Presidential Medal of Freedom for 15 Brave Young Women

In 1963, segregation was a horror alive and well in the south. The fifteen children participated in a peaceful march of over 200 people to a movie theater where they attempted to purchase tickets at the theater’s white entrance. It was a defiant, peaceful act against segregation. The young women were imprisoned after the march in an abandoned stockade located in the backwoods of Leesburg, Georgia. The large holding cell had only a single, broken showerhead, and a toilet that didn’t work.

Honoring these fifteen women with the Presidential Medal of Freedom will send a powerful message about our nation's fight for equality and justice: it was everyday people taking a stand that created a movement for change. It will bring awareness to a new generation, and provide insight to the struggles these young women had to endure in order to receive the basic privileges we often take for granted today.

Lift the blood donation ban on gay and bisexual U.S. citizens

For a long history, there has been a blood donation ban on gay and bisexual men. Recently, the FDA has changed the law indicating the a gay man must remain abstinent and not engage in any sexual intercourse with other men for one year. This revision is a mockery of the LGBT community and it still promotes the ideology that being gay is transmittable through a simple blood transfusion. Both the law and revision are absurd and only inhibits the amount of blood acquired for necessary operations. In light of the massacre in Florida, where over 100 gay U.S. citizens were either brutally killed or injured, many people in the community want to step and and donate to their friends and family. However with this regulation, they may be forbidden to do so.

Senator Lee Bright: meet transgender South Carolinians

My name is Blair Durkee and I'm a South Carolinian trans woman, born and raised in Greenville, earning my graduate degree in Computer Science from Clemson University. I am one of many transgender Americans who is harmfully targeted by anti-LGBT legislation like the discriminatory S. 1203.
