The secret to effective nonviolent resistance -- Jamila Raqib
After the massacre in Orlando last Sunday, we have all become aware th
at the fight for equality for LGBT citizens is far from over. The history of the LGBT Rights Movement, just like the Civil Rights Movement and Women’s Rights Movement, is a history of successful nonviolent resistance against homophobic laws that violate basic human rights. Not only does Ms. Raqib teach us how nonviolent resistance is more than just protesting and voicing one’s opinion, she shows us that nonviolent resistance is more powerful than any weapon of war.
The myth of the gay agenda -- LZ Granderson
Mr. Granderson uses comedy to demonstrate the absurdity of the gay agenda in this talk and how LGBT people merely wish to achieve equality, love, and respect in our nation. “I’ve yet to receive my copy of this gay agenda,” Granderson said. He pulls from his own life experience and the Constitution itself to show us all how LGBT rights are enshrined in the founding document of our nation.
