Another Beautiful Light Flickers Out

""We must keep reaching across the table and, in the tradition of Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King, feed each other."
Yolanda Denise King

November 17, 1955 – May 15, 2007

"In the 1950s and 60s, African-American men and women made some choices--often dangerous ones--and they were joined by men and women of goodwill, gay and straight, from all races and backgrounds, and together, tremedous progress was made toward the betterment of our nation.

The civil rights movement served as the inspiration and paved the way for all the movements for human rights which followed it--the women's movement, the peace movement, and, of course, the rights of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Americans.

We have come a long way. And while the scars and stains of racism remain, the fact is, racial discrimination is no longer legal. However, discrimination under the rule of law still exists. If you are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, you do not have the same rights as other Americans. You cannot marry. And while there has been some progress, thanks to the work this organization [Out & Equal Workplace Advocates] in the workplace, you still face discrimination in the workplace, and in our armed forces. For a nation that prides itself on liberty, justice and equality for all, this it totally unacceptable."

Well - that was fun while it lasted.

The music is gone and will not be offered again. I made it very clear that if the links got farmed out to other people that it would all go bye-bye, and so it has. Every post I made was friends locked, so it had to be someone here on my friends list.

So whomever it was, thanks a metric fuckton on behalf of everyone who wasn't abusing it, because you ruined it all for them too. You didn't fuck me, you fucked them.

New T-Shirt Transfers - Just For You

In keeping with my tradition of offering T-shirt transfers just before Pride, I give you 12 new/updated designs, all for free - just 'cause I'm nice like that.

All you have to do is download the transfer, print it on iron-on transfer paper (you can get it at Walmart, Target, Staples, anywhere you can get printer paper, really) and follow the transfer paper directions. The transfer itself is a large, hi-res 8.5" X 11" PDF document image in reverse so that it'll appear correctly on your t-shirt once you iron it on. Enjoy, and remember that Jeebus said share, so link to this and pass them on. Doing it at home will save time and money instead of paying CafePress to do it for you. This way you can keep the costs down because for the price of one CafePress shirt, you can buy several blank tees and a pack of transfer paper and have lots more than one.

To save each .PDF design, click on the [DOWNLOAD DESIGN] link and open the file. Go into the File menu at the top and save the document or at least a copy of it. Feel free to link to this post, and thanks in advance for it!
