Who doesn’t want love and peace?
While we’re on the topic of civil rights and equality, Capitol Hill Seattle blog has posted an event on their page:
QUEERS AND THEIR ALLIES UNITE: TAKE BACK THE NIGHT
A Candlelight Vigil against Anti-LGBTQ Violence in Capitol Hill
* Date: Saturday, Feburary 28th, 2009
* Time: 8:00pm-9:30pm
* Location: Meet at the Pillars on Boren and Pike (Capitol Hill)
A recent upsurge in hate crimes against members of LGBTQ community has called the Queer Ally Coalition into action. We are fighting back against the violence and hatred with a peaceful candlelight vigil. We would like to invite you to light a candle for the people who have fallen victim to hate crimes in our community and throughout the rest of the country.
Ricin threats were made to ELEVEN gay bars in January. So come and show your support for love and peace! (and equal rights, in life and liberty, and the pursuit of happiness…!)
