Pink News: 17 stunning images from the Stonewall Inn solidarity rally

WGAL: Pennsylvania AG announces lawsuit against President Trump's executive order on immigration 


  1. The Stonewall rally is all the more inspiring given that Trump himself has trodden relatively lightly where gay issues are concerned. Some, I'm sure, feel a temptation to lie low and not go all-out opposing a regime which isn't goring their own ox too much at the moment. I'm glad to see wiser heads prevailing. Solidarity is essential. Once Trump is impeached and pence takes the regime in a full-bore theocratic direction, the LGBT community will be in the crosshairs, and will need the solidarity of those it is supporting now.

    Trump is now speculating that the media is covering up terrorist attacks

    Well, they certainly haven't given much coverage to the Trumpanzee terrorist attack in Quebec.

    How many idiotic things does this dingbat have to say before even the wingnuts realize he's simply delusional?

    1. Infidel -- The fact that right-wingers have ignored all of Trump's atrocious behavior (and that of his circle) up to this point reflects poorly on their principles. I too wonder how shocking things need to get before they see him for what he is.

      Alliances between activists have always been important, but they're especially important now. No group can (or should have to) stand alone against Trump and Company.
