Creating Change 2016 Articles in Review and Thanks

Following Articles were written this past week by Melanie Nathan covering the Anti-Israel and anti-Semitic events that occurred at Creating Change 2016. #CC16 – Followed by other links to excellent articles by others.

“#CC16 Coverage -I want to thank all those who donated to O-BLOG-DEE by subscribing, this past week, unsolicited, some of whom mentioned gratitude for the Creating Change coverage. Thank you for seeing the value and recognizing the hard work. The past week was a tough one for many. It is hard to fend off so much misinformation, injustice and abject hate, while trying to honor intersecting ideals. I realized that when I stood up for what I believe in, there would be bullying and attacks, – I was able to withstand it and will continue to push back against the shutting down of dialogue. I am not afraid of the attacks and will not be intimidated by anyone. I am not afraid to expose those who I believe fail our community by placing outside agendas ahead of our unified quest for global LGBTQI equality.  I am not afraid to go after the opportunists, with alternate agendas, who sneak in on the backs of our community’s issues. Thanks to all who made contact and provided information, comradeship and emotional support too – it means a lot to me.”  Melanie Nathan.   SUBSCRIBE
