Attend "Voices of Honor" in Blacksburg on Wednesday, Help Us Lobby Sen. Webb Friday

My good friend Terry McGuire from the Human Rights Campaign has put together an event called "Voices of Honor" in Blacksburg this week to help rally the LGBT community in southwestern Virginia to lobby Sen. Jim Webb for his support in repealing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell".

Terry writes, "Voices of Honor ( is a national tour aimed at generating grassroots pressure in support of the repeal of 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' (DADT), and I'm really excited to help bring a stop to Blacksburg."

The event will feature a screening of the award winning short documentary "Ask Not" (, as well as a Q&A panel with veterans from the film and the area. Terry has been working for over a month to secure support for repeal from US Senator Jim Webb, who sits on the powerful Senate Armed Services Committee. I hope you'll join us in participating in this historic movement to repeal this discriminatory law.

I have seen "Ask Not" and I can tell you it is very moving film and something everyone who cares about equality should see.

I'm taking this opportunity to once again remind my readers about the upcoming lobbying meeting on Friday with Sen. Webb's staff. The meeting will be held on Friday, April 30 from 10:00am - 11:00am, at 3140 Chaparral Drive Bldg C, ste 101, in Roanoke. Please e-mail me at or respond via the Roanoke Equality event page.
