Strong headwinds against scrapping filibuster to pass E uality ct Sinema critici ed for selling out her own community !"#$%&'(#)*%+(*+#,#-./012/13452067589:-/;

Despite renewed tal of ending the legislative filibuster in the Senate, proponents of the E uality ct appear to be relying on the challenge of finding votes to advance the legislation as surprising figures li e Sen. yrsten Sinema D ri have dug in on support for Senate rules. Ending the filibuster, which critics have decried as a relic of structural racism, has been a pursuit of progressive activists for some time, but hopes were pi ued last wee when resident Biden in an interview with BC ews s eorge Stephanopoulos said he d be open to filibuster reform. !I don t thin that you have to eliminate the filibuster, you have to do it what it used to be when I first got to the Senate bac in the old days, Biden said. ! ou had to stand up and command the oor, you had to eep tal ing. s ed whether that means he supports filibuster reform, Biden replied, !I am. hat s what it was supposed to be. !It s getting to the point where, you now, democracy is having a hard time functioning, Biden added. nder the idea of going bac to a !tal ing filibuster as articulated by Biden, senators would actually have to continue to tal on the Senate oor to prevent the chamber from moving to the ne t agenda item if votes aren t present to invo e, as opposed to simply signaling they would continue to tal as they do in the current system. hin of the iconic film, ! r. Smith oes to Washington, where immy Stewart as fictional Sen. efferson Smith filibustered to stop appropriations legislation that amounted to a dam scheme benefiting the political machine in his state. Biden s comments appear to echo statements from Sen. oe anchin D W. a. , who has previously signaled he opposes ending the legislative filibuster, made recently when he suggested the filibuster should be more !painful for senators to use. Sen. Eli abeth Warren D ass. added fuel to the fire last wee when she at out called the filibuster !racist. Warren is on solid ground for her characteri ation of the filibuster, which appears nowhere in the Constitution or in documents of the ounders. Instead, the filibuster was adopted over time in the Senate and made a regular tool in the th century. he late Sen. Strom hurmond still holds the record for the longest single person filibuster in the .S Senate for spea ing for hours and minutes straight in an effort to thwart the Civil ights ct of . But the reality of eliminating the filibuster is complicated. Biden as president is chief legislator, but has no direct say on whether or not the Senate will eep the filibuster, nor do any individual senators. he filibuster as part of Senate rules would re uire a simple ma ority in the Senate to abolish. Sen. eff er ley D re. , the chief sponsor of the E uality ct, told the Washington Blade he s open to filibuster reform to passing the legislation, but signaled through a spo esperson this wee the plan for the time being is to find votes. !Sen. er ley has long ta en the position that we need to fi the bro en Senate and restore its ability to pass important legislation by simple ma ority including legislation li e the E uality ct, artina c ennan, a er ley spo esperson said. ! iven the urgency of the E uality ct, the fact that conversations within the caucus about filibuster reform are still ongoing, and the past epublican support for bills li e the Employment on Discrimination ct, Sen. er ley is focused right now on meeting with his epublican colleagues and pushing to find votes to get full e uality into law as soon as possible. What does this mean for the E uality ct, which would e pand the prohibition on discrimination against B people under federal law Supporters are going to have to find epublicans who d be willing to bac the legislation to reach the votes to invo e cloture and end a filibuster. hat means negotiations with epublicans li e Susan Collins and hom illis who have said they were open to the bill. But that could also mean concessions, li e an e panded religious e emption or carve outs from non discrimination principles for transgender ids in school sports. er ley s view may be a re ection of reality on the ground. In an article this wee , olitico uoted multiple Democratic senators as being uncomfortable with the idea of eliminating the filibuster, although some were open to reform. Senate a ority Whip Dic Durbin D Ill. is uoted as saying !there are several senators who have e pressed concerns within the Democratic caucus about a change with respect to the filibuster. Senate inority eader itch cConnell y. has already made threats to ma e life in the Senate a living hell for Democrats if they end the filibuster. In a chamber that ! " !

re uires unanimous consent to do anything, that could mean needing a ma ority vote to do something as simple as turning the lights on. But the senator most infuriating progressive activists who want to see the E uality ct passed is Sinema, who in her latest incarnation as a conservative Democrat has opposed ending the legislative filibuster. Critics have said Sinema s opposition constitutes the only out bise ual in the Senate essentially bloc ing B rights legislation after having won endorsements from B political groups for her election. either Sinema nor anchin have responded to repeated re uests from the Blade in recent wee s to comment on whether they re with eeping the filibuster even if it means a continued hold on the E uality ct. anchin has been reluctant to support the E uality ct in any event, having stated concerns two years ago about schools having to implement policies to accommodate transgender students. B organi ations see ing to pass the E uality ct, which are reluctant to discuss openly their strategy on the legislation, are eeping silent on the issue of the filibuster as it pertains to the legislation. he uman ights Campaign declined to comment for this article. he B ictory Institute also signaled through a spo esperson no comment on the basis the organi ation doesn t ta e policy positions. But not all negotiators are being as uiet. ne B policy advocate who s part of negotiations on the E uality ct and spo e to the Washington Blade on condition of anonymity for greater candor urged supporters to consider filibuster reform as a way to get B civil right legislation to Biden s des . ! his is the best opportunity we have ever had to pass the E uality ct, but we don t now how long it is going to last, the advocate said. !We cannot let this moment slip away. ll options to pass the E uality ct in this current Congress must be on the table, including changing the vote, superma ority re uirement in the Senate. Students of B history remember the filibuster has been an obstruction to advancing B rights years before. t the start of the bama administration, the late Sen. ohn cCain successfully filibustered efforts to repeal !"#$ t s , Don t ell in the military before it was decoupled from a defense policy pac age and passed after year long debate in the lame duc session of Congress. eanwhile, progressive activists continue to champion the idea of ending the filibuster as the only means to ensure B civil rights legislation, and other items Biden promised as part of his agenda, reach the president s des . ichelangelo Signorile, a progressive activist who has championed the idea of ending the filibuster, said Sinema and B organi ations would be to blame if the E uality ct doesn t pass as a result of a refusal to end a filibuster. ! here is no way the E uality ct is getting votes, Signorile said. !Some epublicans are ma ing noise now about compromises, particularly around trans girls and sports or religious e emptions both of which are unacceptable. But these senators are stal ing horses to stall things because even if those unacceptable modifications were made it s hard to see how it gets votes. he filibuster must be reformed or ended, and yrsten Sinema, if she doesn t change her position, will have sold out her own people and will have harmed us enormously. roups li e the ictory und and C must publicly demand she change her position or publicly pull all support of her.

Its board of directors in a statement to the Blade said ur community has repeatedly been sub ected to anti sian rhetoric and brutality toward our elderly. he statement adds recent events, including the premeditated murders in tlanta, ma es it evidently clear the refusal to recogni e the atrocities for what they are hate and racism. hese events perpetuate the model minority myth that anti sian racism isn t real, it reads. We must ma e it plainly clear the hate and violence on the I community must stop. ur community will be seen and heard. uam t. ov. osh enorio, who is gay, said elected and religious leaders can no longer remain silent about racism. What bothers me most about the shootings in tlanta, the violent attac s on sians, especially the elderly, and the insurrection at the Capitol is the silence and indifference of so many leaders, both elected and religious, he told the Blade. We cannot allow these acts to go unpunished and must hold these leaders accountable for their roles in sowing division. Wills said the shootings raise larger uestions about the treatment of I people in the .S. here s a few different things that come to mind, and some of it is deeply systemic, they told the Blade. uestion that comes to mind for me very, very, very easily is why was the massage parlor even open during a pandemic Why did these fol s have to wor in the middle of a global crisis that necessitates people not touching Why were they not cared for by society and the state more deeply, to the point at which they had to do this labor added Wills. I even thin about the ind of broader things about it, about how legacies of war and imperialism made it so that sian women, sian trans fol s, sian se wor ers are overly fetishi ed and thought of as ust bodies for pleasure and not humans, not full humans, they told the Blade. here s things li e that when it when I thin of this as a preventable violence, I m li e, these fol s should not have had to wor in the ways that they had not had that, that they had to wor and show up and earn money to live and survive. nd these fol s as humans should not have had to e ist in the society in which they were dehumani ed from so many different angles. reporter during Wednesday s press conference as ed Bottoms whether the three spas were places where somebody could have had se ual encounters. We are not about to get into victim blaming, victim shaming here, said Bottoms. uthorities have not charged the shooter under eorgia s hate crimes law, which too effect last summer. ar told the Blade he would categori e the shootings as a hate crime. ichael . guyen, chair of the B sian acific lliance, a San rancisco based B I advocacy group, agreed. he shooter hit up three different massage parlors, guyen told the Blade. It s very intentional. ou don t ust go drive, par , ill, go bac , drive, par and ill. o me, it s clearly a hate crime. Wills said the shootings were percent motivated by race and gender and hate, but was hesitant to describe them as a hate crime. I don t li e the framing of hate crime because it doesn t matter, they said. he legality of it is not the focus to me the criminali ation part is not the focus. he sheriff of the county is rushing to humani e the assailant, while people continue to dehumani e those of those who have been lost, added Wills. his is an act of raciali ed and gendered violence, fueled by hate and vitriolic belief.

Corado, in her words, is a Salvadoran who migrated, but a part of her stayed here. She, upon hearing the stories of many B people who migrated and others she has met who still live in El Salvador, said she felt the desire to fight for bringing those dreams and

challenges to her homeland. ur wor at Casa uby is to avoid suffering and to offer support through alliances, that is why we aim to share the programs for migrants that wor in Washington because we have seen that they wor , Corado told the Blade on arch during an interview from Casa uby s new office in San Salvador, the Salvadoran capital.

he Birdcage turns

op a pirin tablet, pierce your toast, and en oy this gay classic a e your pic . he movie is infinitely uotable. It s li e riding a psychotic horse toward a burning stable. h, what interesting china. It loo s li e young men playing leap frog. ou re going to the cemetery with your toothbrush. ow Egyptian. here are do ens more. nd if you re gay and have been to a dinner party over the years, you ve probably heard them. his year mar s the th anniversary of i e ichols s now gay classic he Birdcage, itself a rema e of the ranco Italian film a Cage au olles. he film is sort of a powerhouse of acting, with ene ac man, two time cademy ward winner Dianne Wiest, and anchored by one of the biggest bo office stars of the time, obin Williams. he movie in a nutshell is a new ta e on the uess Who s Coming to Dinner model, offering a situational comedy li e no other. he cold, grey, conservative eeley s of hio visit the colorful, vibrant oldmans or is it Coleman of iami Beach, all for dinner and to meet the parents of the boy their daughter is wanting to marry. f course there are more layers to it all. he head of the eeley clan is a conservative senator in the age of family values, rmand oldman owns a drag club where his partner is the star. So you can see how it goes more or less. Simply, the film is a celebration of gay life, and at a time when that was needed badly. nd couple it with hiladelphia the film that was released two years prior starring om an s, still now and then one of merica s biggest stars. or so long, gay men in film were suffering creatures. ame any film featuring a gay character prior to he Birdcage and the chances of the gay character ma ing it to the end of the film alive were not great. he Birdcage turns this all on its head. or gays in the audience we saw happy, healthy, thriving gay men in loving a relationship and owners of successful business. or the straight people in the audience, they saw all that, too. But for many, I m guessing the vast ma ority, they had never seen the inside of a gay bar before, not to mention a loving gay home. It was a pee into a world that they would never really be a part of. But again, bac to the gays in the audience, we new who the o e really was on, and which family in the movie you would rather be a part of. It s no wonder the film begins and ends with Sister Sledge s gay anthem We are amily. nd in the film, ust when everything seems hopeless, Barbara eeley, played here by Calista loc hart, turns to the oldmans and says that, I would have loved to have been part of your family. he choice for everyone was obvious. he Birdcage might not be the perfect gay film, but it s a perfect little gay film. It s hard to call the movie seminal when it should be, because so little mainstream gay cinema came along after. Sure, we had s ove Simon, but that was more a less a teen romantic comedy. Important, sure, but I d venture to say it didn t have the mainstream appeal, much less success, he Birdcage en oyed. hen of course there was s Bro ebac ountain, both a mainstream and critical success. But it s not a film you revisit time and time again, stream on rainy ehoboth days, throwing around uotations and impressions. Why ollywood hasn t produced much mainstream gay cinema since he Birdcage is certainly up for debate. aybe he Birdcage ust set the bar too high. So pop a pirin tablet, pierce your toast, and en oy.

DC B Budget Coalition s priorities must be addressed Balancing city budget on bac s of the most vulnerable is unacceptable

Since the start of the C ID pandemic, nonprofit entities have played a pivotal role in supporting the most vulnerable Washingtonians, especially B and trans non binary individuals in the region. ccording to the CDC, B people have higher rates of underlying health conditions associated with a more severe C ID response, which are especially prevalent among our Blac and Brown communities. urthermore, the transgender and non binary community has faced uni uely disproportionate vulnerability to severe short and long term health ris s associated with C ID . Beyond C ID , of the District s homeless youth identify as B , and we have the highest per capita hate crime rate of any ma or city in the country. B seniors are two times more li ely to face social isolation and of trans seniors are reported to have attempted suicide. ocal non profits, I S, S , the Wanda lston oundation, Casa uby, and many other organi ations, provide critical resources to support at ris individuals to ensure they have basic human resources to navigate the C ID pandemic. hese non profits also provide essential services throughout the year to uplift individuals at all stages of life, and fight to combat hate crime rates in the District. eadership from ayor uriel Bowser would be a proposed budget that leaves no federal dollar off the table to enhance and e pand critical services. ny funding cuts will disproportionately impact B people, especially our Blac and Brown trans non binary community. he D.C. government is in a uni ue position regarding the upcoming budget in the government ran a surplus of million, resulting from the fiscal conservativeness of the previously approved budget. he government has opportunities to ta e advantage of new or underutili ed revenue streams or review different areas of the budget that are over utili ed, such as the budget for the etropolitan olice Department. While the decisions in front of ayor Bowser and the D.C. Council are undoubtedly difficult, the budget priorities proposed by the DC B Budget Coalition are long overdue and balancing the budget on the bac s of the most vulnerable during this crisis is unacceptable. hese proposed budget re uests will uplift thousands of B people in our great city. s we enter the spring, we enter the time of the budget process. lease contact your local D.C. Council member and urge them to support a sustainable and e uitable budget for the most at ris in our community.
