Signal boost for our fellow Tumblrer meg!!!


Check out this video directed by my friend Will Welch, and edited/produced by me! It’s called “Out in Wyoming: LGBT Advocacy in the Cowboy State” and gives a summary of what’s coming up in this legislative session, advice from Wyoming state legislators on advocacy, plus instructions on lobbying and communicating with your state legislators — even if you don’t live in Wyoming. (Yes, it’s a little long, but we worked really hard, it’s entertaining, and YouTube has a pause button.)

However, if you know people who live in Wyoming, live in Wyoming yourself, or live near Wyoming, definitely share this video. We have a domestic partnership bill, a marriage equality bill, and a non-discrimination bill going to their respective committees on Monday beginning at noon. We’ll also be demonstrating in front of the state house starting at 9 AM in favor of equality on Monday, January 28. If you live close enough to Cheyenne to get to the state house, DO IT!

This action alert from Wyoming Equality’s Jeran Artery gives point-by-point instructions on what you can do to help. We have an excellent chance of passing non-discrimination and domestic partnership bills in Wyoming this year! If you live in Laramie, we’re phone banking tomorrow in the UW Union RRC from 4pm-7pm. It’s mobilizing constituents around the pro-LGBT bills in the legislature. All the bills have bipartisan support. Here’s the bills, with Republican sponsors in bold:

HOUSE BILL NO. HB 168 Domestic partnerships-rights and responsibilities
Sponsored by: Representative(s) Connolly, Byrd, GingeryGreenePetroff, Throne, Wallis and Zwonitzer, Dn. and Senator(s) Burns, Craft, Rothfuss and Von Flatern (5 Democrats; 7 Republicans)

HOUSE BILL NO. HB 169 Marriage-definition 
Sponsored by: Representative(s) Connolly, Byrd, GingeryPetroff, Throne, Wallis and Zwonitzer, Dn. and Senator(s) Craft and Rothfuss (5 Democrats; 4 Republicans)

SENATE FILE NO. SF 131 Discrimination
Sponsored by: Senator(s) Rothfuss,Burns, Case, Craft, Esquibel, F., Hastert and Von Flatern and Representative(s) Blake, Brown, Connolly, Gingery, Greene, Petroff, Wallis and Zwonitzer, Dn(6 Democrats; 9 Republicans)

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE — pass it on! And thank you! 


Please, keep sharing! The bills have been assigned to friendly committees and we’re likely to get them out of committee. BUT WE NEED HELP! 

For Wyomingites, there will be a lobbying and testifying workshop this Sunday in Cheyenne at 7 PM. It’s presented by Wyoming Equality and Geoff Kors, senior legislative and policy strategist from the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR). Be there or be square!

In which one of Tumblr’s finest pitches an important campaign in her state, and we give her post a signal boost.

blahnikbitch says: My dad’s a car got stolen last night from the parking area under our apartments. He’s a photographer and it had his camera and other tools and papers in there. If you could please send this out/signal boost, I’d really appreciate it. He doesn’t know what to do. It’s a 2008 Toyota Solara Convertible and it may/may not (now) have the license plate MNDGSMZ. It’s around the Lafayette, CA area and the police have also been notified, so if you find it please call (925)284-5010. Thank you infinitely.

» SFB says: Sure, we’ll offer up a signal boost for you. (The phone number for the city’s police department is above; here’s their site.) She also notes that the vehicle is all black. If you happen to be in the region, be sure to keep an eye out! And good luck finding your dad’s vehicle! — Ernie @ SFB
