So as part of the process of moving QL to our server space and the downloadable version of WordPress it’s give me a chance to see review and edit some of our content and pages. I’ve went through and cleaned up the Queer Links page on our site and I was a little sad to see how many queer sites went under or just called it quits over the last year.

Last month we started testing our community blogger program here on QN as a way to get more boots on the ground and restore our local flavor. We want to help promote local gay and gay-friendly business and events and we’re experimenting with recruiting bloggers who live and work in the cities in our Directory. We kicked off the pilot program with 5 local correspondents and we’ve added two more!
All eyes will be on Washington later this month, as the United States Supreme Court has announced that on September 29, they will consider whether to hear one or more of the federal marriage equality cases in their current term. If they take one of the cases, we could have a nationwide marriage ruling as soon as June 2015.
I make no bones about the fact that I’m a liberal Democrat. I also make no bones about the fact that Republicans are a big part of what’s wrong with this country right now. I don’t dislike Republicans simply because the are Republicans. I dislike, and disdain them as a political party, because they are wrong on almost ALL of the issues that are important to democracy and equality. Case in point: Senate Republicans yet again blocked a vote on the Paycheck Fairness Act that would help ensure women get the same pay for doing the same job as men.
There were some reading materials that went out last week as a part of the community forum series that kicked off last Thursday night at the GLBT History Museum. I actually didn’t make it to the City for the event but one of the online articles that was to be discussed was very well done, very thorough, and very lesbian!
