ezs note:  The two may seem unrelated, but John L. Lotter, one of the unsuccessful petitioners in the case, was convicted of killing Brandon Teena, a transgender male. You can see the true story reenactment in Boys Don't Cry. (with Peter Sarsgaard as John Lotter)

From sea to shining sea... and north to the Arctic!

In Canada, things are generally better for LGBT folks than here than in the US.  (In states such as South Carolina, Mississippi, and Alabama, they're way better.)   But there are irksome spots.  What Canadian LGBTs want to do is to amend their constitution.

Jillian Page, who writes for the Montreal Gazette, has graciously allowed me to put in Canadian Members of Parliament along with US House of Representatives.

But now it's your turn!  Whatever side of the line you are on, it's your responsibility to let these people know that you expect respect, and it should be written into the constitution.
