife was the last straw for the parents, who have now moved their son and reported the matter to the Schools Inspectorate (Skolinspektionen).
The parents were reportedly further angered by the fact that they heard of the incident from their son and not from the staff at the preschool, who described the clash as a "small incident".
"I don't want to have my child at a school which considers a stab with a knife to be a 'small incident'," the boy's mother told Jönköpings-Posten.
This is why we need a Hate Crime Law…
Lets make sure the DA in Case does his/her job..If not lets March on the Court…
A Hickory, North Carolina man called 911 to report that he had murdered his roommate Stephen Starr:
"Anderson is accused of shooting 36-year-old Starr with a shotgun and pistol and also carved a word into Starr’s body."
About 4 minutes and 30 seconds into the call, the telecommunicator asks what sparked the attack. Anderson said it was because he was straight, and Starr was gay. According to him, the two met at a gay club. Anderson said he was straight, but went to the club to experiment. “I met him and went to his house and he took me in and I turned straight again. And he wanted to touch me and stuff and I wouldn’t let him, and he kept trying. And I waited until he went to sleep and then I shot him three times. And I mutilated him very badly and I’m sorry, I’m sorry. Oh God, please help me.”

In San Francisco, A group of LGBT couple ask for marriage licenses once again. Where they once had the right, but thanks to Prop8 they no longer do.
This Group stage a sit for this right to be return to them.
As reported by the AP,
The AP reported: "The brief occupation of the county clerk's office provided a new twist on what has become a Valentine's Day ritual in many cities of gay and lesbian couples trying to obtain marriage licenses and being turned down. When the couples sat on the floor and refused to leave, sheriff's deputies led them away in handcuffs. But the protestors all were released 15 minutes later without being cited."
A Group in Ashville, NC join this Rally call, The group met up at the Buncombe County Courthouse, where local same-sex couples applied for marriage licenses, however under NC law their were deny licenses. The Group however did hand out information on marriage equality, and a small protest over the lack of equal rights for the LGBT community.
Veteran activist Robin Tyler is ratcheting up her previous call for a national LGBT march on Washington, D.C., in 2012.
Tyler said the process of organizing a national march would trigger more activity in the states than what is currently taking place under the leadership of both state and national LGBT groups.Well M.C. over that InterstateQ thinks this is a bad idea. This is what he claims:
Similarly, no one so far has pointed out any single direct benefit gained from any of our community’s past national marches on Washington. I’m willing to listen and weigh the evidence, but as it stands I know of no victories, successes or changes that came as a direct result of encouraging thousands or even hundreds of thousands to blow hundreds or thousands of dollars in traveling for to the national mall for one day’s worth of chanting and holding signs.Well nothing never came out of these marches on Washington, I would beg the differ. Something always come out these Marches, they may be small changes, or more networking between local and national groups too.
He suggest, that Robin Tyler, if she is truly interest in creating change in this nation, then she support more local equality initiatives, and if she wants a national gathering, she should try attending the next Creating Change Conference. Where she will learn something and meeting new friends and allies, and will get resources to start on equality at home.
I think Matt is forgetting that Ms Tyler has been around much longer then he has. Fighting equality and social justice much longer then He has. However I forgot this is the new era of LGBT where the young think they own the movement…
However, Miss Negative Nancy had this to say as well,
But if education and true motivation to create change is not want you’re really after, then go ahead and plan a national march on Washington. You’ll just spend a day walking and marching and chanting and holding signs. When you go home, you’ll feel really, really good. But you’ll have exactly the same amount of resources you left home with: zero.Then what do we get out of having Pride Marches every year? We walking around, chant, hold signs, buy pride items from vendors, this is sounding like same as a March on DC... to me..

You know, I really wonder why gays like to throw pride parades. Is it because they want attention? Basically, when they do shit like this, they are asking to be judged by their sexuality. I think its ignorant that they show pride in their sexuality. If there was a heterosexual pride parade I wouldn't be part of it. I don't want people to judge me by my sexuality. Its actually kind of offensive when guys lump me into that "guy" category and ask me if I'm gonna hit that tonight, in reference to my sweetheart. The wonderful beautiful girl in my life I would do anything for all of the sudden becomes reduced to a thing that I "tap".
I think ignorant indulgence in any sexuality is completely ignorant and shallow. When it comes down to it, I see no reason anybody should know my sexuality, unless I want to form an intimate relationship with them. And I'm taken forever, so fuck it.
If I want people to judge me, I want them to judge me by my ideas, my personality, what I contribute to the world, and how I treat others. Not what I do in bed. Sometimes humanity really really disappoints me.
Finally a post with thought and not just derogatory statements about homosexuality.
I see your point and agree, but I also understand where their desire for "parade's" and things of that nature come from. In a perfect world, they shouldn't have any reason to display their sexuality, with parade's or any other measure. We're far from a perfect world, and I don't think it's so much that they want to be judged by their sexuality as much as they feel they are already judged by their sexuality, If this board is any indication, they are right.
So it's kind of like "you want to judge me by that . . .well here it is" kind of thing. I know people that are gay, and they don't flaunt it (as far as I know), they really just want to be treated equally.
I would go out on a limb and bet that if they were treated with equal respect, they wouldn't be having these parade's and such, but that's just my opinion.
Having said that I understand where it comes from, I agree that it won't further their cause much if any. The only thing that will improve equality in my opinion is waiting for society to catch up. I think we can all agree that homosexuality isn't going away like some disease, but it will take some societies and cultures longer than others to come to accept it. . . .time!
As a gay man, I actually tend to agree somewhat with your opinion. While I understand why people want be "proud" of who they are, and I understand that most "Pride" festivals are events designed to show that "pride", I have never understood why who one sleeps with is a primary source of "pride". Even as a gay man, I am often offended by those who find it necessary to flaunt their sexuality with stereotypical "acting". So many effeminate gay men I have met are just acting and forcing mannerisms, often for shock value - how outrageous can I be.
I dare not say I am "straight acting" as that too implies acting. I "fly under the radar" and unless I'm in the company of other gay men, no one would know I was gay and even then I am usually considered "not gay enough". I am not ashamed to be gay but nor do I feel compelled to "act" gay. But being gay to me only speaks to who I sleep with, not my entire existance. I am not immersed in "gay culture" as I find it to be rather shallow and limiting.
The fact that I am gay is secondary to who I am as a person. I have had a wonderful partner in my life for 15 years and while we do enjoy being in the company of like-minded people with shared interests, we are not comfortable with "look at me, I'm gay" types as their primary view of their self-worth.
The co-founder of the Group that is planning the event said they are not move by the intimidated coming from Pastor Charles Tyler of a Local Baptist Church, whom claim this event is to Corrupt the local Children of the Outer Banks.
There is no Parade, just fun in the sun, with open-mind folks, enjoying the beauty of the Outer Banks.
There will be Day time events for the whole family, while there are a few evening events aim for Adults only.
"We're just slowly trying to change those attitudes so that these folks coming to the Outer Banks won't get dirty looks from people," Miller said.
The Event is set for sunny June of 2011.
"I think people that write anonymous crap like that are chickens," said Nags Head Mayor Bob Oakes, whose Village Realty is a sponsor of the event.For more on this event Click here

If one chose to write about state politics and budgets problems, they must accept that someone else’s view will not be the same as theirs. The think otherwise would be completely stupid and wishful thinking.
Recently a young blogger, who hails for Charlotte NC, wrote a nice piece about the current budget issue that NC faces. Title “Still no jobs, but no anti-gay legislation either.” Now I’m glad that NC Legislature doesn’t have any anti-gay bill as of yet. Yet, the cuts they are planning are just unbelievable to me and I’m sure to many other.
Blogger said this,
Week three of the North Carolina General Assembly’s 2011 session is coming to a close. Though GOP leadership has allowed plenty of attacks on the poor, communities of color and immigrant communities, they’ve not yet touched the LGBT community.
Ok, this is not much of a surprise that the poor get screwed every time when a state has to redo their budgets. For many, this is common place and is to be expected.
I made the following comment.
Sorry but the Governor isn’t doing enough, I see that you didn’t say anything about the big budget cut on Education by 1.3 billion…
“Sometimes you just have to wonder if the U.S. educational system is really even as good as our already, abysmally-low international rankings”
Budget cuts is one reason why we are ranking so low in education,
However it’s nice to know Bev Perdue might not win in the next election, as a Dem Governor she the worst.
I was trying to point out that they plan a huge cut the education, and I was wondering why he didn’t mention this.
Here is he reply,
Sick, I’m tired of your negativity. Since this is my personal blog and I alone get to set the rules (though I have tried to be pretty fair when it comes to commenting), I’m giving you just one more chance to try some positivity. Anymore negative and/or cynical comments from you will not be posted. Consider this fair warning.
Now I can only guess my comment about our so-called Governor is what really pissed him off. Just be she is a Democrat, does mean that she is the best for NC, this is my opinion.
However, he also gave me a warning too. So I did reply to his comment,
so I point out how you left out the attack by Gop NC body of the legislature planning to cut education out by 1.3 billion and that Gov is a hack, and you think this is being negative, MMMM fine whatever,
Since this will no doubt be my last post on this blog of yours, why didn’t you mention the Education budget cuts since that affects everyone,
You need to pull you head out of @#$%^&* and see that if you want to keep a group down and oppress limiting the amount of education that they can get
I should point out that at the time of writing this post he hasn't approved it.. I left out the off the following “will do just that.”
I will agree that lately I have become very cynical and critical of my community. I feel that we have lost who and what we truly are. In order to please those who will donate money to our organizations and cause. We are allowing them to set the stage for all to play by. This is wrong, period. Those that won’t play by their rules are casted out like yesterday’s newspapers. We are using tactics that we normal would never use in the past.
He wrote that he was Glad over this,
By all means, I’m not happy about the GOP’s unfulfilled promises on jobs (I just wonder how many of those voters who chose them are even paying attention), but I’m phenomenally thankful we haven’t yet been forced to deal with any anti-LGBT legislation. That doesn’t mean it’s not coming, and we have only the good and hard work of groups like Equality North Carolina and their allies to thank
I glad too that they haven’t push to have the anti-marriage bill for a vote too. However, I do see that in our future, like right after the budget is signed by the Governor, then watch how many of those anti-bills will pop up. I also have lost all faith in Equality NC, ever since the Fruit-loop event.

Jesse Helms and Newt Gingrich were shaking hands congratulating themselves on the introduction of an antigay bill in Congress. If it passes, they won't be able to shake hands, because it will then be illegal for a prick to touch an asshole.
After two days of debate, the chamber barely passed the measure, 391-28...a real squeaker. Some Democrats had voiced concerns that the vote was unnecessary, as each committee has the agency to undertake the investigations themselves. All 28 "nay" votes were from Democrats, the rest (142) voted for the bill. [The Hill]
Yes this is their plan, to force every LGBT out of the closet. What every happen to each their own, and Live and let Live.
Gay Inc., and the Country Club Spoke person, (was once) Sent this Tweet,
So where is the massive Coming out party…
he is going to sue them for $150,000 each with equals to $5.2billion, which he would never earn any other way. I guess the fake str8 boys don’t know how to play str8.. sells must be down, online subscribers must be down as well.
However the Lawyer if he charge 35% will get .1.8 billion.. then again when you pay these so-called str8 guys $XXX,XXX per project, no wonder you get your lawyer to find a new cash cow for your business

to see the fund-raiser flier click here please,
Now this NON- Profit, may not raise the money they need to help the local Teens in the Cary, Raleigh-Durham Area..
Also to the members of the Country Club and Gay, Inc. what are you going to do about???
- Listens when you're in crisis
- Is confidential
- Is non-judgmental
- are sad
- are worried
- feel suicidal
- have a decision to make
- are angry
- feel frustrated
- feel there is no one else you can turn to
Mission StatementHopeLine is a family of confidential services offering caring, non-judgmental listening and resource information in an effort to improve the overall well-being of people in the community.
Hope Line joined with Chick-Fil-A for a fund raiser to raise money to help stop Teen Suicide and to help teen with other issues.
However this year event may not be as good for them, simply because of Jeremy Hooper @ goodasyou blog site.
Yes prissy ass, self entitle faggot, got his tight y whities in a bunch, over the fact that another private own Chick-Fil-A franchise, was helping out another group, whom just happen to anti-samesexmarriage. Jeremy on the Behalf of Gay Inc., start this Controversy. Now the Hopeline just might paid the price for it.
So who is Jeremy Hooper,
From what I gather from this video about Jeremy, his story is that he is rejected and abandoned by his family for being homosexual. As a result of that, he takes out his hurt on the world by writing against all pro-family people. He obsesses with what the “anti-gay” crowd says. Well, except for me – well, except today, he did write this long post to garner sympathy for himself and his eternal state of victim hood.Boy, don’t he know how to play the victim card, Such a Victim, who live in
Manhattan, NY with his His husband, who's Wedding was in Martha Steward mag, Yet a victim.
Going by his FB page he works as blogger, I can only guess he plays the stay at home wifey and his BF is the bread winner in the house.. MMM must be nice to be a kept boy… with a gold ring…
I think Jeremy should make a donation to help the Helpline, since he is the main cause why they may not get as much as they might had if he didn’t attack Chick-Fil-A for Gay INC.,
How can you tell when a Politician is lying? Their lips are moving.
Some budget Cuts and increases,
Students in public schools are facing larger class sizes and fewer resources to support learning both inside and outside the classroom. Students at public universities and community colleges are facing higher tuition, hard-working low-income parents are struggling to find affordable and quality child care options, and elderly and disabled patients are subject to reduced access to needed health services.How nice lets make sure the poor stay sick, and uneducated. let make sure single parents can’t work because they can’t afford child care. Let make sure our kids don’t get a true education.
Here is a few cuts I bet this fucking this cow and lawmakers didn’t think of.. Cut the Governor pay by 35%, and take away her fucking health care that is paid for by the state. I sure she can afford to buy her own. Then cut the lawmakers pay by 25%, or better yet fired a few of them. I doubt we need all these assholes in office, cut their staff too. Take their health care way too. Sell off 40% of state own cars, trucks and other vehicles (less of these items = less insurance and maintain costs, fuel cost as well), Sell off unused State owned Buildings and lands. I’m sure that these items could save the State a few millions, if not ten’s of millions.
The majority of these cuts, including but not limited to $900 million less for public schools, $430 million less for community colleges and public universities, and $1 billion less for Medicaid and public and mental health services, have had a very real impact on the lives of millions of North Carolinians.
