Come Meet Kate Kendell This Weekend

I am so excited to meet one of the leading activists for lesbian rights this weekend in Portland. Kate Kendell, head of the National Center for Lesbian Rights is coming to the Rose City to hang out with us and chat. One of the events is free--at a cool new lesbian-owned coffee shop. The other is a fund raiser for Basic Rights Oregon. Attend one or both. I'll be there Saturday. If I didn't have my neighborhood block party, I'd be there Sunday too. Some come on out and meet Kate and Dipstick!

The legal landscape for LGBT people is ever-changing, and this year, that has proved to be especially true! With new victories and defeats occurring at a faster pace than ever, it’s hard to keep track of where our struggle for justice stands, and how and where our relationships are protected. Join Kate Kendell and Basic Rights Oregon’s Executive DirectorJeana Frazzini for a presentation and discussion on the latest legal and policy issues affecting the LGBT community, including an update on moving forward with marriage equality in Oregon and other states and federal legislation and litigation.
