I really don't have anything new, exciting or interesting to share. I just came across this photo of the mayor of DC, Adrian Fenty (on the right in the pic), and decided I wanted to share it with you. Mayor Fenty has been a tremendous ally of the LGBT community since he took the office. He was very vocal about his support of same sex marriage and has not allowed any homophobic backlash to sway him away from supporting our causes. Apparently he is losing his popularity among many in DC's African-American community and I wonder is his stand on behalf of gays and lesbians is contributing to this. If so I say more power to you Fenty. It is time for our politicians to do what is right and not what is popular. And by the way, you look go while you're doing it. In the words of Rocky Balboa . . ."ADRIAN!!!"

The gay rights issue is a small one, mainly due to good old Marion Berry and his loud voice, but, the bigger issue that the AA community has the fast pace of regentrification he is doing that's send more and more of the AA community from DC as they can no longer afford the city.
