QueerSOS! Day 36 - Alan Bounville's Gay Gights Message to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand
After he had what was perhaps his last meal, LGBT civil rights activist Alan Bounville delivered a public message to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, LGBT allies, and LGBT activists
In this video, Mr. Bounville urged activists to fight for equal rights, and Mr. Bounville questioned the practise by LGBT voters of calling some our elected officials our ''friends,'' when those officials, who are supposedly our ''friends,'' introduce no legislation that would propose to end most major forms of discimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.
Approximately two hours after the recording of this video, Mr. Bounville was set to begin a water-only fast until Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) or another member of Congress introduced the American Equality Bill, or similar legislation, that would extend civil rights to LGBT Americans and thereby end most major forms of discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
