City, community hit by Sandy Where the The superstorm made landfall Monday evening and, while Philadelphia was spared the major flooding and damage that other areas saw, the city experienced hundreds of downed trees and widespread power outages. Many LGBT organizations and businesses shut down and a number of events were cancelled. The city began moving again on Halloween, with government, schools and public transportation reopening.

The largest hurricane to ever hit the midAtlantic brought Philadelphia, and the LGBT community, to a screeching halt this week. While the city was spared much of the flooding and destruction that was seen at places like the Jersey Shore and in New York City, Hurricane Sandy forced the shuttering of city government, schools and a sea of private businesses and nonprofits — including many that cater to the LGBT community — early in the week. Among the casualties of the storm was the groundbreaking event for the proposed LGBT-friendly senior residences, which was postponed until next month. A number of service organizations also closed their doors. William Way LGBT Community Center announced Sunday, as the storm inched closer to the coast, that it would be closed both Monday and Tuesday. “It’s very rare that we close,” said center executive director Chris PAGE 28

candidates stand By PGN Staff Philadelphia voters will head to the polls Nov. 6 for a general election that will not only decide the next president of the United States, but also a number of races in the local area. Voters will select the state’s next Attorney General and Auditor General, as well as members of the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate and both chambers of the Pennsylvania legislature. Throughout the month of October, PGN reached out to all candidates in contested races on both sides of the aisle in these races. The candidates for state legislature were asked to complete a written survey on their LGBT positions, while the federal candidates were interviewed with the same set of questions via telephone or in person. AG candidate Kathleen Kane sat down with PGN for an in-person interview. Despite numerous requests, U.S. Sen. Bob Casey failed to respond for an interview. Below are summaries of the answers provided by the candidates.

PA ATTORNEY GENERAL Kathleen Kane (D)

Democratic candidate for Attorney General Kathleen Kane said she would work to protect the rights of all Pennsylvanians, including LGBTs, if elected. Kane said that she would decline to defend the state’s KANE Defense of Marriage Act in court as she considers it unconstitutional, the same reasoning behind the Obama administration’s move to stop defending the federal DOMA. She supports marriage equality, secondparent adoption and the inclusion of sexual orientation and gender identity in the state’s nondiscrimination law. Kane said that, as PAGE 12

Which out candidates could join Sims in PA House? By PGN Staff Brian Sims is set to become Pennsylvania’s first openly LGBT state lawmaker, as he is running unopposed next week, after having won the April primary against longtime LGBT ally Rep. Babette Josephs. When Sims is sworn in in January, he could be joined by up to three other LGBT legislators: Christopher Dietz, Kelly McEntee or Jeffrey Dahlander. The trio represents different districts throughout different parts of the state, but all have waged tireless campaigns against longtime Republican incumbents. Each candidate spoke with PGN about his or her campaign and goals should they reach the halls of Harrisburg.

Jeffrey Dahlander While becoming one of the first out state lawmakers in Pennsylvania would be a milestone, Dahlander’s s ex u a l o r i entation has played little role in his campaign to represent the 111th District. Dahlander, 39, is challenging Republican Rep. Sandra Major, who has held the district — which encompasses Susquehanna County in Northern Pennsylvania — since 1995. Dahlander, who in his day job assists those victimized by financial fraud, said that having LGBT representation would be especially important for the younger generation. “For younger people to see someone who is proud of who they are is very important,” he said. “It demonstrates that anyone can accomplish anything. I think visibility is important, just like for any other marginalized group.” He said he would work for LGBT equality in practical, small steps. “I look forward to making sure that we are a protected class in Pennsylvania and have the same protections other groups do.” Dahlander is an active supporter of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network and said the organization can be an important resource for Pennsylvania schools. A graduate of Penn State, he volunteered for an HIV/AIDS group at the university and said he’d be eager to refocus attention on the epidemic, if elected. “It’s almost as if the younger generation has forgotten that it exists,” the candidate said, addint that “education, especially in

rural areas, is needed to foster HIV/AIDS prevention. In terms of equal-rights legislation, Dahlander said that, while he’ll respect the views of all district residents, he will oppose measures that limit rights. “I look at the constituents and what their priorities are,” he said. “I will not support legislation that restricts anyone’s rights.” In addition to LGBT work, Dahlander said he plans to focus on enhancing education in the Keystone State. “We have excellent public-school systems, and one of my goals is to make sure everyone has the same opportunity to an education,” he said. “I want to get us back to where our schools are not only adequate, but funded and successful.” Dahlander said that running against an entrenched Republican incumbent has been a challenge, but he’s grateful for the vast support he has received. “I’ve had excellent support,” he said. “I’ve received support from everyday people who just want their voices to be heard.” Dahlander has been endorsed by Liberty City LGBT Democratic Club and Equality Pennsylvania.

Christopher Dietz Dietz hopes that, come January, he will be sworn in as one of the first out lawmakers in the state. D i e t z , 37, is the Democratic nominee for state representative for the 104th District, in Dauphin County. He is challenging Republican incumbent Sue Helm, in office since 2006. The district has been represented by a Republican since its inception in 1969. Dietz said it is not only time for a Democratic voice in the county, but for LGBT voices in the legislature. “I think with any group, there needs to be someone to work in the legislature to advance any topic,” he said. “It is great to have a representative at the table. We’ve never had that in the LGBT community in Pennsylvania. It is crucial that we are there.” Dietz, who has been engaged to his partner for more than four years, said he will fight for marriage equality but acknowledged that it will be a process. “We have come a long way and there have been a lot of people fighting for it. I want to work with the LGBT Caucus to reach out to all people to know that we’re

every bit as boring as they are. We go to the movies, we go bowling, we do all of the same things. Marriage, for me, is more of an affirmation to the public of this relationship that I have, that it exists. Having legal recognition of that will go a long way.” One of his other priorities is to enhance education and end bullying. Dietz has participated in anti-bullying workshops at his local school district, which included segments for teachers, students and parents. “We want an environment where kids won’t have to go through those type of things. I think it is important that we do work within the schools so that kids get the idea that bullying is not appropriate.” The candidate said he hopes to work on the issue legislatively to make sure that anti-bullying training is present in schools. Dietz also plans to tackle job creation, an issue that has impacted his own life: He was laid off from his job as a product engineer for a year. “I know what it was like looking for work: It isn’t an easy thing to do,” he said. Dietz has worked within his hometown of Millersburg to promote tourism by collaborating with local businesses, and said he will work on reforms to repeal automatic pay raises. “I went door-to-door campaigning and heard a lot of people talk about the raises and how out of touch [the legislature is],” he said. Dietz also plans to work within the realm of public education. “Last year, nearly a billion dollars was cut from public education. I will do my best to restore that funding,” he said. “I am going to stand up and make sure that our kids are successful in the future.” While it has been challenging getting his name recognized against a sixyear incumbent, Dietz said he has been able to reach a wealth of voters and has seen LGBT support locally and nationally: He was endorsed by Victory Fund, Equality Pennsylvania and Capital Region Stonewall Democrats. “I couldn’t be happier with the support I have been given from the LGBT community,” he said.

Kelly McEntee McEntee is running for the 105th congressional district against a Republican incumbent who has been in office more than

two decades. If elected, she’ll be the first openly gay female state lawmaker in Pennsylvania — but that isn’t why she’s running. “The fact that I am a lesbian was an afterthought to running,” she said. “I am primarily running because I see inefficiency in the government.” However, McEntee, 50, would be proud to represent the LGBT community in the legislature. “I think the fact that we haven’t had any voices for the LGBT community in our legislature is a disadvantage for us. It is important for people to know we are just like them, with the same concerns for our neighborhood and friends.” McEntee said she considers discrimination to be the top issue facing the LGBT community, and would look forward to working to include sexual orientation and gender identity in the state’s nondiscrimination law. McEntee would also be an advocate for the anti-conversion therapy bill that was recently introduced by outgoing state Rep. Babette Josephs (D-182nd Dist.). “The most important thing to do is talk to colleagues about realities of conversion therapy, give them facts and let them know that it is not a valid type of therapy,” she said. Suicide prevention is something that has affected McEntee’s personal life, prompting advocacy work that she said would continue in the legislature, including a push for anti-bullying legislation to include sexual orientation and gender identity. “For me, that is something that sets me out as different,” she said. “I want to be a voice for mental health and suicide prevention.” McEntee would also work for locallevel action on HIV/AIDS issues. “HIV/AIDS prevention education needs to be included in the counties and it needs to have funding so that it is visible to everyone,” she said. McEntee said she would advocate for marriage equality by having her own relationship as a visible model. “My partner and I are an example in the community and I would take that opportunity to point out to others the rights that we don’t have because we are not legally married,” she said. “It is the best thing we can do in our state.” Some of McEntee’s non-LGBT-focused priorities include public education, economic growth and infrastructure. The candidate said fundraising has been the biggest challenge of her campaign. She has, however, seen support from some unexpected sectors. “Women Republicans are very receptive to having a woman in the legislature,” she said. McEntee was endorsed by Equality Pennsylvania and Capital Region Stonewall Democrats. ■

PAC to mayor: We need more commissioners By Timothy Cwiek timothy@epgn.com The city’s Police Advisory Commission has fewer than half of its allotted number of commissioners, and it’s calling on Mayor Nutter to make new appointments. “We need some new blood,” openly gay commissioner Chuck Volz said at the PAC’s Oct. 22 meeting. The PAC is a civilian-oversight agency that investigates allegations of police misconduct and, when appropriate, makes recommendations for remedial action. The panel’s highest-profile LGBT case involves Nizah Morris, a transgender woman who was found with a fatal head wound in 2002 shortly after receiving a courtesy ride from Philadelphia police. Her homicide remains unsolved. The PAC is supposed to have 15 commissioners and four alternate commissioners. But over the course of about two years, 10 members have resigned. Now, the panel is down to nine commissioners. The PAC also doesn’t have an executive director due to the departure of head William M. Johnson in July. Kelvyn Anderson is serving as interim director while the agency searches for a permanent head. Anderson previously served as deputy director of the PAC. The PAC needs at least five commissioners at a public meeting for a quorum, so official business can take place. At last week’s meeting, only four commissioners were present, so no official business could take place. But during the meeting, PAC members informally discussed various items on their agenda. At press time, Mark McDonald, a spokesperson for Nutter, had no comment on when the PAC vacancies would be filled. According to a 1993 executive order establishing the PAC, Philadelphia City Council also helps select commissioners. But any potential commissioners selected by City Council are vetted by the Nutter administration, to ensure they’re in compliance with basic eligibility requirements. Kathleen R. Padilla, a local transgender activist, expressed hope that a member of the transgender community would be appointed to the PAC. Padilla served on the body between 2005-06, but resigned after becoming employed by the city. “The reasons for diverse representation on a public body are well known,” Padilla said. “They are no different for trans Philadelphians than any other group. The PAC has reviewed and substanti-

ated several cases involving transgender Philadelphians. And one of their longest and most notable unresolved cases involves the homicide of a trans woman [Morris].” Padilla said a qualified transgender commissioner would enhance the effectiveness of the PAC. “The PAC’s work will only benefit from having an appropriate appointee from the trans community to foster community relations, assist the PAC in understanding the issues that trans petitioners may bring for investigation, and provide the PAC credibility with this community in its dealings that affect us,” she added. “The work is very analytical, detailed and requires knowledge of legal concepts and management in a bureaucracy. Someone with a law degree would be ideal. But anyone with significant professional experience and advocacy experience could fill the role.” McDonald, the spokesperson for Nutter, had no comment on whether a transgender person would be appointed to the PAC. At the Oct. 22 meeting, the commissioners discussed the Morris case. They said they’re hoping to issue a report about the incident in the coming months. The PAC is trying to determine whether police violated any departmental regulations when handling the incident. The commissioners have stated repeatedly that they want to review the totality of evidence prior to issuing a report. But their ability to do that has been called into question, because the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office refuses to account for a police log in the case. The document could help explain why Officers Thomas Berry, Kenneth Novak and Elizabeth Skala thought Morris wasn’t a 911 target at the time of the ride. Because of that apparent mistake, the ride wasn’t documented — even after the officers visited Morris at Jefferson University Hospital, where she was braindead due to a fractured skull. At the meeting, PAC members questioned the quality of the homicide investigation in the Morris case. But they stopped short of saying they’ll try to get the log from the DA’s office — or get certification that it doesn’t have the log. On another subject, PAC members said they’re looking into the possibility of competitive bidding for legal work needed by the agency, rather than giving the work exclusively to the Center City law firm of Montgomery McCracken Walker & Rhoads LLP. PAC members said they’re hoping to hire a Spanish-speaking investigator, and competitive bidding for the legal work could save money and help fund the new position. ■

A local LGBT agency is celebrating a decade of paving the way for Philadelphia to emerge as a leader in the LGBT tourism market. The Philadelphia Gay Tourism Caucus will celebrate its 10th anniversary next month. The organization got its start in 2002 thanks to John Cochie, innkeeper of the Alexander Inn. While attending an event with the International Gay and Lesbian Tourism Association in Key West, Fla., Cochie learned about the small but growing number of hotels that were reaching out to the LGBT community — and saw an area where Philadelphia could capitalize. “We have the arts, great dining, nice shopping, we have sports, we have a vibrant nightlife for the gay community compared to other cities,” he said. Following his return to Philadelphia, Cochie brought together members of the Greater Philadelphia Tourism and Marketing Corporation and state tourism officials. “What was amazing to me was the mission was never in question,” Cochie said. “We weren’t quite sure what we were going to do or where we were going to go, but everyone decided that this was worth

discussion.” With the backing of CEO Meryl Levitz, GPTMC provided the fledgling group a three-year, $1.3-million grant to start PGTC. “It started with an idea in one person’s brain,” said PGTC vice president and former president Tami Sortman. That idea blossomed into an effort that has brought t o g e t h e r L G B Towned businesses from throughout the area to take an active role in branding the city as a welcoming place for LGBT visitors and businesses, which has resulted in the city rapidly climbing a number of lists designating top LGBT destinations. According to Sortman, at the very beginning, the caucus was not memberbased but just a group of people informally meeting around a table. Two years into its founding, Sortman was voted in as its first president The caucus has nearly 100 members. One of the agency’s most worthwile accomplishments has been its installation of rainbow signage throughout the Gayborhood. It took Sortman and her crew

two years to get the signage approved; she had to work with the LGBT Affairs Office, the Streets Department and other city agencies to secure approval. “It was a crazy amount of work, people and red tape to go through,” she said. When the signs went up, there was one challenge organizers didn’t foresee. “I never thought in a million years that the LGBT community would be against it,” Sortman Photo: Scott A. Drake said. “When the signs went up, we received death threats, angry letters — people felt like the signs were marking them with pink triangles. They felt targeted.” Now, however, the signs have become well-accepted and are a natural pairing with the GPTMC’s “Get Your History Straight and Your Nightlife Gay” advertising campaign, on which PGTC partnered. The campaign began in 2003 and has since undergone several evolutions. After the original ads began airing, Sortman received hate mail from churches and right-wing activists. “People were even threatening to move out of the city,” she said. That campaign was something the LGBT community embraced immediately. “We had people coming from all over. We had international travelers using Philadelphia as their destination when it was always originally New York,” she said. “It was an embracing situation. We went from being a city in the top 20 to the top 10 in LGBT destinations.” PGTC’s Gay Sensitivity Training, in which caucus members offer LGBT diversity lessons to hospitality officials throughout the region, also made the organization stand out in the business world. Most recently, the organization’s decade of accomplishments was honored with the 2012 Gilbert Baker OutProud Award at OutFest. “It was the most exhilarating feeling ever,” Sortman said. The past 10 years of work will be hailed at an anniversary event later this month, during which PGTC will present its Absolutely Fabulous award to Jeff Guaracino, PGTC founding member and former GPTMC staffer. Sortman said she hopes to see PGTC help Philadelphia break into the top-five list of LGBT destinations, which can further the city’s reputation among LGBT and mainstream organizations from around the world. “I want Philadelphia to get bigger and better groups of people to come and hold big events, meetings and conventions,” she said. “It’s something we are really striving for.” ■

Philly to stage fundraising leather event By Angela Thomas angela@epgn.com A Pride event is returning to Philadelphia next month — and it’s not your typical rainbow-covered festival. The Philadelphia Leather Pride will run from Nov. 8-11 at venues throughout the city. This year’s Pride will play host to a new art exhibit and new workshops. Last year, the event raised more than $10,000. The 2012 beneficiaries include William Way LGBT Community Center, Carter/Johnson Library, The Leather Leadership Conference and several others. According to Jen Vrana, producer of Philly Leather Pride, the event started in 2009 as just a five-hour fundraiser. “I was the first mid-Atlantic leather woman in 2009 and I was required to do a fundraiser during my title year,” Vrana said. She created Philly Leather Pride Night, which was held at Voyeur (then named Pure). As the years went on, the event grew into its current multi-day format. Vrana said the event has different work-

shops every year but one aspect that stays the same is the presence of the Carter/Johnson Leather Library, which was created by Vi Johnson and her partner, Jill. The traveling library contains historical documents relating to the leather/fetish/S&M community and will be displayed at William Way, 1315 Spruce St. “We’re the only city in the country that can bring in the entire 14,000-piece traveling library,” Vrana said. This year’s workshops include a panel called Back in The Day, 12:30-2:30 p.m. Nov. 10 at the center, which will feature three men and three women sharing stories of their lengthy histories in the leather/ fetish/kink lifestyle. The event will also feature a new, fluffier class this year. A special event titled “Bring Your Pup to the Library” will teach attendees about human puppy play. “It is absolutely adorable watching it,” Vrana said. The class will be held from 3-4:15 p.m. Nov. 10 at William Way. Pride will feature a new exhibit by artist Sir Nagrom Morgan Monceaux. “Pages from a Black Leatherman’s Journal” is a

New Facebook app aims to engage LGBT tourists By Angela Thomas angela@epgn.com With Philadelphia rapidly emerging as a top LGBT tourism destination — and Facebook rapidly emerging as a realistic business tool — the local tourism bureau has turned to the social-media site to help promote the City of Brotherly Love to LGBT visitors. The Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corporation debuted its first LGBT-focused Facebook application on Oct. 30. The application features a personality quiz that allows visitors to find out which local neighborhood fits them best. Neighborhoods include the Gayborhood, Old City, Rittenhouse, Benjamin Franklin Parkway, East Passyunk and New Hope. The quiz also g iv e s v i s i t o r s a chance to win tickets to the Lady Gaga concert in February and a weekend stay in Philadelphia. Visitors must like

GPTMC’s LGBT page, “Visit Gay Philly,” in order to take the quiz. GPTMC director of public relations Bruce Yelk said the corporation thought the app would be a good way to attract new Facebook supporters to learn about the city’s LGBT tourism efforts. “We were trying to get more engagement and interaction to the page,” he said. “As Facebook keeps changing their rules, it gets harder and harder to reach our fans.” GPTMC also has utilized other social-networking sites, such as Pinterest, Foursquare and Foodspotting, to promote Philadelphia tourism. Yelk said he hopes to see more LGBTinclusive apps for the corporation in the future. For more information, visit http://www. facebook.com/VisitGayPhilly. Participants must complete the quiz by Nov. 13 for a chance to win tickets. Applicants can take the quiz multiple times, but will only be entered into the contest once. ■

40-piece exhibition of journal entries displayed at William Way Nov. 8-12 and is free to all guests. Nagrom said that actually seeing the exhibition take life has been one of his proudest moments since he started the series in 1998. Vrana first saw Nagrom’s work in 2002 at American Brotherhood Weekend in Washington, D.C., and again at the Visionary Arts Museum in Baltimore, Md. “He is a very talented artist and very different,” Vrana said. Nagrom said his work ties right into the event. “What I’m doing is showing a perspective of a leather lifestyle from a man of color’s perspective. That is what my journal is about — a subculture. A black man living a leather life 24/7 in the leather community and also in mainstream,” Nagrom said. Leather Pride Weekend will culminate in Saturday’s Leather Pride Night, 6 p.m.midnight at Voyeur, 1221 St. James St. The event will be emceed by International Ms. Leather 1996 Jill Carter and will feature a leather-archive exhibit, bootblacks, a pup zone, a silent auction and raffle prizes. The event will be followed by an after-party at

Bike Stop, 206 S. Quince St., from 11 p.m.2 a.m. Vrana said the event averages 250-300 attendees every year for the Saturday-night activities alone. Last year, more than 500 people attended events held in the William Way. She hopes to have more this year. Vrana said the organization sold weekend sponsorships and program-book advertisements to make sure that most events were free, including those held in the William Way and access to the Carter/Johnson Library. “It is very important, especially in today’s economy, people don’t have that much expendable money,” Vrana said. Vrana said that attendees don’t need to be part of the leather community to enjoy the event. She welcomes all those who are curious or questioning. Participants are coming from as far as Los Angeles, in addition to New York City, Washington. D.C., and Maryland. “I’d say the city is going to be filled with leather men and women that weekend,” Vrana said. For more information, visit www.plpn. org. ■

A government agency in New Jersey determined last week that a religious group violated the state’s nondiscrimination law when it barred a lesbian couple from using its property for a civil-union ceremony. The New Jersey Division on Civil Rights ruled Oct. 23 that the Ocean Grove Camp Meeting Association illegally discriminated against Luisa Paster and Harriet Bernstein in 2007. An administrative-law judge found earlier this year, after the couple filed suit against the association, that there was probable cause that the entity had broken the LGBT-inclusive law; the case was forwarded to the civil-rights agency for a final decision. Division director Craig Sashihara had the ability to reject, modify or adopt the judge’s ruling, and ultimately went with the latter option. The New Jersey chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union handled the lawsuit. Lawrence Lustberg, who represented the couple for ACLU-NJ, praised the ruling. “This decision reaffirms a central principle of fairness in our society: If you receive a public subsidy to run your facility, it has to be open to everyone, regardless of sexual orientation,” Lustberg said in a statement. Paster and Bernstein said in a joint statement that they were “thrilled” with the ruling. “[OGCMA has] lost on every level,” they said. Garden State Equality chair Steven Goldstein called the ruling “eminently fair and just.” The couple did not seek financial restitution in their suit, so the association will emerge from the litigation with only a warning from the Division on Civil Rights. The association, which describes itself as a religious organization, had long rented out its boardwalk pavilion for weddings. Paster and

Bernstein, residents of nearby Neptune, applied in 2007 to use the property for their ceremony but, days later, their application fee was returned with little explanation. After the couple was denied access to the property and went public with their case, the association stopped using the pavilion for unions. The association, which has a nonprofit status, had for years received a tax exemption from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. Following the Paster and Bernstein incident, however, the agency denied the association’s tax exemption, as it found it was not complying with the stipulation that its property must be open to all people equally. Goldstein noted, however, that there is still “a long road ahead” in educating all public and private New Jersey entities on the laws involving LGBT discrimination. “It’s important to remember the essential fact of this case,” Goldstein told PGN this week. “The plaintiffs and the LGBT community as a whole have never been looking to dictate what should be done on anyone’s private land. But ruling after ruling has conferred that this is public property that has received government funding. You cannot discriminate on public property that receives government funding. Period.” The Camp Meeting Association will have 30 days to appeal the ruling. The association describes itself as a Methodist ministry. It owns much of the land in the small North Jersey town, which borders LGBT enclave Asbury Park. Earlier this year, the group was back in the headlines for hosting an event with antigay actor Kirk Cameron.

William Way launches new fundraising program By Jen Colletta jen@epgn.com William Way LGBT Community Center has launched a unique fundraising model to support one of its most unique services. The center is enlisting Citizen Philanthropists to assist in raising money that will fund its Peer Counseling Program. The counseling program, a one-of-a-kind in the region, allows community members to receive free sessions from a trained peer counselor. While the program is provided free of charge, it does require expenditures on training and other elements. To meet those costs, the center has partnered with Citizen Effect, which works to empower individual volunteers to fundraise for philanthropic efforts. Its new Philly4Philly initiative is aiming to round up 150 CPs to give of their time to make a difference for deserving nonprofits. Center executive assistant Paul Blore said board member Rudy Flesher introduced the board to the concept, which Citizen Effect has employed in other cities. Earlier this year, Blore, development director Michael Pomante and others visited a Philly4Philly CP recruitment event and connected with an organizer. “We got the chance to speak about our work, and while they didn’t have a specific LGBT focus, they do have a focus on men-

tal health,” Blore said. With the partnership, both Citizen Effect and William Way will work on recruiting CPs and have already signed up five — halfway to the goal of 10. Each CP will aim to raise $1,365, enough to support the training and recruitment of one peer counselor. The Peer Counseling Program provides up to eight sessions of non-clinical counseling, with no fee or medical insurance needed. The program is specifically designed for those who lack insurance and thus could be prevented from seeking clinical counseling, as well as those who are hesitant to disclose their sexual orientation or HIV status to a provider. The counselors, who are overseen by a licensed clinical psychologist, can provide referrals for further services. The center brings on a new class of peer counselors each year, although counselors are given the option of remaining on for more than a year. Blore said the CP role is an innovative way for center supporters to give back to the organization and the community. “This is a chance for people who support us to take it upon themselves to go the extra step,” he said.

Creep of the Week

D’Anne Witkowski

Mitt Romney

Editorial

Endorsements This year’s endorsements come from the reality that the Republican Party in Pennsylvania has become so extreme and so aligned with the Tea Party, we need to support our Democratic candidates to ensure progress. All one has to do is look at Republican nominee for U.S. Senate Tom Smith, who personally started his own Tea Party chapter. The Tea Party policies are not only anti-LGBT equality and anti-women’s health, but they would add to the burdens of the middle class and those less fortunate in the commonwealth. We strongly endorse Bob Casey for re-election, if for only one point: We cannot allow the U.S. Senate to fall into the hands of the Republican Party. Doing so could end hopes for repealing the Defense of Marriage Act and any chance of getting the Employment Nondiscrimination Act to the floor. As for the presidential race, President Obama is the most LGBT-friendly leader in the history of the United States. You should be ashamed to vote for anyone else. When it comes to the U.S. House of Representatives, we in Philadelphia are lucky to have Robert Brady, Chaka Fattah and Allyson Schwartz, all of whom have a 100-percent voting record on our issues, according to the Human Rights Campaign. Unfortunately, Republicans Mike Fitzpatrick, Jim Gerlach and, most disappointing, Pat Meehan, have not proven to be supporters of equality; therefore, we are supporting their opponents Kathryn Boockvar, Manan Trivedi and George Badey. The most exciting race is for that of attorney general. Kathleen Kane is a proven prosecutor who believes in equality, and would be the first woman to be elected attorney general in our state. It is time to put a check on the guys in Harrisburg, and we fully endorse her. Treasurer Rob McCord has been a beacon of equality. He not only supports LGBT rights, but has been in the vanguard of multi-culturalism in the commonwealth. As for the state legislature, we are supporting the re-election of Sens. Larry Farnese and Daylin Leach, who have proven to be among our strongest allies. In the House, Reps. James Roebuck, Kevin Boyle and Brendan Boyle also have our support, as does challenger William Dunbar. Again, we cannot endore a single Republican in the state legislature races. Brian Sims is poised to become our first out state lawmaker. He could be joined by up to three fellow LGBT candidates: Chris Dietz, Kelly McEntee and Jeffrey Dahlander, all of whom have our strong backing. Delaware could also see the election of its first out lawmakers. Andrew Staton and Marie Mayor are running for Delaware Senate and House seats, respectively, and PGN supports both of their candidacies. ■

Election Day is fast approaching and for lesbian and gay Americans, the choice for president is stark. Now, I know there are gays and lesbians who are going to vote for Mitt Romney. They are likely to claim that they aren’t “single-issue voters” and that there are more important things in the world than “gay marriage.” To them I say, no shit. I don’t think any gay or lesbian voter is a singleissue voter since gays and lesbians come from all socio-economic backgrounds, all races and ethnicities, all religions, all ... well, you get the picture. But I’d also like to point out that this isn’t just about marriage: This is about whether or not the next president of the United States considers gays and lesbians as equal citizens deserving of respect or whether he considers them to be less than human. Look, on the one hand, you’ve got President Barack Obama, a guy who believes that samesex couples should be allowed to get legally married, wants to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act, got rid of “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell,” supports the Employment Nondiscrimination Act, extended rights to LGBT people and their partners to allow them to visit each other in the hospital and make medical decisions for one other, and made an “It Gets Better” video in which he said to LGBT youth being bullied, “You are not alone. There are people out there who love you and care about you just the way you are.” And that’s only a partial list. All of these things show that Obama thinks LGBT people are, you know, human and stuff. And then you’ve got Mitt Romney, who wants to write discrimination against gay and lesbian couples into the United States Constitution, thinks DOMA is just peachy, believes federal employment-discrimination protections are just for straight people, mourns the loss of DADT, would no doubt love to appoint Supreme Court justices to

set equality back decades, and thinks that gays and lesbians have no business having or raising children. Positions that don’t coincide with respecting LGBT people as, well, people. Again, this isn’t going to stop some LGBT people from voting for Romney. And it’s a free country (granted, it’s not as free for LGBT people, but hey, these aren’t “single-issue voters” here) and you can vote for anybody you want. But, I propose that these folks should wear an “I hate my LGBT self” shirt to the polls. Or at least a button. Because pulling the lever/filling in the dot/ connecting the lines/doing the Hokey Pokey and turning yourself around (or whatever the ballot method at your polling place) for Romney is more than just a vote for president (and vice president, if you count the also-terrible-forLGBT-people Ryan), it’s a vote for a party with a platform that fundamentally devalues LGBT people. Just take a look at the Republican Party platform: Reinstate DADT, amend the constitution to ban marriage equality, keep gays and lesbians from adopting children, keep and strengthen DOMA forever and ever amen, protect the “civil rights” of antigay “religious believers.” All while claiming that the GOP is all about “respect and dignity” for all. Bullshit. You need look no further than the parade of lunacy in the form of antigay Republican candidate after candidate in this election, in the last election, in the election before that. If you keep voting for these creeps, then you’re not only part of the problem, you’re actively working against the solution. ■

Again, this isn’t going to stop some LGBT people for voting for Romney. And it’s a free country (granted, it’s not as free for LGBT people, but hey, these aren’t “single-issue voters” here) and you can vote for anybody you want.

I really think Gavin Austin it would have student cost Obama Washington Square some support West if he brought it up. I give Romney credit for not trying to use it as a wedge against Obama.”

“Yes. I would have liked it touched upon, even briefly. It shouldn’t have been ignored completely. There was no Michael Grant acknowledge- student ment whatCenter City soever. That didn’t sit well with me. I would have appreciated some clarity about their positions on LGBT issues.”

“Yes. We’re a significant part of the population. There’s an ongoing national discussion about our rights. The Emmanuel debates Ilarraza should have jeweler reflected that. South Philadelphia Instead, it was like we didn’t exist. Or that nobody’s been listening to us for all these years.”

“Yes. I think it would have helped Obama if Romney was asked about his position on LGBT rights. Romney’s Angela Peterdi true colors student would have Bella Vista been exposed. He’s opposite of where a lot of people stand on the issue. I’m for Obama.”

Letters and Feedback Row-office candidates matter In this high-media election, it is easy to pay attention only to the races at the top. It is easy to understand the difference between President Obama and Gov. Romney on LGBT equality. It is easy to figure out which Congressional candidate is best suited to represent our community. But there are three races this year that are a bit more complex, and yet have an incredible amount of importance to the future of LGBT equality in Pennsylvania. If we want to win marriage equality in Pennsylvania, then having statewide elected officials who support marriage equality is an important starting place. Currently, we have just one, State Treasurer Rob McCord. But after this election, we have the possibility of three: Treasurer McCord, Attorney General candidate Kathleen Kane and Auditor General candidate Eugene DePasquale. All three are endorsed by Equality Pennsylvania. For anyone wondering why these seats

matter, please remember that all three offices are independently elected and, to varying degrees, are able to hold Gov. Corbett accountable. Also, please remember that all three of these candidates could seek higher office at some point. McCord, Kane and DePasquale all support marriage equality, LGBT-inclusive nondiscrimination and LGBT-affirming anti-bullying policies in public schools, and they have all been public about their support for our issues. If they all win, it will mean that every Pennsylvania row office will have our communities’ interest in mind. We need to re-elect Barack Obama, and we need to support our great candidates for the PA House, Senate and the U.S. Congress, but we can’t forget about our row office candidates. Please support them on Election Day. Adrian Shanker President. Equality Pennsylvania

Attorney General, she would push to have the legislature pass a hate-crimes law that would include the LGBT community. She said she would make her office “one of inclusiveness and acceptance” and would support youth being able to access LGBT information at public schools. Kane said she would institute programs within the AG’s Office to protect youth from online predators whose staffers would be “specially trained and would be proactive rather than reactive.” Kane believes that education, especially through community-outreach programs, can be important in preventing cyber crimes. “These programs will reach children and teens in the LGBT community and let them know they have a place to go if something like that is occurring to them. They need to know how to protect themselves and where to go for help,” she said. “They need to be confident that somebody is there to help them.” Kane said she would defend the freedoms of all Pennsylvanians. “I would make sure that I used the position of Attorney General to speak up for the constitutional rights of all people — it doesn’t matter what party they are, what sexual orientation they are, what gender they are — all people need to be protected,” she said. Kane was endorsed by Equality Pennsylvania.

PA SENATE

1st Dist. Larry Farnese (D) Since taking office in 2009, state Sen. Larry Farnese has taken the lead on a number of LGBT issues. He was the prime sponsor on the Senate version of the measure to include sexual orientation and genFARNESE der identity in the state’s nondiscrimination law. He cosponsored the proposed LGBT-inclusive hate-crimes law. Farnese, an original member of the LGBT Equality Caucus, is one of just three senators to cosponsor the proposed marriage-equality bill. He is in favor of repealing the state’s Defense of Marriage Act and has also been a vocal opponent in the efforts to amend the state constitution to limit marriage to one man and one woman. Farnese supports LGBT inclusion in anti-bullying measures. He said he has also worked on issues involving full health-care rights for all and funding for the state’s welfare programs, which he said could impact LGBT populations, among many others.

He said he appreciates the LGBT support he’s received. “I have been honored in previous campaigns to have had a strong support from the LGBT community and would not have been successful without it,” he said. “I will continue to speak out on progressive issues that we all care about and work to improve the quality of life for everyone.” Farnese was endorsed by Liberty City LGBT Democratic Club and Equality Pennsylvania. 17th Dist. Daylin Leach (D) State Sen. Daylin Leach, founding member of the LGBT Equality Caucus, has been in office since 2009. Leach, who is in favor of marriage equality, supports repealing the state’s Defense of LEACH Marriage Act. He introduced the state’s first marriage-equality bill in 2009 and organized support in the Pennsylvania Judiciary Committee to block the proposed constitutional amendment to limit marriage to between one man and one woman.

Leach supports efforts to include sexual orientation and gender identity in the state’s nondiscrimination and hate-crimes laws. He said he “would be interested to learn how we could champion policies that would help LGBT business owners.” Leach said he would work to instate policies that effectively discourage bullying of all students and would seek to provide access to health care, tools and education to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS. Leach credits equal-rights issues as his reason for taking on a career in public service. “I believe the struggle to give members of the LGBT community their equal rights as citizens continues a longer fight to ensure that all Americans have access to the same opportunities, and I am proud to be a part of it,” he said. Leach was endorsed by the Liberty City LGBT Democratic Club and Equality Pennsylvania.

and said it is not in Pennsylvania’s best interest to bar same-sex couples from having access to the benefits that heterosexual couples have. He is in favor of repealing the state’s Defense of Marriage Act. “I feel that [the law] is a barrier to equality for members of the LGBT community,” he said. He supports equal adoption rights for LGBT parents. “Sexual orientation should not factor into the assessment of parents any more than race or other factors that do not speak to the parenting skills of someone wishing to adopt,” he said. The unemployment rate and current economy make the extension of the inheritance-tax exemption to same-sex couples even more important, Boyle said. “It is not only the right thing to ensure basic fairness under state law, but also because it would guarantee that income goes back into the pockets of taxpayers to pay their bills or otherwise stimulate our economy,” he said. Boyle said he would support efforts to ensure equal rights for LGBT business owners. “There are two major ways in which equality for LGBT business owners must be protected: the licensure and permit process, and the availability of public and private loans,” he said. If re-elected, he said he will continue to be an advocate of equal protection under

the law. “People of all sexual orientations and lifestyle choices should have the same opportunities as everyone else,” he said. 177th Dist. William Dunbar (D) William Dunbar hopes to bring new blood to the 177th Dist. by unseating longtime Republican Rep. John Taylor. Dunbar said he is a strong supporter of same-sex marriage and would advocate for marDUNBAR riage equality. “[Marriage] is a right that should not just be provided to some but to all,” he said. Dunbar opposes the effort to amend the state constitution to limit marriage to one woman and one man, which his opponent has voted for. Dunbar would support policies to allow LGBT couples to become foster or adoptive parents. “The most important thing is that foster children and those children seeking to be adopted get into families that care for them and their well-being,” he said. “Just because you are an LGBT individual in no

Philadelphia Gay News www.epgn.com Nov. 2-8, 2012

way means you are not capable of becoming a parent and raising a family.” Dunbar supports the inclusion of sexual orientation and gender identity in the state’s hate-crime law. “Groups that are identified under the state hate-crimes law have typically had a long history of discrimination and, as such, this law is undoubtedly necessary,” he said. “This law is in place to protect those groups, and the LGBT community should be no different.” Dunbar would work to extend the state’s inheritance-tax exemption to same-sex couples. He said the state needs to better address the HIV/AIDS epidemic, especially in minority populations. “We appear to be taking a step back by attempting to defund programs such as Planned Parenthood that work around the clock to get these messages out to the public and work to eradicate these issues,” he said. Dunbar said he has a “passion to work to ensure that everyone, no matter race, gender, nationality, religion or sexual orientation, has the same rights and opportunities as everyone else has.” 188th Dist. James Roebuck (D) State Rep. James Roebuck said he would continue his LGBT advocacy if reelected.

Roebuck said he would support efforts to introduce enhanced prevention and education in regard to the HIV/AIDS epidemic, as well as funding for those programs. Roebuck said that in his 27 years as a member of Pennsylvania’s legislature, he has always supported the LGBT community. PAGE 14 “I have carried

U.S. HOUSE 1st Dist. Bob Brady (D)

Congressman Bob Brady said he has been an ardent supporter of the LGBT community throughout his 14year tenure in the House. Brady supports marriage equality. “You love who you want to love,” he BRADY said. He backs President Obama on his stance of no longer defending the Defense of Marriage Act in court. He asserted that no one should face discrimination, which is why he has long supported and voted for the Employment Nondiscrimination Act and the Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Act. “It is a human rights issue. No matter

the sexual orientation — nobody should be harassed, punished or hurt,” Brady said. That notion extends to youth, he said. “Nobody should be bullied. I know that the gay community, in particular LGBT students, get picked on and that is just wrong.” Brady noted he has also been a big supporter of the LGBT-friendly senior housing project. Brady said he would continue to work on behalf of the community if re-elected. “They couldn’t get a better advocate,” he said. “I’ve been supporting the LGBT community since before I entered Congress.” Brady was endorsed by Liberty City LGBT Democratic Club. John Featherman (R) John Featherman describes himself as a socially liberal and fiscally conservative Republican. He said that, at times, others judge him because of his political party. “I’ve been [for marriage equality] since I started in FEATHERMAN politics in 1996,” Featherman said. “For me, it’s always

Are you taking care of yourself? How’s your health and well-being?

been a question of equality. Treat all people equally.” If elected, Featherman would work to convince other Republicans that marriage equality is not a partisan issue. “If you have a heterosexual couple, it’s in society’s best interest if that couple is married,” Featherman said. “If you have a gay couple, it’s in society’s best interest for them to be married. There is nothing more conservative than telling two unmarried people to get married.” Feather opposes the federal Defense of Marriage Act and supports the Employment Nondiscrimination Act. He said he would focus on crime reduction, education, employment and health care, all issues the LGBT community also deals with, he noted. “Other than being on the right side on every single fairness issue, I care about many other issues in the LGBT community that unfortunately are obscured because of the focus being exclusively on EDNA and marriage equality.” 2nd Dist. Chaka Fattah (D) Congressman Chaka Fattah is a seasoned politician who has long been fighting for LGBT rights. Fattah is a current cosponsor and supporter of the Employment Nondiscrimination Act. FATTAH “ We w a n t t o give guidance through this legislature to employers so that they are clear that people should have equal rights in the workplace,” he said. Fattah voted for the Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Act and the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” He has also worked to protect youth by cosponsoring measures like the Tyler Clementi Higher Education AntiHarassment Act and the Safe Schools Improvement Act.

“We’ve seen examples of bullying, specifically at Rutgers University, and they are horrendous,” he said. Fattah noted that the Ryan White Act, which helps low-income, un- and underinsured Americans access HIV/AIDS treatment, has made important progress in the epidemic, but that there is a lot of work to be done for hard-hit communities. “We’ve had pretty significant challenges in populations that are vulnerable to the HIV infection,” Fattah said, noting that he has seen a significant impact within the women-of-color community. “We want to make sure we prioritize education, prevention and supportive services. That is the real work that has to go forward.” Fattah’s relationship with the LGBT community has been long, and he promises to continue fostering that relationship. “Given the record of support that I have given, that support will continue to be forthcoming,” he said. 6th Dist. Manan Trivedi (D) Physician Manan Trivedi is looking to defeat Republican Congressman Jim Gerlach, who has helmed the 6th District for nearly a decade. Trivedi said he has long advocated for LGBT issues, even “before it was TRIVEDI cool.” “I’ve been a longtime supporter of the LGBT community and marriage equality,” Trivedi said. He opposes the effort to amend the constitution to limit marriage to one man and one woman and would advocate for the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act. Trivedi, a veteran of the Iraq War, supported the lifting of “Don Ask, Don’t Tell.” “People should be able to serve openly, regardless of who they love,” he said. He would work for the passage of the Employment Nondiscrimination Act and

anitbullying efforts like the Safe Schools Improvement Act. Trivedi said he is not only in favor of LGBT equality but also economic equality, and would work to invest in education and job training. “I am running for issues that will benefit the LGBT community as a whole. The LGBT community should vote for me because I am for equality for all. My opponent does not support the community, but I do. I believe that I am the best person to represent them,” he said. Trivedi has been endorsed by Equality Pennsylvania. 7th District George Badey (D) S o u t h Philadelphia native and attorney George Badey said he would bring a progressive voice to Congress if successful in defeating incumbent Republican Rep. Patrick Meehan. “I am for gay BADEY marriage,” he said. “I’ve been asked about my views on gay marriage and I always [say], I’m not your average politician. I give a definite answer.” Badey said that, while on the campaign trail, voters who didn’t agree with his view on marriage equality still congratulated him on his honesty. “They say that it is refreshing to have someone give a direct answer on this,” he said. Badey considers the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional and would support its repeal. “It is just wrong,” he said. “But I think ultimately that this will be a movement that will happen state by state.” He said there “should be no difference” in adoption laws between heterosexual and LGBT parents. “They should still go through the same screening that other couples go through

but they’re just as good parents as anyone else,” he said. Badey said he would work to instate anti-bullying initiatives, noting that he was affected by the story of bullied Rutgers University student Tyler Clementi. “I think [bullying] is a multifaceted problem that requires a lot of solutions,” he said. “Victims need to be supported fully and school districts need to be attuned to this issue.” He considers fighting for LGBT causes the “right thing to do.” “History will prove me right,” he said. “We will feel good when we’re older and we see that we set up the LGBT movement to go forward, and we’ll know we did the right thing.” Badey was endorsed by the Liberty City LGBT Democratic Club and Equality Pennsylvania. 8th Dist. Kathryn Boockvar (D) Before making a bid for Congress against Republican incumbent Mike Fitzpatrick, Kathryn Boockvar said she has long supported LGBT issues in her work as an attorney. “A large part of my career was repBOOCKVAR resenting and counseling LGBT couples and communities on domestic-partnership agreements, estate planning, family planning and all kinds of issues relating to them,” she said. “I wanted to make sure that they were protected, as well as advocate for the rights of the LGBT community.” Boockvar supports same-sex marriage and considers the issue a family matter. “To me, anything that makes the family unit and family security stronger is a good thing,” she said. “[Same-sex marriage] to me obviously does that.” Boockvar would work to lift the state’s Defense of Marriage Act and would support measures to include sexual orientation and gender identity both in the state’s

hate-crime and employment-discrimination laws. Boockvar, who has a daughter in middle school, said bullying has a substantial impact on students and would advocate for programs that seek to end it. She said her work as a board member at Bucks County anti-domestic violence agency A Woman’s Place would help inform her anti-bullying efforts. “Though both are different issues, some of the programs that they use go into the schools and talk to the kids about how they should be treating other people,” she said. Boockvar said she would approach the HIV/AIDS epidemic with the notion that the more education, the better. Her first job was as an advocate for people with HIV/AIDS. “[The epidemic] crosses so many different sectors, including public health, individual health and discrimination. We need to be doing as much as we can to make sure people understand how [HIV/ AIDS] works, how it spreads and how we treat it,” she said. Boockvar has been endorsed by Equality PA and Liberty City Democratic Club. 13th Dist. Allyson Schwartz (D) Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz said

LGBT rights are a natural part of her platform. “ I b e l i ev e i n equal rights for all Americans. I have always been willing to say so,” she said. She has cosponsored and voted for SCHWARTZ the Employment Nondiscrimination Act and also backed the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” “LGBT men and women who are willing to put themselves in harm’s way to defend our nation should be included with all Americans who are willing to step up and serve our nation,” she said. She has also cosponsored the Uniting American Families Act. “We really want to help families stay together and that includes our gay and lesbian friends,” Schwartz said. The Congresswoman said she keeps herself educated on the latest developments in the fight against HIV/AIDS. “We continue to make sure that work gets done on prevention and education. This epidemic has turned from a deadly disease to one that is preventable.” Schwartz has been endorsed by Equality Pennsylvania. ■

• If I am in a relationship, how should my partner and I organize our financial affairs? • How can I leave a legacy for my community? At a minimum, I recommend the following documents for my LGBT clients: • Powers of Attorney: A health-care power of attorney is critically important if you want your partner to act for you should you become incapacitated. You also need a durable power of attorney. This gives someone power over your affairs, such as businesses, finances and real estate. • Advanced Directive: A “living will” enables you to provide instructions to physicians relating to prolonged life support in the event of incurable illness. • HIPAA Authorization: In the past few years, the law has changed to guarantee a higher right to privacy regarding patient health information. Under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, specific authorization is now required to permit medical personnel to release “protected health-care information.” If you do not have this authorization, it could potentially create a problem in the event a physician needs to release medical information in order to activate health-care powers of attorney. • Hospital Visitation Authorization Form: This short document allows you to visit your partner in any medical or treatment facility, and depending on the couples’ wishes, it can also grant you the power to dictate who is allowed in the hospital room to visit your partner. • Pet-Care Directive: These directives became much more popular after Hurricane Katrina. It is a document that provides for who will take care of your pet should anything happen to you. Moreover, it lists what veterinary practice the pet attends and can leave sums of money in

order for your agent to properly care for your pet. • Cohabitation Agreement: If you and your spouse or domestic partner live together and share assets, a cohabitation agreement is critical. This agreement is a cross between a prenuptial agreement and a partnership agreement. Not only can the contract dictate how money and expenses will be managed and divided, but it also defines the duties and responsibilities of each party and may reduce taxable gifts. • Will: Without a will you are subject to the intestacy laws of your state. These laws adversely affect LGBT couples because they define “heirs at law” as blood relatives or adopted children. Without a will, your domestic partner may not be entitled to any of your assets, even assets you may jointly own. You cannot “opt out” of estate planning. Whether you know it or not, you have an estate plan right now. Without a will, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania law “writes” your estate plan for you. This means the Commonwealth, which does not recognize the existence of our relationships, decides who is in charge and who gets what through its intestacy laws. As such, it is imperative for all LGBT individuals, couples and families to empower themselves and protect their loved ones by obtaining these simple, yet powerful, legal documents. ■ Angela D.

International Parental rights to be extended for LGBT families in the Netherlands The government in the Netherlands is looking to change the law to take into account its 25,000 LGBT families, and issues faced by stepparents or sperm donors. The extension would mean that children could have three or more parents, including the biological parents of children of samesex couples. Wiebe Alkema, a spokesperson for the justice ministry, said it “is going to investigate and see what the possibilities are for recognizing three parents or more per family.” The left-wing Green Party, the Liberal VVD and the Labor PvdA requested a report with the intention of amending a lesbian parenting bill. Green MP Liesbeth van Tongeren commented on what has been the norm for legally recognizing parents: “Currently, parenthood in the eyes of the law is almost

always the consequence of biological parenthood,” she said in a statement. She added, “This does not represent the diversity of families in the Netherlands. Often enough, the father of a child with lesbian parents also plays a role in the life of the child.” “How a family lives is more important than the biological lineage,” van Tongeren added. “The bill should take into account what’s best for all concerned.” The Netherlands currently has no legal recognition for stepparents or sperm donors who may wish to be involved in the upbringing of their child. In Parliament, Junior Justice Minister Fred Teveen noted various potential practical objections to the bill being passed, but said he would wait for the conclusions of the report. The Netherlands was the first country to legalize marriage equality back in 2001 and official statistics report that, by the end of 2010, 14,813 gay couples were married in the country.

Sicily gets ready for first gay governor A gay man who shrugged off three Mafia plots to kill him is poised to become Sicily’s first gay governor in elections that show the center left advancing at the expense of Silvio Berlusconi’s right-wing party. Representing a coalition of Italy’s cen-

ter-left Democratic Party and the Catholic UDC party, Rosario Crocetta is leading against the Berlusconi candidate and a contender representing the maverick movement of comedian Beppe Grillo, who trails in third place. Crocetta, a devoted Catholic, has long claimed that Southern Italy is surprisingly relaxed about gay politicians, once stating, “There is a great respect for the individual, making it less homophobic than the north.” As mayor of Gela, Crocetta persuaded local businesses not to pay protection money to the Mafia and claimed that com-

fer.” Togue has also received similar threats, with one individual emailing him photos of his children leaving school. In response, Neela Ghoshal from Human Rights Watch said, “Cameroonian authorities should immediately investigate to find out who is threatening these courageous human-rights defenders.” She added: “The government should make clear to the public that everyone has a right to defense, and that threats against defense attorneys will not be tolerated.” Recently, American and European officials called for the release of two Cameroonian men convicted under the country’s antigay laws. They were prosecuted on a range of dubious accusations, including their preference for consuming the Irish cream liquor-based drink Baileys.

ing out gave him a sense of liberation that allowed him to understand how suffocated Sicily had become under the Mafia’s yoke. One mob boss who hired a Lithuanian assassin for a failed bid to kill Crocetta was less than tolerant of his sexuality than voters, describing him in a wiretapped call as “this queer communist.” A local magistrate said at the time: “The clans may ridicule Crocetta’s sexuality, but it’s the backing he gave businesses that refuse to pay the pizzo [protection payment] that really drove them mad.” Crocetta has suggested that a surprising number of members of Cosa Nostra are themselves gay. Palermo magistrate Antonio Ingroia has said he believes there are a number of gay bosses, adding, “It remains a taboo since they are scared of being ejected from the mob.”

Human Rights Watch: Cameroon must protect lawyers from threats Human Rights Watch has called on the authorities in Cameroon to protect two lawyers who have been on the receiving end of death threats because of their LGBT advocacy work. The New York-based organization said the country’s government should publicly denounce the threats made against Michel Togue and Alice Nkom. Both have received correspondence claiming the lives of their children and families are at risk. Recently, Nkom revealed that she had been called a “lesbian whore” in a text message, which also said it was her turn to “suf-

Three people have launched legal action against Jamaica due to the country’s continued enforcement of homophobic laws. The case is being sent to the InterAmerican Commission on Human Rights and has the support of the Human Dignity Trust, an LGBT-rights group based in the UK. The people are: Gareth Henry, who successfully obtained asylum in Canada due to the violent abuse and persecution he suffered in Jamaica based on his sexual orientation; Dane Lewis, the director of JFLAG — Jamaica’s only human-rights lobby group; and Ian McKnight, CEO of Caribbean Vulnerable Communities, the largest coalition of HIV/AIDS groups in the Caribbean. The Jamaican criminal code prohibits sex between men and sentences for sodomy can include 10 years imprisonment with hard labor. The laws date back to the island’s colonial past. In December of last year, Jamaican Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller promised to review the country’s homophobic legislation. However, campaigners have accused her of inaction. Lewis said that homophobic killings in the country have increased. “This year alone, there have been nine [murders],” he said. “The violence in Jamaica is having a spillover effect on other parts of the Caribbean. St. Lucia now has a murder or so every year.” One prominent Jamaican victim was John Terry, the 65-year-old British honorary consul in Montego Bay who was found dead in 2009 after having been beaten and strangled. A note left on his body read: “This is what will happen to all gays.” It also featured the word “batty man” — a homophobic term of abuse. Jamaican police claimed Terry’s death was not a homophobic murder. ■ — compiled by Larry Nichols

Media Trail Police officer convicted in trans shooting case My Fox D.C. reports a Metropolitan Police officer has been convicted in a shooting after an altercation with a transgender prostitute and her acquaintances. Kenneth Furr, 48, was convicted Oct. 26 of assault with a dangerous weapon and solicitation of prostitution. He was acquitted of several charges, including assault with intent to kill while armed. According to testimony at trial, Furr, who was off-duty, tried to pick up transgender prostitutes on Aug. 26 of last year. He solicited one woman, who refused, and got into an altercation with her and two acquaintances. Prosecutors say Furr drove off, but then parked his car and began shooting toward the other’s vehicle. The car reportedly crashed into Furr’s, and he jumped on the hood of a car and fired through the windshield. Three people were hurt.

2 Ky. men acquitted under antigay hate-crimes law ABC News reports a Kentucky jury has acquitted two men of hate crimes in the first case to be prosecuted under a new federal law against antigay violence. The jury did find the two cousins guilty of kidnapping in an attack on a gay man at a state park last year. Prosecutors had argued that Anthony Ray Jenkins and his cousin David Jason Jenkins attacked Kevin Pennington because of Pennington’s sexual orientation. They said that violated a hate-crimes law that was expanded in 2009 to cover assaults motivated by bias against gays, lesbians and transgender people. It was not clear why jurors rejected that argument Oct. 24. They were whisked away

Trial begins in lawsuit over death certificate Iowa’s KTIV reports a trial has begun in the lawsuit of a same-sex couple suing state health officials for omitting the name of one parent on a death certificate for their child. Opening arguments in the case were held Oct. 26 in Polk County Court. The gay-rights group Lambda Legal filed the lawsuit in February on behalf of Jenny and Jessica Buntemeyer of Davenport. The lawsuit seeks a new death certificate for their stillborn child. The couple say they filled out a death certificate listing both their names, but the health department issued a certificate that didn’t include Jenny Buntemeyer’s name. Jessica Buntemeyer gave birth to a stillborn son last October. Jenny Buntemeyer’s egg was used to conceive the baby.

University recognizes gay marriage for in-state tuition According to the Wisconsin Gazette, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee officials have decided to award in-state tuition rates to a gay man who moved to Milwaukee to be with his husband, who has lived in the city for over a year. The couple was legally married in New York. Admission officials originally rejected Jorge Quintero’s tuition request, citing the state’s ban on recognition of same-sex marriage and civil unions. He and husband Dr. Robert Schneidewend appealed. At a hearing, university officials said Schneidewend’s position as a medical resident does not conform with a state statute governing in-state tuition status because it involves a contract with a fixed-end date. Schneidewend said admission officials had treated them dismissively. Requests for information were “often ignored, unresponded to and inconsistent,” he said. At an Oct. 10 meeting with vice chancellor of student affairs Michael Laliberte, the couple got a chance to explain their situation. Laliberte apologized for the insensitive way the situation had been handled and urged them to file yet another appeal, this time based on merit. The final appeal resulted in Quintero receiving the Regents Equity Award, which qualifies him for in-state tuition rates based on merit in the spring and summer semesters of 2013. Next fall, he can either apply for an extension of the award or receive regular in-state tuition, Schneidewend said. Quintero was notified of the decision by email. Quintero credited the intervention of Equality Wisconsin with helping to change the outcome. ■ — compiled by Larry Nichols

prevention initiative aimed at young HIVnegative men who have sex with men. Each participant will also begin a regimen of Truvada, the first-ever drug designed for HIV-prevention, which was originally introduced in 2004. PrEP will consist of in-person group meetings in which the participants will discuss HIV stigma, healthy living, leadership development and other topics. The 15-member group will range in age from 18-29. Dr. Helen Koenig, physician at the Jonathan Lax Center, along with Noel Ramirez, health-education program coordinator at the Dorothy Mann Center, will spearhead the project. Koenig noted that the center has seen an influx of young men of color coming in, newly diagnosed with HIV. She hopes that PrEP will help stymie this trend. “We wanted to be able to offer PrEP to this young high-risk population as soon as possible, and with as high a likelihood as possible that we could get them to take the medication regularly, as we know that you have to take it almost daily in order for it to work,” she said. Koenig said FIGHT has been working to implement such a program for a long time. The agency teamed up with Ramirez, who will lead the weekly groups. “Noel headed up SWEAT, a very popular support group for young men of color who are HIV-positive, and we are extremely excited that he has adapted this program for HIV-negative young men,” she said. Koenig also noted FIGHT executive director Jane Shull has been a strong proponent of the program. Truvada will be free to all participants. FIGHT will obtain the medication from manufacturer Gilead’s patient-assistance program. The medication will be provided for six months and is renewable. Koenig envisions the program lasting at least a year. “Philadelphia FIGHT will ensure that all participants will get all their medications continuously, meaning that we will fund medications in case of delays or overturned patient-assistance applications,” she said.

once daily and has minimal side effects that can include nausea and headaches. “These usually resolve within the first two weeks as your body gets accustomed to the medication,” Koenig said. The program is seeking volunteers and will specifically reach out to high-risk populations. “We will be asking some of our patients if they have partners who are interested in being treated, and we will also be recruiting young men through our social-networking and counseling/testing initiatives,” Koenig said. “However, anyone who is interested should contact us.” Koenig and her staff will provide medical supervision. “Participants will be tested for HIV, Hepatitis B and several sexually transmitted diseases at the program’s start and prior to initiating PrEP. We will also be checking a blood test that makes sure that their kidneys are healthy,” she said. Koenig and staff will test for STDs and kidney failure every three months. HIV testing will be done with an oral swab every month. “We will monitor participants’ health very closely throughout the program, and we will provide [participants] free primary care and preventive-health interventions as well, as it is likely that they may not have health insurance or another primary-care provider,” Koenig said. The intervention is groundbreaking, she said. “This is the first program of its kind to be offered in Philadelphia, outside of a research setting. The program is innovative as it allows HIV providers, who are familiar with the medications and possible side effects, to provide medical expertise and supervision for a program, while not requiring young men to come to an HIV practice site to get their medications.” For more information, email Koenig at hkoenig@fight.org. ■

A state representative has made it onto the radar of a local pro-life agency that, in part, attacked his work for the LGBT community. State Rep. Brendan Boyle (D-170th Dist.) has been the target of a smear campaign by the Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia. For the past two weekends, supporters of the group have mobilized outside of a number of churches in Northeast Philadelphia and Montgomery County, the area Boyle represents, distributing fliers to sway potential voters against Boyle. In an email to supporters, Boyle called the group’s material “vile literature” that “personally attacked” both him and his brother, Kevin Boyle, the Democratic representative for the neighboring 172nd District. Among the issues listed on the fliers was the fact that Boyle was a founding member of the state legislature’s new LGBT Equality Caucus, which the Pro-Life Union equated with his “promoting perversion.” “I am, indeed, one of the founding members of the LGBT Equality Caucus,” he said in his memo. “I believe all people, regard-

less of their orientation, deserve respect, dignity and equality. These extremists want me to be ashamed of this fact. Actually, I am proud of it.” Boyle said the location for the demonstrations was also inappropriate. “These tactics are reprehensible and have no place outside places of worship,” he said. Boyle noted, however, that the Pro-Life Union’s actions were ineffective in changing his own positions. “Whether it is equal rights for gay Americans, women’s health or any other issue, I will continue to vote in accordance with what I believe is right,” he said. “If this right-wing group thinks I’m going to back down because of their tactics, well, they just don’t know me very well.” According to its website, the Pro-Life Union “is dedicated to building a culture of life by promoting the sancity of life and the virtue of chastity,” which it says it accomplishes through “prayer and witness, education, alternatives and public policy” work. The predominantly Catholic-affiliated organization has been in existence for more than three decades and is headquartered in Oreland. ■

Morales will be joined by acts like South Philly storyteller Hillary Rea and Dave Hill, a national comedian and author of “Tasteful Nudes.” “I saw him at the Tin Angel last year and he was hilarious,” Morales said of Hill. “He dropped soda on his laptop. I couldn’t tell whether he did it on purpose or not, but it was really funny.” Morales, who can be seen at Laughs on Fairmount at Urban Saloon every Monday, and on Tuesdays hosting Kinky Quizzo at the Venture Inn, said his jokes and stories adhere closely to his real-life experiences and that he usually doesn’t

need to exaggerate for effect. “I do a handful of dating jokes, like one where I met a guy at Tavern and Googled his phone number that night and found his Rentboy profile with all these naked pictures and stuff,” he said. “So stuff like that I don’t need to exaggerate because it’s funny on its face.” So, did you go out with him? “No,” he said. “What’s really funny about that is I was still going to date him because I was like, well, free hooker. But then he texted me one day and was like, ‘How old are you again?’ And I said 30, and I never heard from him again.” Damn! “It took a lot of nerve,” Morales said. “This guy’s undercarriage is on the

Internet but he wouldn’t date me because I was five years older than him.” Also corralling comedic talent for First Person Arts is “RISK!” the popular storytelling show, which will feature headliners Janeane Garofalo and Kevin Allison. Allison, who is famous for his work on MTV’s popular sketch comedy show “The State,” said that while the show features performers known for stand-up comedy, it is a storytelling show, to which comedians often have a hard time adapting. “I was a member of the sketch comedy group The State in the 1990s so I have a great deal of friends — Margaret Cho, Sarah Silverman, Marc Maron — going way back,” Allison said. “I kind of veered

away from the comedy scene for many years and when I did start performing again, it was as a storyteller, which is a very different thing than what most standups are used to doing. It’s subtly different to get up and tell a 10-minute story than it is to do joke, joke, joke on a seam. Some comedians struggle with it. They need some coaching. Everyone who does the show gets some coaching from me beforehand. But some need a little bit more than others because they are so reliant on hearing laughter. Stories are more like real life in that there’s bound to be plenty of laughter and there are bound to be many times when other emotions come into play.” Allison, who is openly gay, said he started “RISK!” as something to channel his creative energy when he found himself suddenly without a troupe to perform with. “When I was in The State, we were doing sketch comedy and it was very broad and very silly,” he said. “I loved it but when The State broke up, I didn’t know what to do with myself. I had always been the black sheep in the group. I was the only gay member, so I spent less time socially with the group and I had my own quirky way of expressing myself. So when we broke up, everyone broke into cliques and, since I was the floater, I was kind of on my own. I thought, Well, I’ll do sketch comedy as one. So I started getting up on stage solo and telling stories but as very broad, crazy, kooky colorful sketch-com-

yourself, when people feel that you are being authentic, they will let you go anywhere.” Allison said that storytelling audiences are far more polite and interested in what the artist has to say than anything performers will experience in a traditional comedy show. “We always try to be clear that ‘RISK!’ is a storytelling show,” he said. “Here in New York City, storytelling is like folksinging was in the 1960s. Everyone is doing it. You can be almost anyone and do it. If you are being authentic, the audience immediately adjusts their expectations. They open up and become more supportive. It’s not the place where you are going to find that energy where people are going to be heckled. I don’t know why, but in stand-up comedy, there’s this understanding that the audience is allowed to yell at the performer. I don’t know how it started, but it is very much the reality. That does not happen with storytelling shows. They just get it. ‘RISK!’ has always been: What are you afraid to talk about because society or your family or your school or your church have always told you, ‘Don’t talk about that?’ It has been a place where people can just let it out. It doesn’t have to be perfectly memorized or perfectly written. It’s a much more raw kind of show.” ■ The 11th Annual First Person Arts Festival runs Nov. 8-17.

Get Out and Play

SPORTS PGN

Scott A. Drake

Sports turning outside in One of my goals with this column is to garner some cross-sport support. Whether it is getting softball players to hit up a rugby match or a soccer practice or getting football players to check out the wrestlers or swimmers, we should support our fellow athletes either financially or just by showing up once in a while to cheer a game. In the coming weeks, this column will cover more of the indoor sports, for obvious reasons. That is not to say there are hard lines drawn between indoor and outdoor recreation — swimmers, wrestlers, bowlers and other organizations are indoor year-round. There will be winter fundraisers for outdoor sports to report, as always. But for now, while there is no field of dreams being used for outdoor sports, I encourage everyone who is an athlete, a friend or partner of an athlete, or even just an interested party in some activity, to get out and play with other members of our com-

munity. Athletic honors At the 30th-anniversary party for the Gay Games in Los Angeles last month, several wellknown people and organizations, and one lesser-known person, were recognized for their contributions to the LGBT sports scene. Medals of honor were awarded to Patricia Nell Warren, author of “The Frontrunner,” filmmaker David Secter and The Trevor Project, which received the Youth Legacy Youth Award. In a show of solidarity for unbiased and open media reporting, the Legacy Award for Social Justice was awarded posthumously to Erick Martinez Ávila. Ávila was an out journalist and spokesperson for Kukulcán, a Honduran LGBT-rights organization. In the past three years, nearly 20 journalists have been murdered in that country. Let’s get rolling Delaware Pride, Inc., is get-

Participants pay a $15 weekly bowling fee, some of which goes into prize money for the end-of-year banquet. For more information, email info@delawarepride.org. In the long run ...

Suzi Nash

Sherrie Cohen: Daughter of a dynasty, leader in her own right Did you know that, right here in Philadelphia, we have our own Kennedyesque dynasty? For generations, the Cohen family has been dedicated to public service in our area. The dynasty began with David Cohen, an activist and attorney who served as a city councilman for 29 years (at age 90, Cohen was one of the oldest American elected leaders in office). His wife, Florence Cohen, was head of the New Democratic Coalition of Philadelphia and his chief of staff. His son Mark Cohen is a Pennsylvania state representative who, following in his father’s footsteps, is one of the longest-serving state legislators in Pennsylvania history. David’s other son Denis Cohen serves in the First Judicial District of the Pennsylvania Courts of Common Pleas. Sherrie Cohen, who like her late father is an attorney and activist, was also the first open lesbian to make a run for City Council. We spoke to Sherrie about life, family and the excitement of being a delegate at the Democratic National Convention. PGN: Tell me about growing up in the Cohen family. SC: Well, it was wonderful growing up in a family that was so committed to public service and fighting for justice. We were raised going to demonstrations for civil rights, fighting against school segregation, protesting against the Vietnam War. Those were some of the most memorable moments of my childhood. We were taught that social movements are the way to make things happen, so I’m very happy to continue on that path. I actually followed my mother by getting involved in the women’s movement, then I came out and joined the LGBT movement. It’s very effective when people get together to demand change. PGN: I grew up in an activist family as well and remember being tear-gassed by the police with my mother at some rally in D.C. when I was young. SC: Wow. That reminds me of when my father was a delegate at the 1968 Democratic Convention, which was marked by lots of demonstrations on the street, tear gas and blood everywhere. I was 13, and I remember the intensity of the moment. Being out on the street was so exciting and then you’d come across the police using force to try and stop the protest, but we kept marching anyway. PGN: What lessons did you take away? SC: Regardless of the circumstance, don’t give up. No matter how hard it may be or how long it takes. An example is the fight my parents waged to put a library in our neighborhood. People told them it was a waste of city funds, that people in that neighborhood didn’t need a library, but

they persisted. It took 36 years to build that library, but they got it done. Look at the state of LGBT rights in Pennsylvania. I was thrilled to be involved in the fight for gay rights back in the ’70s here in Philadelphia, but it took years before it finally came into being, in ’82. And on the state level, we still don’t have basic civil rights. It can take decades, but it’s well worth the fight. PGN: A memorable protest moment? SC: That would be in 1975 when we were fighting for the “Gay Civil Rights” bill. It had been held up in council committee, where they wanted to kill it. Bill 1275 was supposed to provide LGBT citizens protection against discrimination in the areas of employment, housing and public accommodations. Other groups from the community wanted to have a silent vigil to protest another year gone by without it being passed, but I was in this rowdy group of lesbians and we said, “No! We don’t want to be silent.” We wanted them to know we weren’t going to take them totally ignoring our rights by quietly sitting down. So I got up on a chair and started chanting, “Free Bill 1275!” and the sergeant-at-arms and his men swooped in and physically carted us out. Many of them hit and beat the women. We continued chanting outside the chambers and they brought in the police civil-affairs unit, who literally kicked us down four flights of stairs at City Hall. Many of the women were hurt and had to go to the hospital, so we sued the police unit for excessive use of force.

testimony for the day. Unfortunately, it was overturned by a conservative appellate judge, but it shows what a small, determined group of people can do to win on behalf of the people. I’m now an attorney with the Tenant Union Representative Network, so I try to keep people in their homes when they’ve fallen on hard times or when their landlord fails his or her responsibility to keep up the property, creating an unsafe place to live. PGN: So back to the elections, how does one get to be a delegate? SC: I was elected to the state committee by my district and have been serving there for a number of years, and I’m also vice president of the LGBT caucus of the Pennsylvania Democratic Party. So through my involvement with them and the Obama campaign, I applied to be a member of the delegation and was successful.

PGN: What are some of the reasons Liberty City endorsed President Obama? SC: Oh gosh, so many. He signed the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, which expanded the federal hate-crimes law to include crimes motivated by gender, sexual orientation or gender identity. He lifted the ban on using HIV status to prevent people from entering the U.S. He ordered the Department of Health and Human Services to give LGBT couples hospital-visitation rights and the ability to make medical decisions for each other. He expanded the Family Medical Leave Act to include LGBT parents and partners. He endorsed the Domestic Partnership Benefits and Obligations Act of 2009 to provide full partnership benefits to federal employees. He added gender identity and expression to the Fair Housing Act and banned job discrimination on gender identity throughout the federal government. The list goes on. He’s hired and appointed a record number of LGBT people and he’s the first president to hire/ appoint transgender appointees.

PGN: What are you doing for the cam-

PGN: Were you an attorney at that point? SC: No, my father was a lawyer and my older brother was a lawyer, so it was something I’d always thought about, but it wasn’t until my mid-30s that I decided to pursue it. I went to law school and really loved it; it’s nice to have the legal skills to help the causes I’ve been involved with. PGN: What’s a case that’s given you great satisfaction? SC: I worked on the class-action lawsuit against the five major tobacco companies in the country for their fraud in misleading the American public about the dangers of nicotine and tobacco. We were representing half-a-million smokers. The trial went on for two-and-a-half years and we got one of the highest jury verdicts in the nation’s history. It was incredible. We were a trial team of four walking into court every day against the tobacco giants, who had a team of 70 lawyers in the court every day and multiple attorneys across the country working on other aspects of the case. We had to battle the several motions that they filed each day, in addition to preparing our witnesses and trial

PGN: So if someone wanted to become a committeeperson, how would they go about it and what does it entail? SC: Helping to register people in your neighborhood to vote and getting them out to vote on Election Day. Committeepeople can also serve as liaisons to the city government to help get neighborhood problems addressed. You only need 10 signatures from Democratic voters in your area to get started. Liberty City will have meetings to show people how to go about it closer to the time. It’s a great grassroots way of getting involved.

paign? SC: I’m co-chair of Liberty City LGBT Democratic Club, which has been active in the campaign doing phone banking, pub crawls and working to register people and get the vote out. We endorse a slate of candidates every election. I’m also the Democratic committeeperson in my neighborhood, which is an elected position. Elections are coming up in 2014 and we want to encourage people who want to get more politically active to run.

PGN: He also held the first LGBT Pride Month celebration at the White House, and he and Joe Biden recorded an “It Gets Better” video. I don’t see Romney or Ryan doing that. SC: No, the Republican Party actually included an antigaymarriage plank to their official platform.

PGN: So let’s jump back a bit. What were you like as a kid? SC: I was quiet. I enjoyed reading. Once a week we’d get to go to the local library and pick up a stack of books. I was a tomboy so I liked climbing trees and playing with the boys. And though I was quiet, I was still involved in a lot of social-justice activities. PAGE 47

PGN: What was a favorite thing to do with your siblings? SC: There was a hill just a couple blocks away and in the winter we’d go sledding and then come home, where my parents had a fireplace and we’d cook burgers and roast marshmallows. PGN: You attended Girls High. What was your favorite class and activities? SC: I loved social studies, I was on the debate team and I co-edited the school newspaper. I was very active in the antiwar and civil-rights movements in high school. We had a citywide student-mobilization committee, where we met monthly to plan anti-war actions, and I was also the chair and then president of my synagogue youth group’s social-action group. We did car washes and other fundraisers to support Dr. King’s “Poor People’s Campaign.’’ PGN: Anne Coulter was just on “The View” talking about how liberal white people never actually cared about black people. And my first thought was how many people, in the Jewish community especially, were part of the civil-rights and Dr. King’s poor people’s movement. Refuting her theory, I understand you are currently a part of Elements, which is an LGBT women-of-color organization. SC: Yes, it’s so important to support one another.

or a candidate who has aligned himself with antigay extremist positions and platforms. Talk to everyone you know who supports you as an LGBT person and tell them how important it is to support a president who supports you and your rights.

PGN: And I know your father marched with Dr. King in Selma and was that at the “I Have a Dream” speech. SC: Yes, one of the golden moments in my early life was when my dad had signed up to go down South to help with voter registration for African-Americans and to combat the discriminatory practices that were being used to stop people from registering and voting. Before he left, he wrote out his will. I felt it was moving that he was willing to sacrifice his life to help protect the fundamental rights of all people to vote.

PGN: One thing I wish we would also focus on is that he’s also a good candidate for many other reasons. I’m on the listserves of several environmental groups and, since they are nonprofits, they can’t come out and endorse him, but they’ve all been touting how much he and Lisa Jackson, president of the Environmental Protection Agency, have done for park lands and the environment in the face of opposition and how screwed we’ll be if the “Drill, baby, drill” party gets in. SC: Yes, it’s really important. My father was the sponsor of one of the first air-pollution measures in the country and had to battle big businesses to get it passed. His chemical right-to-know bill was one of the nation’s first, and he started one of the first municipal-recycling programs. He would approve of what the president’s trying to do, especially the new fuel-efficiency standards, which will make a big difference to the environment and the economy.

PGN: Wow. That just gets me even madder at the voter apathy in today’s culture. What would you say to encourage people to do their civic duty and vote? SC: We can clearly see the impact of the people we pick to represent us. Are they pro-LGBT rights or are they against us? Are they going to move the country forward on behalf of our community, women and other minorities, or do they want to take us back to before the LGBT-rights movement or the civil-rights and women’s movements or even the New Deal? The choice is pretty clear. We have a president who has declared his support for marriage equality and has been an advocate for us,

PGN: You came very close in your run for City Council. What were some of the positive things that came out of that? SC: Well, I think that just having an out lesbian in the race was an important statement. I was the first out Democratic

candidate for City Council, which is astonishing. I was able to talk about LGBT issues in areas where perhaps no one has spoken about them before. I was a candidate of inclusion and coalition-building because that’s what my whole life has been about, and my campaign was a representation of that. I had people from all walks of life working with me, different neighborhoods, different ages, different backgrounds, because people knew that I would be an advocate for them. And hopefully I will be. I’m planning to run again in 2015. PGN: It’s so close to the election. What are things people can do to get involved? SC: There’s still a lot to do. People can go to BarackObama.com, put in your zip code and get connected to your neighborhood office. We’re also asking people to help with Tammy Baldwin’s campaign. She’s running to be the first out lesbian United States senator. At her website, Tammybaldwin.com, under the Take Action tab, you can volunteer to phone bank for her. It doesn’t matter where you live. Locally, Chris Dietz is out of Millersburg, and it’s just a short trip to help with the door-to-door canvassing for him or for Daylin Leach in King of Prussia, who introduced the bill for marriage equality.
