If not, YOU BETTER, or SiP will hunt you down and take away your sexy license.

Take the survey now!!!!

Let’s start the New Year off in a proactive way, by adding your voice to the Sexual Freedom Report!

This questionnaire will be the foundation for the first report on the State of Sexual Freedom in America today.  If you already responded to the questionnaire, and many of you have, thank you!  If not, we would really value your opinions!

As I shared with you in the first email, the Woodhull Freedom Foundation plans to publish regular reports on the sexual freedom movement, designed to help identify the social changes taking place, or that must take place for progress to be made, on the diverse issues on which we work. We are particularly interested in recognizing opportunities for already-established sexual freedom issue groups to work together.

We would like to know what you think are the most pressing sexual freedom issues this country is facing and so we are asking for a bit of your time and a lot of your knowledge and expertise.

We will treat your responses as confidential, unless you specifically give us permission to share your comments.  To protect the confidentiality of our participants, we will download the responses each day and they will be taken completely offline.  With that assurance, we are also asking that you provide your contact information on the survey.

I do hope that you’ll take some time right now to respond to the questionnaire.  What you think really does matter to us and to this project.

Thanks for your time and your participation!

PS:  Please make sure to give us an email address in the questionnaire so that we can email you a copy of the completed report immediately prior to its public release.

Update on Dallas Eagle raid

Posted in Activism, BDSM, Legal, LGBT Rights, News with tags , , , , , , , on July 13, 2009 by girlonpiano

Okay, so I might have gotten a little swept up with Stonewall Fever.  I’m still pretty skeptical of the timing of the police/TABC “inspection” of the new bar (see earlier post for details), but the witnesses I’ve heard from say that the police and TABC agents were well-mannered and respectful, and were only doing their job.

Now, I don’t know what’s what with all this, and I’m not gonna act like I do.  My friend Mark Frazier has an interesting perspective on the whole thing, and since he owned the Eagle for many years, I’m inclined to trust him.  Here’s what he had to say: Continue reading

Really? Are you kidding me?  Police raided the Rainbow Lounge in Forth Worth on Sunday. They were so aggressive, they caused brain damage in one of the people they arrested.  This is BULLSHIT!!

Stephen Colbert does an outstanding job calling Obama to the mat for his own definition of Stonewall… this is DEFINITELY the Word.

Stonewall Anniversary

Posted in Activism, Legal, LGBT Rights, News, Politics and Sex, You Fucked Up! with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 28, 2009 by girlonpiano

Today marks the 40th anniversary of one of the most important events in the history of LGBT civil rights.  Quick recap for those of you that don’t know – on this day in 1969, police aggressively raided the Stonewall Inn (a gay/lez/trans bar in New York City) and were met with fierce resistance and rioting that brought national attention to issues surrounding gay rights.  This event also spawned the traditional gay pride parades that still occur annually all over the country!

Rather than trying to rehash all the details that everyone else is writing about, I decided to post some great links and articles about it.  There’s lots of good info out there, but here are some of my favorites.
