For the past year Jennifer Booker has been sharing her transitioning from CIS male to female. The audience is learning about the effects of hormones and the effects of people’s responses on her psyche and her physical body. We are being enlightened in a manner never before witnessed. It is awe inspiring, she is our poster ‘child’ woman. She is beautiful, intelligent and brave.
Come October 21st to hear Jennifer along with many other readers share their heart felt stories, poetry, rants, and more.
I’m a card carrying member of the American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania; may I encourage you to do the same. This is the email they sent me recently.
Dear Susana,I have been blessed to be a part of some pretty historic cases, whether it’s intelligent design creationism, Hazleton’s immigration fiasco, or, most recently, knocking out voter ID. But our marriage case on behalf of 25 Pennsylvanians holds a special place for me.
We won the freedom to marry for ALL Pennsylvanians!
I was at the Pittsburgh celebration on the night of the decision with several of our clients and their children when the magnitude of what we had achieved began to hit home. People I didn’t know were hugging me, wetting my suit with their tears as they thanked me for transforming their lives. I don’t ever recall seeing so much unabashed joy, open affection, and excitement created by one of our victories.
All ACLU cases involve vital rights, but it hit me just how life-defining this case is for so many people. It is everyday existence. This decision affirms people for who they are and establishes gay men and lesbians as equal citizens. Those who fall in love with a person of the same-sex now have the same rights.
Who would have thought that in less than a year we would make Pennsylvania number 19 for freedom-to-marry states? It’s amazing and just plain beautiful!
The ACLU of Pennsylvania could not have achieved this win, or any of our other victories, without the help of our ACLU members like you. Your support provides the funds needed to address important issues such as this one.
