I've been fortunate enough to speak withRev. Tommie L. Watkins Jr. on many occasions and I've come to find out that we have a lot in common. We were both born and raised in Alabama, both out and proud, and we share the same passion about GLBT and HIV/AIDS issues. This video clip is of him during the Equality Ride last year as he along with a group of activists marched onto the U.S. Naval Academy to speak with navy personell regarding the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy. His courage reminds me of a young Dr. King. We need more people in the black GLBT community like him.
