Announcing Queer Pioneer Week

Today, is National Coming Out Day.

No, I am not coming out.

However, I want to announce what will be happening here at Approaching Justice. Starting tomorrow, and going through next Friday, Approaching Justice will have an array of posts about gender, gay rights, and homosexuality.

I am calling it Queer Pioneer Week.

A year ago today, I spoke as a candidate for office to the National Coming Out Day gathering at the United Church of Christ in Casper, WY. Much of what you will read at Approaching Justice over the next week will reflect the themes I shared that night.

Tomorrow, I will be starting things off with a post about Matthew Shepard to mark the 15th anniversary of his death.

I hope you will join me. Feel free to let me know if you would like to contribute a guest post for Queer Pioneer Week.

Check out all the posts from Queer Pioneer Week.

    Well done, Chris. I look forward to the series. I can’t imagine how hard it would be to try to pull this off in Wyoming; though I suppose it has its good side as much as my native Montana does. I’ll spread the word and see if any MT friends are interested in contributing.

      Yeah, I only got 24 percent of the vote..and now reside in Las Vegas for a variety of reasons.

      Anything dealing with the concept of “queer” is welcome.
