GLBTube #3

This and that….

1. I found this video really inspiring and encouraging. Religious leaders rally with HRC in support of the “Matthew Shepherd Act” and ENDA in Washington D.C. This clip's about thirty-five minutes long.

2. This is a recent episode from an amazing video-blog, “Transgender in New York.” Erin has been chronicling her life and transition in short video clips for just over five months. She talks about having her name changed, work and money issues, shopping, her voice, her family, and her Morman upbringing, and everything else with wit and grace and humility. I think this is such an excellent example of someone from our community reaching OUT. It’s so important for our community to find ways to be honest and upfront about our lives. Erin's made a lot of friends on YouTube. It’s amazing. Check out some of the fascinating response videos Erin has received.

3. This very well produced clip has been floating around the Texas, political blogosphere, so I thought I’d promote it here as well. Kuff and BOR have more details about this appalling attempt at voter suppression.

4. Man! San Francisco politics are really different… This is S.F. mayor Gavin Newsom talking about same-sex marriage live on The Woody Show.

What do you think of these clips? How could the Caucus use YouTube? I’d love to hear some of your ideas.
