Fight Homophobia.

You might have seen this new video featuring Portia de Rossi, T.R. Knight, Sara Bareilles, Janet Jackson and others speaking out about homophobia. If not (and even if so), take a look:


One of my readers, Louise, and Ruth (Lizzy the Lezzy's creator) are just a few people helping to keep the new "Fight Homophobia" YOUTUBE STREAM going. They're having a sit-in that I'd love for you guys to help us out with. Just click on the url: http://www.youtube.com/stream?s=1785069568 and read their mission. We're basically keeping our browsers open to the stream throughout the day so that it will become more popular on Youtube, thus getting more exposure and helping spread the message. The videos are awesome, so check them out!

Another reader started a Lawrence King facebook tribute page that has more than 50,000 members already. If you have a Facebook account (or want to start one) you can support it by going to http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=8872347853.

Hey Arlan, here's hoping you read your comments! Thought I'd give you a heads up about Kaki King's new video... in case you don't know (what?!) she is an AMAZINGLY talented guitarist (and singer)... and she's a lady-lover too, but that's not the point. Her new single's called Pull Me Out Alive and the video has cameos from Sara Quin (yay) and Hesta Prynn from Northern State... it is flipping amazing.

this work is always important. Thanks for spreading. FYI There's a great organization in SF that helps victims of violent hate crime called CUAV or Communities United Against Violence. The have a hot line too for people that need talk about an experience they had that can be accessed around the country. (415) 333-4357 (HELP)

they took that one down due to copyright infringement...which i think is stupid and defeats the point.

but someone else uploaded it so ive replaced it with that one...i'll try to keep replacing it as long as you guys let me know when its not working. thanks!

Davina said...

Great! I am glad its working for the moment :)

Hey Arlan,
Just incase you were not aware, there is an ad promoting your interview with Missy Higgins on Facebook....it appears on the left hand side. They even talk about your 'widget' question...
You're famous!
