Democrats & LGBT

Below is DNC‘s platform on LGBT which is something that I care about as a member of the LGBT community and proud supporter of LGBT rights. “Democrats believe that LGBT rights are human rights and that American foreign policy should advance the ability of all persons to live with dignity, security, and respect, regardless of who they are or who they love. We applaud President Obama’s historic Presidential Memorandum on International Initiatives to Advance the Human Rights of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered Persons, which combats criminalization, protects refugees, and provides foreign assistance. We will continue to stand with LGBT people around the world, including fighting efforts by any nation to infringe on LGBT rights or ignore abuse.” President Trump publicly admitted via his personal Twitter account (@realDonaldTrump) that he would protect and fight for the LGBT community against Hillary Clinton. As you have noticed in the “fake” news that Mr. Trump has explicitly reversed exactly what he said he would. He had instituted a ban on Transgendered persons serving in the US Military going …

Proud Democrat

I can say that I am a PROUD Democrat living in a Republican ran county. I support the Iroquois County Democrats. The Democratic Party is there for The People. While the country is in a state of mess with the Republican Commander-in-Chief and Republican led Congress, we must come together with our differences and elect our rightful officials that will stand up for us when no one will. As you see in the news and social media on the daily, our Republican ran country is ruining our country what it was founded in. We (Democrats) are the change. Currently the primary election is right before us. We as Americans have the duty to vote and elect the rightful candidates to serve and protect us ALL. Currently Iroquois County Democrats is hosting an event New Day/New New Day at Town & Country Events in Milford. You can get tickets online at their website or by messaging Iroquois Democrats on Facebook. Come meet our MC Colleen Callahan and Keynote Speaker State Treasurer Michael Frerichs. I have also …

Equality 2017

With the current president and vice president that we have curently our rights and equality are under attack and will remain under attack until they have taken away our rights that have been afforded to us by the US Supreme Court. When President Trump was running his campaign for President he promised that he would continue to fight and protect all LGBTQs and since then he has turned his back on us. We as a community must stand together and continue our fight as we have for decades as this fight will never be over especially with the conservative republicans that are controlling the government right now. I will continue to stand and show support for my community where I live and the conservatives that I’m not afraid of them.

Pride 2017

I can say that this year I won’t be attending Pride 2017 in Chicago like I had plans on doing as it was something that I wanted to do this year. But it’s ok, I am going to go to Champaign-Urbana and go to their Pride celebration and it will be the first time of me going to Pride in Champaign-Urbana during September. I am looking forward to seeing what Champaign-Urbana has to offer for Pride for events as this will be something new and exciting for me to go to this year and am looking forward to going and enjoying myself. I am going to take a couple of my friends with me so that I’m not going alone as this is something new for me as when I go somewhere new or an event that is new to me, I always go with a friend or a few friends. Although I would much rather go to a much bigger Pride celebration, but one can’t complain as I will be celebrating amongst others in …
