Alabama Day of Equality

Hi folks…sorry for the lack of posting today,  but I’m in Birmingham, Alabama, where I gave a talk about “Educating Potential Political Allies and “Urban vs. Suburban vs. Rural and Perceptions of Rights and Community,” at the Day of Equality. I’ll have a wrap up on this and pix later; Kate took some video as well.

Last night I was kindly ferried to the “Meet the Speakers Party” reception last night by Rep. Patricia Todd (named a trailblazer in the 40th anniversary edition of The Advocate) and her partner Jennifer. Let me tell you — these two have wicked cool senses of humor. We’re the guests of Kathy and Bill McMullen (Kathy of Birmingham Blues) at tonight’s gala.

I did have to post one picture from today now — the Equality conference was sharing space at the venue — the Birmingham Civic Center —  with a truly priceless event:

I didn’t see the “faith” healing fraud, but I thought the irony was delicious.

A few more pix…

At the silent auction on Saturday, Kate and I outbid Patricia Todd for this hilarious sign. I told Patricia that she could come take a look at where we hang it at our place when she comes to Durham to speak at Equality NC’s gala in November.

More to come later.Related:
