We will be tabling at Gainesville's Pride Fest tomorrow, Saturday, October 13, from 1 to 6 p.m. in the Downtown Community Plaza. Come by and say hi!

We have new voter outreach palm cards that we will be distributing to folks when we table, and we'll also be giving them to the local DEC so that they can hand them out to people who they identify as concerned with GLBT rights when they do door-to-door canvassing. These cards explain our reasons why GLBT folks should vote for Democrats. Some of our reasons include:

  • There are only two openly gay members of Congress, both are Democrats.
  • Every single Democrat in the U.S. Senate voted in favor of including "sexual orientation" in the Hate Crimes Bill.
  • The five Gainesville City Commissioners who approved the city’s Domestic Partners Registry are Democrats.
  • Craig Lowe, Gainesville’s first and only openly gay city commissioner, is a lifelong Democrat.
Our next meeting will be Thursday, November 8 at 5:45 p.m.

Our December meeting will be a Holiday Social - bring a friend or two, or three - Thursday, December 13 at 5:45 p.m.
