HomoQuotable – David Mixner

“Let’s not kid ourselves the debate was not good for our President. But
before we start wringing our hands and wishing things were different it
is important to remember one thing.
[snip] Never have we as a community been so close to full equality and never have we been so close to losing it all in this election. No matter how we would want the world to be this morning, it makes no difference. Our lives, our future and our freedom are at stake in this election. Don’t play with it. Don’t be high and mighty about it. Don’t blame someone else about it. As a dear friend always reminds me, ‘It is what it is’.  Just do what the courageous and noble LGBT community have always done in the times of adversity. Fight back. Fight hard. Ignore the odds. Show others how it is done. Most importantly take this nation to a new place in its politics, hearts and values. Let’s get the job done.” – Former Clinton White House adviser David Mixner, writing on his personal blog.
