Be Prepared for Watercooler Wednesday

Hi, y’all.

Tonight I was at the OccuQueers meeting, Occupy Austin’s queer working group. With other members of Occupy, we’re preparing for the opening of the Texas Legislature in January (our state government only meets every 2 years). We’re writing letters to some newly elected queer legislators to ask them to support us, and offering our support to them if they take difficult stands that favor the 99%.

Our allies GetEqual TX shared this miniature documentary about the importance of gays in the Boy Scouts. I thought it’d make a bit of interesting evening viewing for the Watercooler set.

How are you? What’s on your mind? This is the latest open thread.
