The Song Remains The Same

On Tuesday I attended the HRC/Victory Fund luncheon and on Wednesday I attended the LGBT caucus at the convention center in Denver. Many stories were broke in the past few days, but one event passed by without a word. In a very consistent manner, Barney Frank again signaled that when ENDA is introduced, it will NOT be fully inclusive.

Speakers including the likes of Tammy Baldwin, Diego Sanchez, and others have repeatedly spoke about the hopefulness of an inclusive Employment Non-Discrimination Act, but that seems more like a wish, than even close to being a reality. Some in the activist community have commented that I’ve “given up”, but I’m not a believer in false hope. Barney Frank is the shepherd, and we are the sheep.
