Democrats & LGBT

Below is DNC‘s platform on LGBT which is something that I care about as a member of the LGBT community and proud supporter of LGBT rights.

“Democrats believe that LGBT rights are human rights and that American foreign policy should advance the ability of all persons to live with dignity, security, and respect, regardless of who they are or who they love. We applaud President Obama’s historic Presidential Memorandum on International Initiatives to Advance the Human Rights of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered Persons, which combats criminalization, protects refugees, and provides foreign assistance. We will continue to stand with LGBT people around the world, including fighting efforts by any nation to infringe on LGBT rights or ignore abuse.”

President Trump publicly admitted via his personal Twitter account (@realDonaldTrump) that he would protect and fight for the LGBT community against Hillary Clinton.

As you have noticed in the “fake” news that Mr. Trump has explicitly reversed exactly what he said he would. He had instituted a ban on Transgendered persons serving in the US Military going against the leading Generals of the Military. He has trampled all over the LGBT community nationwide as well as worldwide.

When researching the GOP Republicans platform, they have no mention of support towards the rights of LGBT. This is party that is only for one specific person/group, THE WEALTHY.

We must all come together and support each other by voting candidates that will support everyone and not just the wealthy. We can not let the Republicans and Mr. Trump ruin our country.

Proud Democrat

I can say that I am a PROUD Democrat living in a Republican ran county. I support the Iroquois County Democrats. The Democratic Party is there for The People.

While the country is in a state of mess with the Republican Commander-in-Chief and Republican led Congress, we must come together with our differences and elect our rightful officials that will stand up for us when no one will. As you see in the news and social media on the daily, our Republican ran country is ruining our country what it was founded in. We (Democrats) are the change.

Currently the primary election is right before us. We as Americans have the duty to vote and elect the rightful candidates to serve and protect us ALL.

Currently Iroquois County Democrats is hosting an event New Day/New New Day at Town & Country Events in Milford. You can get tickets online at their website or by messaging Iroquois Democrats on Facebook.

Come meet our MC Colleen Callahan and Keynote Speaker State Treasurer Michael Frerichs.

I have also signed up to support our Democratic candidate Chris Kennedy for Governor.

We will turn Illinois and Iroquois County Blue again.

Pride 2017

I can say that this year I won’t be attending Pride 2017 in Chicago like I had plans on doing as it was something that I wanted to do this year. But it’s ok, I am going to go to Champaign-Urbana and go to their Pride celebration and it will be the first time of me going to Pride in Champaign-Urbana during September. I am looking forward to seeing what Champaign-Urbana has to offer for Pride for events as this will be something new and exciting for me to go to this year and am looking forward to going and enjoying myself.

I am going to take a couple of my friends with me so that I’m not going alone as this is something new for me as when I go somewhere new or an event that is new to me, I always go with a friend or a few friends. Although I would much rather go to a much bigger Pride celebration, but one can’t complain as I will be celebrating amongst others in the same thing.

So here’s to Pride 2017 and what it all has to offer.

Equal Protections?!

Today The Trump Administration has announced that they are rescinding protections to trans youth on the federal level. During President Trumps campaign to be president, he said that he was an ally for LGBT, well if you’re an ally for the LGBT community then why are you taking away these simple rights and protections that a true president enacted to ensure the safety of our youth. You Mr. President, are not a president.


There is so much that I could so here that is political but this isn’t about politics, it’s about human rights and the safety of our youth. We need to stand together and let them know that we support them and will protect them since our government no longer wants to protect them for obvious reasons. It is in my personal opinion that the Trump Administration and the Republicans are transphobic.

I was told that I needed to give Mr. Trump a chance when he made it into office. Well you know what I have given him enough chances. I will no longer give him another chance. All he is doing a destroying our country, our allies, our friends, and neighbors. We must stand together and let the arrogant businessman know we won’t tolerate his nonsense.

I am officially stating that Mr. Trump is #NotMyPresident and never will be. People like him and VP Pence need to learn that everyone were created equal and deserve to be treated equal no matter how they identify, what their orientation is, how wealthy or poor they are. We are human beings.
