Your Blues Ain't Like Mine

Excellent entry on Keith Boykin's site from a black gay man's point of view comparing the civil rights movement to the gay rights movement.

I am confident that 50 years from now we will look back at this day in the same way we look back at the anniversary of Rosa Parks's courageous move. Our children and grandchildren will wonder why our society was so obsessed with perpetuating bigotry against gays and lesbians. And they will ask us which side we were on and what did we do to make a difference.

Thanks Dorsano & Stolie! I appreciate the props, but I have to give credit to Mr. Boykin. Sounds like a young gay MLK! Wouldn't that do wonders for the GLBT community?!
