Erase Hate Petition



My mom sent this to me. In spite of the loss of her husband and all her personal health problems, my mom has been instrumental in getting a PFLAG chapter started in her community.

My only beef with the video is that I wish it said the violence occurred "because of homophobia" or "hatred" or "bigotry" (rather than because someone was GLBT or Q).

I'm rather pessimistic about all of this. I don't think that legislation is going to elimiate hatred.

I hear you. But how i feel about it helping is: Maybe, maybe not...can't hurt. And it gets people's attention on the problem.
