WE ARE ASKING FOR HELP & RECIPROCATION FROM ALL OTHER LGBT EQUALITY GROUPS/INDIVIDUALS & OUR MANY STRAIGHT ALLIES
The LGBT Equality group LET'S REACH 1 MILLION PEOPLE CAMPAIGN...It's a start! LGBT EQUALITY is asking our brothers and sisters in other LGBT Equality groups, all LGBT individuals not in any equality groups, and all of our wonderful straight allies for some help. We currently have a CHALLENGE from a US CONGRESSMAN that we are trying to meet and if met, the LGBT could garner additional support in Washington, as well as make a huge statement to society about our fight for FULL CIVIL RIGHTS, which will then make achieving MARRIAGE EQUALITY so much easier. Part of the challenge is to reach our membership goal of 1 MILLION MEMBERS and with ELECTION YEAR, would give the LGBT a HUGE VOICE in the outcome of the elections. PLEASE, let's put aside any differences among us, any rivalries between us, etc. and do what is in the BEST INTEREST of the entire LGBT community.
Our group supports a huge bulk of all the LGBT Equality campaigns and petitions out there, as well as our own, in addition to sponsoring the WORLDWIDE LGBT CIVIL RIGHTS MARCH in 2012, and we are there to lend a hand to all of you in your own works for the advancement of our rights. We are open to all other LGBT Equality groups and their postings in our group. PLEASE, WE ARE ASKING FOR YOUR HELP NOW! Let's not make this about recognition for any one individual in their works, LET'S MAKE THIS ABOUT UNITY AMONG OURSELVES FOR THE BETTERMENT OF THE ENTIRE LGBT AS A CLASS OF CITIZENS WITHIN OUR SOCIETY!
For those of you who are not a member, please take the time to JOIN (just click on article title above) and help us to MEET THIS CHALLENGE! Here is our group description, which is always evolving as our work evolves and moves forward for Full CIVIL RIGHTS:

JUST DO IT - NOW
Remember friends to stop all the emails and notifications you will receive from this group, just go to the top of this page under "notifications" and you can turn all notifications off and you won't be bombarded with them!
THIS IS AN LGBT MOVEMENT FOR FULL CIVIL RIGHTS. WE TAKE ACTION & NOT JUST ANOTHER SOCIAL PARTY. WE INITIATE CAMPAIGNS, PETITIONS, MARCHES, ACCEPT CHALLENGES FOR OUR CIVIL RIGHTS, ETC. AND FULLY TAKE ACTION ON THOSE, AS WELL AS WE ENDORSE, SUPPORT & TAKE ACTIONS ON THOSE INITIATED BY OTHER ACTIVISTS/ADVOCATES!
OUR CORE MISSION IS TO ACHIEVE LGBT EQUALITY THROUGH PROPER AND PEACEFUL CHANNELS EMPLOYING MANY DIFFERENT VEHICLES ALONG THE WAY. STRONG EMPHASIS IS PLACED ON ENLIGHTENING AND EDUCATING SOCIETY IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE THE AMPLE UNDERSTANDING AND ACCEPTANCE THAT IS NECESSARY TO GARNER THE SUPPORT WE NEED TO WIN AT THE POLLS AND IN WASHINGTON...
NO, the LGBT community doesn't need UNDERSTANDING and ACCEPTANCE to be entitled to equality, as our rights are our CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS that are UNALIENABLE AND UNCONDITIONAL, but we have to be realistic in that certain understanding and acceptance (ample as mentioned above) are necessary along the way, whether we like it or not, as the fight ends up in Washington and/or the courts and we are just helping pave the way for these UNALIENABLE AND UNCONDITIONAL CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS!
Originally, I started this group and campaign as a result of feedback I received from my first book released and this group is forever evolving along with what needs to be accomplished for our FULL CIVIL RIGHTS. I get feedback all the time that society needs education and enlightenment if members of society are ever going to allow equality to become a reality at the polls, courts, and/or in Washington. I get heterosexuals telling me their homophobia is almost a thing of the past after reading the book. I get homosexuals telling me they are so glad someone opened up their life so society can see who we really are. I've been told it has helped tremendously in the process of understanding your own inner self, including your sexual orientation and has given many the courage to come out. Parents and friends of LGBT are saying it has helped them in their understanding and acceptance of homosexuality; it leaves a compelling argument definitely in favor of all LGBT individuals that WILL HELP IN OUR FIGHT FOR EQUALITY...SOCIETY MUST KNOW THE REAL US AND WHO AND WHAT WE ARE!
I believe EDUCATION is the key to eradicating homophobia worldwide. TOGETHER, WITH ALL OF OUR INDIVIDUAL & JOINT EFFORTS, WE WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE & SHOW SOCIETY THAT WE ARE LIVING THE LIFE WE WERE BORN TO LIVE AND THE LIFE GOD INTENDED US TO LIVE...
The feedback we are getting is awesome and we can't keep up with all the messages, etc. and I am so excited to be doing what I'm doing for LGBT Equality Worldwide...it has been a lifelong dream! We just recently received some correspondence from a Washington politician who issued this group a challenge; the details of that challenge are located in the document section of this page.
The LGBT community is somewhat divided on many of the ways to accomplish this achievement of our rights. You know think about it, many LGBT individuals complain about some of the politicians who are in all likelihood closeted, etc. or were at one time and how they actually did more harm for us than good in order to somewhat conceal their own sexual preferences at that time and not draw attention to themselves, or they used our platform for their own personal gain, etc, and I'm sure you know where this is coming from. Well, could it have been because many of the various LGBT lobbyists/groups are so separated from each other and many do not have a unified common supporting of the entire LGBT community that it scared some of the politicians against actually aligning themselves with us. I truly believe this particular politician who issued us the challenge wants to see the LGBT community come together and show Washington that we can come together on common ground and be that segment of society that wants to work for our rights and not just talk about them, a segment of society that wants to not draw so much attention to the fact that we are LGBT, but that wants to draw the attention to the fact that we are a minority class that is entitled to equal protections under the law and the same civil rights all other classes of citizens enjoy. IT MAKES SENSE DOESN'T IT...WELL, LET'S SHOW WASHINGTON AND THE POLITICIANS THAT WE ARE THAT SEGMENT OF SOCIETY THAT WILL WORK TOGETHER, IN A UNIFIED MANNER; it doesn't matter than there are a lot of various LGBT groups working on our equality, what matters is that we can show WASHINGTON and the POLITICIANS in some way, that we can come together to achieve them and just maybe this CHALLENGE is the way the entire LGBT community can finally show WASHINGTON and the POLITICIANS that we can be that unified class of society that needs the support of WASHINGTON and the POLITICIANS!
P.S. The following is a portion of a recent GROUP PRESS RELEASE issued that needs to be an integral part of this group description:
We are looking for some volunteers who would like to work with some of us more directly in portions of our advocacy work. Most can be done from your computer. It is a lot of fun and it gives you a chance to be more involved directly in the achievement of our equal rights. THE GROUP appreciates this and it will go a long way in garnering more support of the entire LGBT Community (all members), our straight allies, as well as the people we need in Washington. There is no secret agenda to this group as some have wanted others to think; I believe these non-believers and hate spreading individuals have been weeded out. As mentioned in many previous posts, my own book is just one vehicle that has been used to garner hundreds of supporters we didn't have before, but it is only one of many ways to educate and enlighten society and like I've said the proceeds go right back into the essentials of continuing this campaign and the journey we are all on to win our rights. We never ask for money or donations from anyone and never will. There are many groups where the creator and administrators push their own agenda through with their own books, etc. as well as fundraisers and this is their living and they need the money; THIS IS NOT MY LIVING, it is MY DREAM OF ACHIEVING TOTAL LGBT EQUALITY for all of us. THIS GROUP IS ALL OF OURS AND GETTING OUR MESSAGE OUT THERE AND LETTING PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT US IS A VERY IMPORTANT PART OF IT. WE NEED TO SHOW OUR SUPPORTERS BOTH IN AND OUT OF WASHINGTON THAT THERE IS A UNIFIED SINGLE GROUP OF US THAT WILL SHOW THEM WE CAN COME TOGETHER AS ONE AND BE THERE FOR THEM AS THEY ALIGN WITH US & HELP US ON THIS JOURNEY OF OURS! YOU ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE AND YOU ARE ON YOUR WAY TO BEING A PART OF HISTORY IN THE MAKING! Thank you for taking the time to read this...HUGS to all!
