First Civil Disobedience Action for LGBTQI Equality Here in New York
Dear Orlando Health,
I've been quite busy this week coordinating the start of a new group here in New York City fighting for LGBTQI equality through direct actions. We launched our first action last night - a symbolic party crashing. Here is a video capturing the event.
I share this with you for two reasons:
1. I took my normal time spreading the message about the bigotry you support at Orlando Health and redirected it to equality seeking behavior in my own back yard.
2. You can look forward to a future of direct action to continue to press you to change and embrace the calls to action in the well reasoned proposal.
Whenever you are ready to change your disgusting bigotry - your team members and patients are waiting - but if you continue to refuse - we will have no choice but to resort to direct action and the shame you have received to date will be nothing compared to the light that will be shone upon your organization in the future.
Thank you for reading (as you always do) - and happy holidays.
Alan L. Bounville
