Mark My Words

by Mark Segal

How many of you watched the ABC miniseries “When We Rise”? Not many, according to the ratings.

That might be due to several factors, among them the way the LGBT history series was promoted and its lukewarm reviews. My take is this:

Mr. President: I write to you today regarding your lifting of the federal guidance on transgender rights in schools. While I am not privy to discussions within your White House, this is viewed by many of us as a victorious win for the bigotry of the Steve Bannon and Vice President Pence parts of your administration – the so-called alt-right constituents. You might regret that advice given to you by this segment of your administration. Here’s why.

Trump As Easy As 1, 2, 3

1. Trump is President-elect. If that angers or frightens you, don’t get upset, get involved.

Trump has already made the statement that marriage equality is already the law of the land (in a “60 Minutes” interview last Sunday). But how about the Equality Act so that members of our community are not discriminated against? The reality is that, unless the Republican Congress decides it’s on their list, it will die — unless that organization I mentioned above begins to concentrate on those Republicans.
