Cuz when it comes down to it, we are all fighting for equality

Joe Jervis, of Joe.My.God, and Clark Cooper, former head of Log Cabin Republicans don’t see eye to eye on much. One is a fierce fighter for progressive causes and the other a defender of conservative principles. But while they may not agree on how to get there – or even what “there” looks like – both are battling for a day when Americans, irrespective of sexual orientation, are equal under the law.

Sometimes it’s nice to remember that. And that while they may differ, both are gay men, part of a greater LGBT community, and – most importantly – human.

Which reminds me. It’s been way too long since we’ve hung out at the Abby, Timothy…

The same could be said of Timothy Kincaid and Barney Frank–and I’d love to see a picture of the two of you like this.

Nah, that would be like Joe Jervis and Jimmy LaSalvia together;it goes too far.

Okay, you did make me chuckle.

But, though he may irritate the bloody hell out of me, though I think his priorities are Barney first, Party second (and third and fourth) and community some distant fifth, I do recognize that we are on the same side. And if I ever meet Congressman Frank, I’ll try to have my picture taken with him.

Not to suggest that there is ANY comparison, but this weekend I saw the lone picture of MLK and Malcolm X. They met but once, briefly. Again, two people fighting the same cause as differently as could be.
