US House 'Snatches Discrimination From the Jaws of Equality'

Rep. Sean Maloney (D- N.Y.) was told to "get back on your side" as he tried to point out that the time to vote on his proposal had come to an end. The proposal, which would have enforced non discrimination on the part of government contractors, was defeated by House Republicans who kept the two minute voting slot open for an extra six minutes to allow extra republicans to vote down the proposal.

In a move that sent House Dems into a state of apoplexy, the leadership on the Republican side shamefully broke the rules to allow hate to win, at least for this round. Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL. district 21) told Mark's List: “A bipartisan majority voted to protect LGBT employees on the House floor today. What happened next was shameful. Speaker Ryan bent the rules and twisted arms to defeat the winning amendment. The conservative majority's leadership grossly abused its power to override the will of the House and the clear will of the American people. But no abuse of the House rules can undermine the progress we have made and will continue to make. I will continue to fight against bigotry in any form and strive for full equality for LGBT Americans.”

Wilton Manors Makes History, Permanently Raises Pride Flag

Under a measure sponsored by Commissioner Justin Flippen with the unanimous support of the members of the city commission, the City of Wilton Manors will become the first city in the nation to permanently raise the Pride Flag on Tuesday, May 24 at 6:15 pm at a ceremony (Jaycee Park along Wilton Drive) right before the city commission meeting.

“Today in Wilton Manors, something historic is going down – or rather something historic is going up,” said Commissioner Justin Flippen.  “Today’s permanent raising of the Pride Flag is about doing something we all should deeply appreciate – making history for the right reasons.” 

Wilton Manors will raise the Pride Flag as the first city in the United States to permanently display the Pride Flag as the foundation to a monument and memorial dedicated to a community – LGBT and our allies – in recognition of the positive social and economic impact the LGBT community has in the city, region, and nation.
