Richard and I had to vote in separate cities this year, so I'm so happy that @kristawhitney could come with me. The matching rainbows were a happy coincidence. Krista has been with me every step of the "coming out" journey and today, felt like the most important vote I've ever had to make. Today, I voted for all the LGTBQ people who came before me. The ones who fought (and died) for the things I just take for granted for now. The right to marry, to work, for healthcare, to adopt (if we wanted to, calm down.) There are lots of issues I wish this election could have been about, but Kenney and his candidates' comments and actions made it about me and my family. So I voted to honour those before me. I voted to protect those yet to come. And I voted for an Alberta that brings us all together. #abvote #ableg
A few weeks ago, I was thinking of fun ways to encourage people to vote and I thought about Drag performers. Who doesn't love Drag Performers?! So @emmastevens_ and I worked with @vanta_blaque and @greasejones and came up with #DragOutTheVote, and it all came together today. It was honestly so cool. It's amazing what can happen with a few messages. So now I put the challenge out to you. If this election is as important to you as it is to me, organize something fun for your friends and family and vote together. Maybe it's a movie and voting, or wine and vote. Or maybe you all take your dogs for a walk or provide a baby-sitting sorta sharing circle so you and other parents can vote together. The LGTBQ community will need every vote we can get. I hope we have yours.
Today, an idea I had last year turned into @democracydonuts! Thanks to @emmastevens_, @jeremyfokkens and @jasonkrell and everyone that donated more than $2,700, we were able to feed 100 voters @hoopladonuts today and we will be doing the same every day until Saturday! We'll be at the Mara Loop Community Centre tomorrow night starting at 6:00pm.
Hi. Can you please vote on April 16th? Today, I heard a clip of UCP candidate Mark Smith comparing gay people to pedophiles.Even if you don't follow politics or care about politics, maybe you could just go to the polls, vote for the NDP and say to the UCP candidate in your riding "That's for calling Mike a pedophile." ♥️🏳️🌈
If you love and support LGTBQ rights, please vote on April 16th. Queer kids matter. No ifs ands or buts.
