GAY CIVIL RIGHTS
A coalition of black pastors filed an amicus brief in Michigan's gay marriage trial last Wednesday. The group hope to defeat efforts to make same-sex marriage legal in Michigan and in the brief they particularly rejected comparisons between the gay civil rights movement and the struggle for African Americans in this country.
Nationwide legalization of same-sex marriage is a historic step towards full LGBT equality, but there's still much to be done. Intersectional advocacy isn't a prime focus of leading organizations yet; there are few organizations that focus only on serving transgender or bisexual Americans, and funding for LGBT advocacy at all levels is not completely equitable.
