I’ve never been much of a fan of California State Senator Mark Leno (D-San Francisco). His rhetoric on gay issues has been over-the-top and his attitudes toward Republicans lacks the respect he demands social conservatives extend to gay people.
But, you gotta give credit where it’s due. And unlike the better part of the gay leadership across the nation and in the Golden State, this openly gay state legislator has endorsed the San Franciso Rally for Iranian democracy that Michael Petrelis is organizing today in San Francisco. It would be nice if more left-wing Democrats followed suit. This is an issue which should not only unite the nation, but also the gay community.
it seems the leftist bloggers have been far ahead of the gay leadership in standing up for other brothers and sisters in Iran.
If you can make it, that rally is just a few hours away, today at 5 PM in Harvey Milk Plaza.
