Last night was the Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth meeting at the DPH. It was a great meeting where Grace Sterling Stowell was chosen to be vice Chair of the commission. She might be the highest-ranking trans-woman in any state government! (please correct me if I’m wrong) It is amazing to have someone so committed to social justice be at a top post.
The commission also planed to expand it’s mission for youth who aren’t in schools (homeless youth, youth who have dropped out ect.)
There was also a sighting of the infamous Amy Contrada. She is the writer behind the hateful massresistance blog. I moved to the back of the room when I realized who she was to finally get a picture.
A.C.“ don’t you want to sit next to me”
T. “no I want to take your picture”
She put her note pad over her face and told me that I could not take her picture. I pointed out that it was a ‘public’ meeting and I can and will! She went out into the hallway and cried to the State Police officers. The officers are out there to protect the commissioners from people like her and the repressed homosexual Brian Comenker. They backed me up and told her that I had every right to take any pictures I wanted. *as Brian Camenker took pictures of me*
She refused to come back into the meeting and had a follower grab her stuff.
She is willing to endanger the lives of queer youth and trans folks by outing them with photos on her nasty blog, but she won’t have her own picture taken. She is a shameful FUCKING BEAST.
