While it may be an easy talking point for some to say, "I'm not a single issue voter... LGBT issues aren't all that matter," the actual truth about the intersection of LGBT rights and economic justice is inescapable.
In the fight for LGBT equality, often it seems as if others don't understand just how normal our lives truly are. The right wing has been so effective in demonizing our community as something exotic, sexually driven, and threatening.
Today, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people are targeted. Tomorrow, they may come for you. Everyone, therefore, has a self-interest in actively working to dismantle all the many forms of bigotry, including heterosexism.
