NH House rejects transgender rights bill

The hopes of transgender people for inclusion in New Hampshire's laws was flushed down the loo today. The N.H. House with 52 Democrats absent from roll call voted 157 to 172 not to move HB415 to the Senate.

Flush. Sometimes it's impossible to tell what party affiliation the arms are that are dragging us down.

New Hampshire House Votes for Marriage Equality.

Today the House voted 186 to 179 to pass HB436 to extend marriage equality to gay/lesbian couples.

The bill lost by one vote on the first attempt but after voting on several other motions, the House reconsidered the vote and passed the measure 186 to 179.

The bill now moves on to the Senate.

This was a very close vote and we succeeded only because so many of you contacted your elected officials.

The opposition is mounting a full fledge attack, radio ad's, phone banks and door to door canvasing.

We need to match their efforts call for call, and that will take resources.

Please give generously!

The vote on anti-discrimination based on gender identity and expression will take place this afternoon.

¡Actúa! : Protesta asesinato de defensor de Álvaro Miguel GLBT/ Protest murder of Alvaro Miguel Rivera

Protest the murder of GLBT defender Alvaro Miguel Rivera

On March 6, 2009, unknown men killed the human rights defender Álvaro Miguel Rivera in the city of Cali, Colombia.
Álvaro was the representative of a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) organization, Tínku. He was also a member of Planeta Paz, a national peace network, and of the Polo Rosa, the LGBTI section of a left wing political party. Álvaro was far and foremost a committed activist who worked for the rights of the LGBTI community and people living with HIV. In the past, threats against his life had already made Álvaro flee Villavicencio, a city in Eastern Colombia.
