Well, It Was Your Organization That Made Sure We Had to Wait

From Queer Channel Media:

Human Rights Campaign President Chad Griffin pointed to various marginalized groups in the LGBT community left behind after the marriage ruling during his introduction to Biden.

“For that transgender woman in Baltimore seeing her friends murdered in the streets, for that lesbian couple raising two kids in Mississippi and for that teen living with HIV on the streets of this very city, our nation’s capital, they can’t wait,” Griffin said. “We can’t wait. And with your continued support and leadership, I promise you won’t wait.”

We’re still waiting for the reparations HRC owes us.

A distinct change in tone could be heard at the 19th Human Rights Campaign’s national dinner in D.C. as the focus of LGBT rights shifts away from marriage.

The annual dinner on Saturday night was the first to take place since the Supreme Court’s ruling months ago that struck down all state bans on same-sex marriage, leaving in the wake of the decision other agenda items such as non-discrimination protections and transgender visibility.

And we ‘other agenda items’ will continue to demand the reparations HRC owes us.
