LGBT Fast Friday News 9/14/12

Fast Friday is a weekly feature in which I provide links to news items and other resources of interest to the LGBT community.

Let’s go VIRAL!! I posted the following pic of Herb and the DOMA issue on my Facebook page yesterday … then thought perhaps it’s time to make our voices heard loud and strong on this issue.  I challenge every one of you to hit the SHARE button and post it on every FB and Google+ and Pintrest page you can! (And any other pages for that matter). Stand up for what’s right. DOMA is discriminatory, hurtful and damaging. Are you up for the challenge????  Also, FB users should reposition the pic so your readers can see the last line …
