Anyone up to creating a FAQ on the LGBT movement for Democrats
We could do it in sections and post each section in GD as we complete them, but keep them archived here in this group for further reference...

2. Im thinking
something either along the lines of a timeline of events. Im not sure if it would be more useful as a issue with a timeline or a timeline showing the issues (meaning heres DADT on the timeline of LGBT rights or heres a history of Gays in the military). Im hoping maybe we could make something that people who already support LGBT rights can learn from - many of our allies and people that claim support really have very rudimentary knowledge of the history and struggle (sadly hats true of even some LGBT people I know too). The main purpose would be to give those that do support us the knowledge to discuss LGBT rights with non-suports from a angle of fact rather than emotion or belief...

3. Sounds good to me.
Give me a topic/direction and I will see what I can do. My areas of "expertise", as it were, are linguistics, general (and some ancient, mostly Greek, Roman, and Some Middle Eastern) history, the Holocaust, homophobia (sociological/societal/individual), heterosexism, I know some about issues within the African-American community (but I am not AA), and entertainment/media portrayal.

You and I can't be the only ones interested in this. Should you X-post in the regular GLBT room and see if you can get some hits?

4. Maybe Thursday?
Im thinking maybe we should cross post it after the election - I don't want it to get lost in the election madness (we both know how DU can look the day after...)

Maybe we should make a list of topics in their own threads? Ill see what I can come up with and post it here and maybe those interested con condense or add to it...
