Outing the Pink Mafia

It is actually not true for me to say there is no such thing as the Pink Mafia. The Pink Mafia, or as it is more widely known, the Velvet Mafia or Gay Mafia, was created by opponents of equality for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Intersex (LGBTQI) people across the world and as a response to us asserting our basic rights to be. 502 more words

Marriage Equality

civilrightsactivist reblogged this on Civil Rights Advocacy and commented:

Thanks Nel for highlighting this issue. I did not know that "One segment of the U.S. population not covered by the Supreme Court ruling that legalizes marriage equality is Native Americans living on reservations." Why? Because Congress or the tribes themselves must make that decision since reservations are sovereign lands and apparently are not under the direct purview of the US Supreme Court. I'm am pleased however to hear that "many tribes have changed their laws to legalize marriage equality or ruled that they will follow the rules of the state where reservations are located, but ten tribes, including the two largest ones of Cherokee Nation and the Navajo, have acts that prohibit same-gender marriage." I hope my readers read and then support their Native brothers and sisters in their efforts to gain same-sex gender equality within their tribal nations.
