ENDA Protest Shuts Down Las Vegas Blvd.

I wish I had taken an earlier flight to Las Vegas Tuesday for Netroots Nation 2010 so I could join the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) demonstration in front of the Statue of Liberty that adorns New York New York’s exterior. Yes, it was 106 degrees, and that shows total commitment to get workplace equality passed. So does getting arrested which is what happened to Lt. Dan Choi and seven other demonstration participants. Lt. Choi was discharged from the military because of his arrest during a DADT rally earlier this year.

Lt. Choi was released by early afternoon and joined us at the LGBT caucus pre-sessions.

Me and Lt Choi. He is so awesome.
