A new Gallup poll finds that a slim majority of Americans support new legislation to protect LGBT+ individuals from discrimination. The amount of Americans who view LGBT+ relations as acceptable is also increasing, even under a Republican president. bit.ly/2XnLxji... See MoreSee Less
We partnered with Human Rights Campaign, Lambda Legal, Out & Equal Workplace Advocates and Freedom for All Americans to convene 207 major companies to sign a “friend of the court” brief filed in landmark #SCOTUS cases that could determine whether LGBT+ people are protected from discrimination. ...

Our very own Todd Sears in Forbes.... "There’s a huge distinction between companies that truly support LGBT+ people — companies that hire us, promote us, develop us, learn from us and care about our points of view, companies that invest themselves into our movement, companies that put themselves on the line to advocate for our equality — and companies that dress in rainbow drag to snag our dollars every June.
Brands that use Pride to pinkwash are an insult to the businesses who are helping to drive change, just as they are to the LGBT+ equality movement as a whole.

“People always ask me ‘what should I do?’ And I say, what do you want to do? There’s a million things to be done. What makes you mad? What interests you? What turns you on? We should be organized. Has anything I’ve said today pissed you off? Good.” - #LarryKramer
It’s really amazing, and also depressing, to hear from #LarryKramer on the state of the #LGBTQ movement. He’s an inspiration and a goad, and we’re grateful he took time to share his insights with #OutNEXT
« To this day I don’t know where my anger came from » says #LarryKramer in reminiscing what drove him to fight a system that ignored the plight of #HIV patients « I hated my father, might be good enough of a reason » at @OutLeadership #OutNext event interviewed by @KateKendell
Really impressed by the clarity of the vision and determination of Lt. Commander Blake Dremann—the first openly transgender servicemember to be promoted in the US military's history, and the president of @sparta_pride. A true and inspiring leader and a credit to the armed forces
