There is a fight for Civil Rights that has begun and will not end until we have achieved full equality. We cannot do this without education. We cannot do this without changing the minds of those who would vote against us and therefore, we cannot do this without letting our friends and loved ones know who we are.

NOW is the time when we need to come out. NOW is the time when we need to keep our friends close, and those who don’t yet know us, closer. TALK ABOUT EQUALITY. Talk about YOUR rights and YOUR human desire to marry and to spend your life with the person you choose to be with.

On the following pages, you will find information on upcoming events and stories which will give you the ability to speak out and to listen to others; some information on how to construct a conversation that will be productive and educational for both parties; and resources for those who need further assistance or for those who would like to help in other ways.

We will have our Equality. But it will not happen if we don’t TALK ABOUT IT.

If you have any questions or ideas for stories, please contact us at talkaboutequality@gmail.com

    Wow wow wow! You have some extremely powerful posts, and I’m glad I came across your blog. Equality is such an important part of North American values, yet so often ignored when it’s convenient for those who hate. Thank you for sharing your thoughts, opinions and struggle…

    Hey fellas,
    Does “Talk About Equality” have a Twitter account? I could promote you better there.

    I am a gay activist and a writer and am wondering if I might write for your website. My site is http://www.simonocorra.com

    My last queer theory publication was a chapter in Alternatives within the Mainstream 2

    Good luck to you

    Sometimes…I wonder, “what in the world am I doing?” I am an openly gay man…I have been for over 25 years…came through the gay 80’s and the 90’s and survived them with barely a scratch. This “wonder” power I have enjoyed has never served any true purpose other than to keep me afloat and out of trouble…but never for any real purpose…or to advance the cause of justice for others. The truth is, I run into people just like myself everyday…we have become ambivalent, tired, jaded, or just plain defeated. “It’s never going to change anything…or anyone! No real change can truly happen…it’s just bits and pieces here and there, and in all reality we still live in a society that is mainly homophobic…religious…prejudice…bigoted. Why bother trying…all those opposed to me (us) just living my life openly and without fear hate us anyways? They believe that their god hates us and wants us to burn in hell for not choosing a different way of life. The ignorance is out of control…the lack of reasonable processing among the masses seems hopeless. Education is definitely a game changer…but it’s people like myself…who must not sit on the sidelines waiting for other people to step up and take action! I have power…YOU have power. A whisper of doubt can become a roar of hope to transform our future when all of us come together and shout out loud…I AM PROUD! Michael Woodall
