SB, your March 18th vid was removed. Yeah, I'm just now getting caught up on emails. What was it?

Here's a trailer I ran across, from 2010. I'm involved in the care of many elderly folks - many in their 80s and 90s, one is 100 and several are close to 100. I don't know a single one who identifies as LGBT. I know a few LGBT folks in their 60s and 70s. The trailer points out that LGBT people often don't have families who care for them, but some do. The truth is, many straight people don't either. Churches and church-based nursing homes are sources of comfort and community. I walked a fine line in my mother's nursing home, which was religious based. I could not transport her the 2000 miles to my house, and she refused when younger and more able. So I tolerated the Jesus portraits and chapel and chaplains' parasitism. My nightmare: being prayed over, being forced to eat meat, having religion forced on me. I've been an understanding, secure, and supportive partner to my partner - I hope he doesn't dump me when I'm old. Sometimes I think about when I'm old, I'll my house into an LGBT foster home for the elderly. It's a long way away, and no one likes to think about aging - neither straight or LGBT people - but it's pat of life. For those who are already there, they deserve better.

AnneT thank you for the link.  It's moving to see the human faces of the people affected by the inhumane ballot measure, where people will be voting for or, I expect more likely against, human rights, in North Carolina.

"Well, some people like being pissed on."

I've met one.

That was one weird-ass night I'd not care to repeat in a hurry....
