I think if I had to draw up a list of the 5 LIVING human beings that I admire most--John Lewis would be in that top five. In fact, believe it or not, he would rate above my President.

He allows me to now stand up and say I am proud to have came from Birmingham. Such a progressive thinker.

Another heterosexual giving a keynote speech at a gay event. Gay people need to be independent. We carry all the heterosexual baggage around because that is what we grew up with. Always putting heterosexuals at the very top of everything gay is apart of the heterosexual baggage. We are of equal value to heterosexuals, act like it.

@ DeShawn: "Always putting heterosexuals at the very top of everything gay is apart of the heterosexual baggage. We are of equal value to heterosexuals, act like it."

You got that from Lewis' speech? I got just the opposite. Here is a straight black man who was a HERO of the 1960s student rides and march on Washington. And he is more committed to gay rights than many of our own gays, black, white or otherwise.

John Lewis says fight for your rights NOW. Don't wait and don't take excuses. Read this blog or other blogs and many people have excuses why we shouldn't push to repeal DOMA, file this lawsuit, fight for marriage here, fighr for ENDA there .. it's always an excuse b/c as gays (esp black gays) we have been taught to take a few scraps and sit dkown.

If you watched his speech, I'm amazed that was your takeaway. And Rod thank you, I love Congressman Lewis!
