A Heartbreaking Picture of Discrimination is Worth a Thousand Words
My IRL gay blog world pal Bil Browning sent over this photo of discrimination in action that I just had to share with you. I think Bil says it best:
Yesterday, Phillipa was forced to abandon her family and return to England. The United States government says that she’s not fit to stay in the country with her loved ones because her family isn’t good enough.
Gone. Phillipa has left the building – and the country. This devoted mother is now half a world away from her child and wife. And all for what? Why is this still happening?
Stop breaking up our families. Stop ruining our lives. DOMA and the dozens of associated laws – like this one preventing same-sex foreign nationals from remaining in America like their straight counterparts enjoy the right to – need to go. NOW.
