This blog is about human rights, pure and simple. It’s called Out of Left Field, so most of the views expressed here will be a little more on the liberal side. (For my international subscribers, the title refers to Left Wing, the more liberal side of politics.) Most of the blogs will be about current gay rights issues. However, there will also be articles and posts on other equality issues as well.
Whether you’re gay, straight, black, white, male, female, it doesn’t matter. We’re all human and we all share the same planet. I’ve been very passionate about equality issues for a long time. While I’ve been thrilled with some of the steps forward we’ve made, I also know we have a long way to go. One thing I’ve come to understand, though, is that I can’t keep complaining about these issues if I’m not willing to do something about it. That’s one of the reasons I started this blog. I wanted a space where we could discuss current issues and get the word out there. I will also be showcasing various charities, nonprofits, fundraisers, events, etc, so if anyone comes across any worthy causes, let me know and I’ll add them to the list.
I want this to be an open forum where we can, not only discuss current stories, but also provide information and come up with ways of getting involved. This is about making a difference, one person at a time.
