These next few videos vividly depict why we can't wait to stand up and speak out. From the death of a young boy named Larry, to a rant full of religious-based bigotry by an Oklahoma legislator who continuously co-opts the word "lifestyle," to demonize us, to our Soulforce arrest at Focus on the Family for an act of non-violence in our attempt to talk with Dr. James Dobson, the time to stop hate in America is NOW. Follow us on our 2008 journey, Talk With America, and join the conversation to help build an inclusive community in your town! Make a commitment to end backyard bigotry today by giving a dose of love to fear.
An Oklahoman lawmaker erroneously believed she was speaking to a closed audience. Unfortunately for her, someone had a recorder. Her homophobic comments never ceased, including this: “Not everybody’s lifestyle is equal, just like not all religions are equal.”
This video by Ellen about the murder of Larry, a gay boy, says it all about why we do the justice work we do.

Fox News Interview with Gay Into Straight America:

It is love that surrounds children, not the gender of the parents, that prepares them for the world, explains Dr. Pruett. He contacted Dr. Dobson asking for dialogue, and never heard back from him.
