The Gay Agenda has been revealed - FINALLY!
I don't know about you, but when I came out no one was there to hand me a toaster oven and my own copy of The Gay Agenda - but finally one is available - for the National Equality March on Washington.
Te National Equality March will take place in Washington DC on the weekend of October 9-11th and there's something for everyone on the agenda. Training sessions from GLAAD for the Media, a Camp Courage training for LGBT grassroots activists, events for youth - including a dance, tactics to help repeal DADT, a wreath laying at Arlington National Cemetery and memorial services....all leading up to the great National Equality March set for the 11th at Noon.
So are you going to Washington?
You should? If you're still up in the air about how to get there, you should consider jumping on the bus with the folks from Join The Impact Chicago. For only $100 you'll get roundtrip transport on a luxury coach leaving Chicago on Saturday evening, arriving in DC in plenty of time for the march and then heading back to Chicago to get you back to work in plenty of time on Monday morning. They've already filled up two buses and are selling tickets for their third bus - don't you want to be a piece of history?
Check out the full Gay Agenda after the jump
