Tomorrow: Make Albany less banny, all

by Jeremy Hooper

We've talked before about our undying affection for the Empire State Pride Agenda. The New York state advocacy group is truly one of the hardest working, most focused LGBT organizations in the nation, and we've been inspired by their infectious drive on more than one occasion. And we admit it: Our lil' online advocacy outfit has a bit of an acti-visi-crush on its older, more seasoned, Manhattan-based mentor.

Picture 12-48Well tomorrow the Proud Agenda-pushers are hosting their annual Equality & Justice Day, and event in which folks from all over the state (1300+ this year) haul tail up to Albany to fight for things like marriage equality, extending non-discrimination protections to the transgender community, making schools safer for LGBT youth, and more funding for health and human services needs. It's a day to lobby legislators, hear inspiring speakers give inspiring speeches, and both celebrate the state's successes and push for the goals we've yet to achieve. All this and a box lunch!

For more information on the worthwhile day, head over to the Pride Agenda's site for more information:

E& J Day [Pride Agenda]

While it's too late to register online and get on the officially sanctioned busses, you can still attend the day, just as long as you can find a way to get ye'self to Albany. So be it via car, bike, unicycle, or carrier pigeon-powered lawn chair, we hope that all of you in the area will consider taking a day out of your busy lives to join the struggle.
