One LGBT Person Being Killed Every Eight Days

Here’s a sobering video from FightOutLoud.org… Just in the United States, one LGBT person is being killed every 8 days so far this year. Yes, they’re often people of color and often femmy, drag queens, or transsexuals, but things like this just shouldn’t happen.

Ellen DeGeneris did a wonderful segment on her show recently about the killing of Larry (Lawrence) King. He was a kid who wanted one of his male classmates to be his valentine and the kid shot and killed him two days later…

It seems like whenever its an election year and gay marriage is being discussed the attacks worsen. But that only goes to show how important these issues are…

Please talk to your friends and family about these issues, and consider whether the politicians you vote for would work hard to end these killings…
