Remembering Theo Kirkland

This weekend Washington will recognize and honor and remember one of it's own heroes. Theodore Kirkland passed away in February of this year, but the legacy he left on the city will never be forgotten. He activism was without limits a he has left his footprints all over DC. Theo was co-founder of several DC organizations including Black Pride, Best Friends and GLF/ DC.

Though I may never have known Theo, I can tell you that he left an impression on me. Having attended several black pride celebrations around the country I can honestly say that DC is one of my favorites. So to one of the organizers of this phenomenal event I say thank you. Thank you Theo for creating a venue where LGBT African-Americans can gather and fellowship and party and unite in solidarity. I also say thank you to Theo for being an advocate on LGBT issues.

With DCs Black Pride Celebration coming up, I'm hoping many of those in attendance will take a moment to recognize this terrific man for contributions he gave our community.

Many Gays, Lesbians, Transgenders and Queers vote for Emanuel Pleitez today in California

There are even "Queer" Videos for Emanuel Pleitez

Seat in House of Representatives vacated by Hilda Solis, Secretary of Labor for Mr Obama

Emanuel Pleitez campaigns with his Mother, but he is not a pampered child or a whinner.

He is a winner but not a whinner.

He is "Muy Macho, Mucho Macho" !! but has many Queer friends, see the videos from "La Reina"...

In fact Pleitez has worked with Obama in the Transition Team, is only 26 years old and is the strongest guy in Economics.
