The Pennsylvania Equality Project

None are Equal until All are Equal

What do we stand for?

The Pennsylvania Equality Project stands for the same goals that Marriage Equality for Pennsylvania once fought. Now that marriage equality is the law in Pennsylvania, PEP realizes that we have more vital work to finish. Thus, we are fighting for these reasons:
1. We want an end to legal discrimination against the LGBT community for all public accommodations, including housing, employment, lodging, and all business entities that serve the general public within the Commonwealth.

2. We want to end bigotry and racism for all minority people in Pennsylvania.

3. We want to engage in dialog with local school boards across Pennsylvania to implement programs that support an end to bullying. No student should suffer at the hands of a bully in school. All students deserve a free and appropriate public education that is void of tormenting and taunting.

4. We want to end the use of conversion or "reparative" therapy in Pennsylvania. This discredited fraud must be abandoned in Pennsylvania before any more children suffer at the hands of abusers posing as "therapists."

5. We want to include the LGBT community within Pennsylvania's classes protected by existing hate crime legislation. 

6. We will work with other organizations across Pennsylvania that support causes for women, for people of color, and for people who are struggling as a result of poverty.

7. We will raise awareness  about LGBT youth homelessness. Far too many children are removed from their homes solely for being lesbian, gay, bisexual, and/or transgender. -- David

Big Band Holidays

The spirit of the winter holiday season has always been best captured by the music that this joyous time inspires. The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis and special guest vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant celebrate “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year” with Big Band Holidays, a jazzy celebration now in its fourth year. The JLCO will explore the canon of holiday standards with signature arrangements of Yuletide favorites, with Sherman Irby’s clear sense of swing, Victor Goines’ New Orleans-flavored nuances, Chris Crenshaw’s deeply soulful and complex church-rooted grooves, and many more. Augmenting this special event is 2010 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Vocal Competition winner and Mack Avenue recording artist Cécile McLorin Salvant, who is one of the most commanding new voices in jazz. Big Band Holidays kicks off the season with messages of peace and good cheer. We have more amazing music on our Weekends Online page.
