There IS Hope for Us Yet

I was excited to see the news from New Hampshire today telling of that state's new Civil Union legislation. While it doesn't provide for same sex marriage, it is one more positive step toward full inclusion of same gender couples. On the total other end of the spectrum, the mayor and city council in Chisinau in the Eastern European country of Moldava have denied a permit for this Sunday's Pride march -- this in spite of the court decision allowing GLBT people the right of assembly. There have been threats of arrest, and even some death threats, but the march is scheduled to go on as planned. Keep the marchers in your thoughts and prayers that all will be well.
