So I think this will be my last official post on QL about Robin Williams. He’s been put to rest and with everything in me I hope he finds the peace that escaped him here. I missed the Emmys this year but I heard there was this tribute. I watched it and I decided I wanted to post it along with some of my final thoughts…
So here is definitely two of my all-time funny men. David Letterman talked about Robin Williams and paid tribute to the late comedian with a video montage of his 50 appearances on the show.
So I woke up this morning and I realized we hit a milestone here in Queer Landia land. We hit the 3,000 follower mark and it was a real treat to see this morning as I await my first cup of coffee.

Methodist Pastor, Rev. Frank Schaefer, was given his ordination credentials back today after being stripped of them 6 months ago for performing a wedding for his gay son. After serving a 30 day suspension for performing the ceremony and then refusing to denounce the practice of marrying same-sex couples he was bounced from the denomination and stripped of his ministry rights in the church.

MAP’s new report, A Broken Bargain for LGBT Workers of Color, offers a groundbreaking analysis of the issues faced by LGBT workers of color in the United States. The report examines how LGBT workers of color face unique challenges related to their race and ethnicity and their sexual orientation and/or gender identity. In particular, LGBT workers of color are hindered by three major barriers: educational barriers; hiring bias and on-the-job discrimination; and unequal pay, benefits, and taxation. As a result, LGBT people of color are some of the most disadvantaged workers in the United States-and face extraordinarily high rates of unemployment and poverty.
