Good evening Members of Erie County Council

Before I prepared my remarks for this evening, I asked PA Representative Mike Schlossberg what suggestions he had that would give my presentation greater impact. His advice was to share a personal story.

My name is David Moore, and I represent the 26,000 supporters and followers of the Pennsylvania Equality Project. We are an organization dedicated to fighting for full equality and fairness under the law for the LGBTQ community of Pennsy...

For some children and young adults, the promise that on some nebulous day in the future, life will improve, seems empty and unfulfilling. For LGBTQ+ youth, a life without bullying, teasing, abuse, and neglect from peers, birth families, and school officials seems unreal. For LGBTQ+ couples living in same-sex relationships and families in Philadelphia, two different foster agencies have made perfectly clear that homosexuality is contrary to their religious beliefs, and for those...

What will 2018 bring?

Posted by david_m94@hotmail.com on December 31, 2017 at 7:30 PM Comments comments (0)

With the country taking several large steps in the past year toward the right or even far-right side of the spectrum, one might expect my forecast for 2018 to be even gloomier than my forecast for 2017. However, I am not entirely pessimistic. I do believe we have considerable work to do to improve our local communities, and improve our Commonwealth. All civil rights o...

Some Gloom, But No Doom: Reprint

This post was originally on our previous website. It is worthy of reading just to see if I came anywhere close with my prognostications. Check out the predictions for 2018 on my next blog post tonight!

With 2016 coming to an end, it is time for my predictions for the new year. I am not very optimistic about the chances of much civil rights legislation advancing in Pennsylvania or in Washington. In some ways, I think we will lose many of the rights we...

(Doug Jones (D) and Roy Moore (R) competing for the US Senate seat from Alabama)

While most children in northwest Pennsylvania are checking the snowfall to see whether they will be staying home from school tomorrow, I am playing the role of political junkie and checking out the results of the special election in Alabama for the US Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions w...

On Giving Thanks and Gratitude

Posted by david_m94@hotmail.com on November 23, 2017 at 2:55 PM Comments comments (0)

As today is Thanksgiving, it is appropriate to take time to reflect on the good things that have happened throughout the year and in our past, and to prepare for the coming struggles that lie ahead. Our organization has grown tremendously in six short years, and considerable change has come not just to the LGBTQ community but to our nation, and in turn, our world. Thus, I leave these remarks for all to consider.
