(OKLAHOMA CITY) To commemorate National Coming Out Day on Saturday, October 11, 2008, I am exercising my gay genetic heritage and declaring Rep. Sally Kern of Oklahoma an honorary gay/lesbian person in recognition of the fine work she has done to keep our community's issues in the forefront of media attention, both here in Oklahoma and nationwide.
In a country turned upside down by religious and financial turmoil I feel that it is important to keep our American values straight and forthright. Her latest pronouncements have illustrated the debt our gay brothers and sisters owe to her. http://tinyurl.com/3qenfk and http://tinyurl.com/4jjsdz
