Group clarifies mission
As a member of QueerToday and participant in the demonstration, I am pleased to see media coverage ("Anti-gay conference draws fire," Aug. 16). However, the Herald's interpretation of the event, and QueerToday, is inaccurate.
QueerToday is an organization founded to advocate for the equality of all LGBT people, specifically queer youth, an often overlooked segment. Instead of speaking with our organization, the Herald quoted a direct of the Freedom to Marry Coalition, who has nothing to do with our group and was not even at our demonstration. Nor were there any Herald reporters present.
Focus on the Family's "Love Won Out" is a direct attack on queer youth, designed to suppress their voices and rights.
