Remember Them

As the Puerto Rican legal system comes under new scrutiny with the arrest of a brutal (alleged) murderer of a gay man, I noticed a series of short videos made by gay celebs about remembering antigay murder victims.

Gay American Heroes, although rather cluttered and amateurish in its layout, is nonetheless sincere in its intent. Says founder Scott Hall:

“It’s time to show the world our HEROES… because our family and friends are being stolen from us because of hate and those who teach it.

We should not, and will not, live in fear. We will face the ongoing violence against Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender people head on and fight those who want to enslave us in their beliefs.

So, until we are given the same rights, freedoms, and protections as every other American, we will be united in this fight for respect, dignity, and protections under the law. We will win this fight through awareness, education, and perseverance for the good of all humanity.

And with totally gorgeous out gay actor/singer Chris Salvatore as one of their spokespeople, it'll hopefully get some attention.

Enjoy Chris Salvatore's other videos HERE.
