"Human Rights Campaign" in Boston

The so-called "Human Rights Campaign" is busy in Boston! Tonight there's a Harvard-sponsored forum at the Kennedy School: "Being Young & Gay in America". Well, we know Harvard abandoned critical thinking decades ago, so we're not surprised to see this.

And a gala, festive event not to be missed is the 24th annual (yes, they got quite a head start on us!) "Human Rights Campaign" fundraiser dinner. You can go for only $200 a plate! (The circles we travel in only charge $30-$50 a plat. Shows how well-off this repressed minority really is...)

The dinner's theme is "Leading the way: Ensuring that Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender [what happened to Questioning, Intersex, and Polyamorous?? -- dare we charge discrimination, or at the least, insensitivity?] Americans can be open, honest, and safe at home, at work, and in the community."

"...the largest annual LGBT event in New England is a night to remember. Your support is critical - especially in the historic and challenging times we find ourselves in these days." Marty Rouse, Campaign Director of MassEquality, is receiving a special award for knowing how to throw really great parties in the State House.

Corporate sponsors of the dinner include:
Accenture, Corners, Cingular, Comcast, CVS Pharmacy, Ernst & Young, Evergreen Investments, Gillette, Kimpton Hotels, Mellon New England, Pride Mortgage, Saab Nashua North, SBC Communications, Staples, Verizon.
