Soulforce is a organization dedicated to the freedom of GLBT people from religious and political oppression through the practice of relentless non-violent resistance.
I stumbled upon their website by accident and was rather impressed by the work they're doing in the community and there plans to lead a march with over a thousand gay families to the front door of Focus on the Family in Colorado Springs on July 22.
Focus on the Family is headed up by the fundamentalist homophobe Dr. James Dobson. He has been instrumental in seeking the passage of the failed federal marriage amendment. I think this march is going to send a strong and clear message that the word family extends to gay and lesbian people too, and there are loving families that exists outside of the traditional family that should be acknowledge and treated equally.
Broadway star and recording artist Billy Porter will be sharing his amazing gift with a free concert on the Focus on the Family grounds. Billy's voice is so amazing! I'm trying to figure out how I can get some more time off work to get to Colorado!
This is just another example of how our community is increasing our visibility and breaking down stereotypes. I'm truly proud.
