Easter Parade also place for Peaceful Protest LGBT Equal Rights

Easter Parade also place for Peaceful Protest LGBT Equal Rights

Dear Blog Readers:  I am straight but I have been gay bashed.  The hate and discrimination has to stop.

Connecting Rainbows and Queer Rising
plan a joint demonstration for
LGBT Civil Rights at the
2011 Easter Parade in New York City

April 19, 2011 -- New York, NY – On April 24, LGBT activists from two different groups will walk within the Fifth Avenue Easter Parade in New York City in memory of Americans, whose lives have been lost as a result of prejudice and hate against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people.

In the last year, we have witnessed a spree of hate crimes against LGBT Americans, including, tragically, a very public spike in LGBT teen suicides.  This unnecessary loss of life will continue as long as our culture encourages homophobia and transphobia.

Activists picked Easter Sunday to increase their visibility in front of the Catholic Church. Last month, Archbishop Timothy Dolan, other Bishops, and other Catholics of New York State traveled to Albany to lobby state leaders on March 8th and 9th to ''oppose efforts to redefine marriage.''

See : and

It should come as no surprise, but the Pope recently said that no one has an absolute right to be married.

See : 

Enacting more laws or doctrines that discriminate will only contribute to a culture of hate and violence, which, sadly, will only promote hate crimes – and the continued loss of life.

“The Catholic Church says that it places value and worth on life.  Meanwhile, some of the Catholic Church’s attitudes feed into a culture and hate and violence against LGBT people,” said Louis Flores, a gay man living in New York City.  “This is wrong, and we are organizing to show the Catholic Church that the lives of LGBT people matter.  We are each somebody, and we each deserve respect, dignity, and equality.”

"As a former Catholic Eucharistic Minister, I distributed the body and blood of Jesus to my faithful and believing brothers and sisters in Christ,” said Rich Murray, an LGBT activist living in New York City.  “It would be a miracle if this bigoted hierarchy of men in dresses and Prada continues to treat me and millions of other human beings as less than equal under the laws of the state and, allegedly, in the eyes of God.  Some day, I pray, the Catholic sisterhood and brotherhood in America - 74% of whom support the recognition of same-sex families - will express the true meaning of Christianity loud enough within their appropriate circles to effect a change that ultimately will save lives. It's a sacrament.  My marriage."

"It is good to see members of the LGBT community stand up to the prejudice and hatred of the Catholic Church.  The Church's hatred of members of the LGBT community and their opposition to a women's right to choose must be confronted where ever possible. The blood of LGBT people victimized by violence belongs on the door steps of St. Patrick's Cathedral," said Allen Roskoff, an LGBT activist and the President of the Jim Owles Liberal Democratic Club.

About LGBT Civil Rights :
Marriage is a vehicle that society uses to distribute rights, benefits, and equality. One way for LGBT Americans to access equal rights would be to be allowed to legally marry.  Another way, which would work concurrently, would be to outlaw discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity by amending the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

About Connecting Rainbows :
Connecting Rainbows is a group of activists that are organizing civil rights walks in America. The group’s mission is to create a mass movement, demanding full civil rights for LGBT Americans.  Connecting Rainbows uses the power of a social media platform, where activists may create online profiles, meet other activists, plan events, join groups, blog, and participate in online forums.

About Queer Rising :
Queer Rising is a grassroots organization created to demand full equality for all queer people through nonviolent direct action.  Formed in late 2009 by people tired of watching LGBTQ rights put on the back burner or given no attention at all, Queer Rising vows to continue to pressure legislators and the public until all queer people are equal.  Find us Facebook, Twitter, or visit us at .

Harry Greenberg’s Tree Gift from HOWL Tree Flowering!

Harry’s Ping Pong Table Tompkins

Cherry Grove Tompkins Back Drop St. Brigids in Blue Restoration

Thank this hard working gardener.   She makes a difference and helped plant our Cherry Grove.

Stefano Giovanni Coney Island Sad Haunting Coney

I want to thank Stefano for sharing this photo with me so I could share it with you.

Many people that call them self artist or photographer do the same work over and over -- like having the same conversation.  He is work is not like that at all but he doesn’t update his website and funny but I don’t update my artist’s website anymore either.  This photo leaped out at me.  If you look up at the top of this blog -- my very first blog than you will understand why.

I am face book friends with this dynamic photographer and his  Coney Island series that remind me of a Hopper painting -- some how lonely and stark.  (I was suppose to see the Hopper exhibit at The Whitney today, the very last day when my friend....I always show you a picture of us visiting museums but I am not sure I am going to make it uptown.  Still feel so tired from being sick for weeks.)

If you tool around Stefano Giovannini’s  website you can find photos giving us visuals of a Protest of China’s treatment of Tibet and the United Nation’s indifference.

Powerful work....from the facebook photos of Coney Island to his website.

Suzannah B. Troy Recovering from Bloomberg Corruption Flu -- Take a Yoga Class NYC is the City of Yoga

2nd blog post from IPad 2 with blogger App.   I really felt like I was dying and I still have a lot of congestion and this cough but major spiritual uplift tonight!
I took an hour Yoga class which is way more challenging than a much longer gentle class I usual take and it was very challenging but cured me!  Despite the overwhelming Bloomberg corruption in your face and I am talking street level this class just massaged my heart and soul.

At one point I curled into child's pose and my shirt which says "yoga is my bailout" was wet with sweat -- my teacher came over and did gentle compressions on my spine and I felt true compassion as well as the wonderful physical sensation of my spine lengthening.   For weeks I haven't been able to breathe and tonight I can fully.  Still a little congestion but I feel so much better.  I did a head stand, my first in a while.  

I always did the most macho sports and had a lot of muscle.  I have lost so much but I see people doing yoga with beautiful muscles.  Muscles in NYC are urban jewelry.  I want beautiful yoga muscles in my fifties!!!!

Than had delicious food at the Love Shack!  Everything made with love and very healthy!

Thanks, love and big hugs to everyone that reads my blogs, watches my tubes and sends me positive energy!

I remember the morning after Sept. 11, the stand was open and there was a long line to buy the newspaper, single file and long....very sad...It is like Mike Bloomberg his socialite city planner Amanda the People’s Burden, NYU the evil empire that mega dormed the east Village to death and Cooper Union, NYU jr. want ethnic cleansing -- zero compassion and no sense of humanity..
