A Great Day in America

Saturday, June 27th, 2015

Obviously, on the eve of Gay Pride week around the world, a great day in America. Here is the Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington singing the National Anthem in front of a heavily guarded Supreme Court…it’s really just very moving. Been following much of what’s been happening today on activist David Mixner’s social media…he’s been working for around 50 years for this very day…it’s a great day for America and really reminds us that when the country gets it right….it continues, as Thomas Jefferson said it would, to be the great hope of the world. It’s true that we have a long way to go….in terms of making it this way for all people….all over the world.

The Activists: Jennicet Gutierrez, an activist on behalf of undocumented LGBT immigrants on Democracy Now from The Georgia Pictures Company on Vimeo.

Jennicet Gutiérrez, an undocumented trans woman immigrant from Mexico, interrupted the president at the beginning of his address shouting for him to “release all LGBTQ immigrants from detention and stop all deportations” Obama fired back, to the the sound of applause from annoyed White House guests, and told her, “You’re in my house” and “Shame on you” before having her escorted out of the premises.

“By booing me and not letting me be clear on the message, yeah, it seemed like they don’t care; to me it was very hurtful and heartbreaking to see my own community turning a back on me,” Gutierrez said to Fox News Latino referring to the crowd at the White House.

“It seemed like they were more concerned to be firing up social media with selfies and knowing they were at the White House with the president,” she added. “To me that is not an issue. An issue is the violence that we are facing in these detention centers,” she said.
