In other (happier) news, the President has proclaimed June "LGBT Pride Month." This month marks the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, and same-sex marriage has officially been legalized in six states - Rhode Island is now the only New England holdout against marriage equality.
Still, I'm not thrilled. Personally, and perhaps this is superficial, I would really like to see a "Q" at the end of that LGBT. I wouldn't be opposed to an "I" or an "A" either, although I can see how it begins to be unwieldy. Queer, though, I think is important; it leaves room for ambiguity.
