The time is now to end prejudice and discrimination against sexuality minorities worldwide!
Melanie Nathan is an activist for equality and a human rights advocate who writes and speaks about ending prejudice and discrimination against sexuality minorities, LGBTQI people in the USA and worldwide.
In addition to reporting related news and stories, OBLOGDEE serves as a platform for Nathan and her guests to highlight their work in a world where gay, lesbian, transgender, queer, intersex, and gender-free people are the subjects of inequality persecution and discrimination.
Melanie is executive director at African Human Rights Coalition – www.africanhrc.org
Wow!!! Mel, you’re a white tornado. I am honored to know you and am anxious to be of service in the future.
Not sure if you’ve noticed yet, but wordpress has removed Gay, Lesbian and Homosexuality from their topic search. If you go to the wordpress reader (http://wordpress.com/#!/read/) and either click on any of those words or put them into the topic search, you get a message that says:
Nothing to read.
Find your friends, browse our recommended blogs, or have a look at Freshly Pressed.
In fact, if any of those words are used as a tag, you no longer appear in the wordpress-reader. As you have a high profile… I thought maybe you could do something?
wow that is cause for serious alarm. I will look into it and certainly write something about it if thats the case. Thanks for the alert!!!
I’ve contacted them, they insist it’s a technical issue that will be fixed. I just find it very alarming that the technical issue coincidently involves the words gay, lebsian, transexual and homosexuality. here’s their response:
interesting – i had a hard time getting onto the link you gave me, I will keep an eye on it too…. also will complain
Seems he had a good explanation – and they know what problem is and they will fix same today BUT interesting that they closed the comment thread!!! they are clearly scared of taking any heat – of prompting too much accusation and flak re a possible bias
Hi there Melanie – amazing work you do! Your article titled “South African National Protests by Gay Rights Activists Sheds Light on ANC Weakness” is profound, and sheds light on a dark area of politics.
My name is Nicholas Gregory, and I am in the process of founding the first GBLTI Party of South Africa – politics WITHOUT the politics. The imagery on your blog is fantastic, and I’d love to know if I can use some of the images on our website (busy being constructed).
You can visit http://www.facebook.com/glbtpartysa to have a further look at our aims and objectives.
Have a fantastic week further,
Thanks Nic for making contact and for the kind words. I would be more than happy for you to make use of whatever material you want. I just need to be sure that the images you use are permitted by whomever gave the original permission in case copyrights apply. So please check with me per image and I will confirm same for your protection. Here is my private e-mail I would love to see your site and help in any way that I can. Best of luck…. mel.
Looking forward to hearing more… goodluck
