1998, Ltd.

From Ambush, November 1998 – at the time of the boycott against HRC:

From: Kevin Kirby
Subject: Re: Mr. Naquin-Delain,
I received your letter concerning the boycott of HRC. I am sorry you feel the way you do and I am sorry you feel we will win our struggle for equality be boycotting each other.

The mission of the Human Rights Campaign is to create a world where lesbian and gay people are ensured of their basic equal rights- and can be open, honest, and safe at home, at work, and in the community. We ask all fair-minded people who believe in this mission to join. As you may know, our lobbyist work closely with BINet, a bisexual organization and GenderPAC, a transgender organization. We would love to be able to advocate on all issues of equality, but with a limited staff and finical resources we simple can not. However with coalition building in the progressive movement we will create an America where all Americans have their basic equal rights. Please feel free to write or call anytime.
–Kevin Kirby, HRC membership, kevin.kirby@hrc.org

But oh how HRC loved to say it educated on trans issues – and, less than a year after that pathetic plea for mean, nasty, overflowing-with-resources trans people and their non-trans allies to leave po’ lil’ 98-pound weakling HRC alone, could, with a straight(-acting) executive face claim:

I think that the Human Rights Campaign has done as much if not more on transgender issues than most other national [ gay and lesbian ] organizations. If you really look at the actual work.

Well, I’m looking here – as I did in “A Year in the Life of the Human Right Scampaign” – at what HRC apparently wanted (still wants?) trans people to believe was nine months of 24/7 gay-led advocacy on trans issues fuled by a 55-gallon drum of meth and bankrolled by the entirety of Fort Knox.

But alas, what HRC apparently wanted (still wants?) trans people to believe was nine months of 24/7 gay-led advocacy on trans issues fuled by a 55-gallon drum of meth and bankrolled by the entirety of Fort Knox and a skunk turd looked – and smelled – a lot alike.

And they still do.
