The Stonewall Democratic Club of Southern Nevada kept its tradition of throwing great parties with purpose this weekend as it kicked off “ELECT EQUALITY” with our very own Congresswoman Dina Titus who is one of the 12 winners of Stonewall's national “Elect Equality” contest.
With over 100 in attendance and DJ AXIS providing music, the home of Clark County Democratic Party Chairwoman Roberta Lange and her husband Candidate for Regent Ken Lange was packed to the rafters with enthusiastic pro-Equality Democrats! After being introduced by openly Gay Judicial candidate and Stonewall member Kristine Kuzemka we were treated to a great speech from Congresswoman Titus reaffirming her commitment to Equality and Diversity!
We also proudly announced the joint effort of Stonewall and the Clark County Democratic Party to renovate the Gay and Lesbian Center of Southern Nevada's library in honor of State Senator David Parks. The Senator is the openly Gay representative who shepherded our Domestic Partnership bill into law over the veto of the Republican Governor. The Senator David Parks Library is a project that will honor President Obama's request that Americans go out into their communities and perform services that affect everyone in a positive way. A grand opening ceremony honoring the Senator will be held on September 15 2010.
“Elect Equality” has already begun with a survey of the registered Domestic Partners in Nevada to gauge what they are looking for in pro-Equality candidates and get them ready to vote and reach out to their friends to do the same. The next steps will be organizing the LGBT community throughout the state and educating them on how important each and everyone of our votes will be in the 2010 election. After that it's Get Out The Vote and on to victory!
Here's a few pictures from the event taken by a dedicated Democratic activist, Marla Turner.
Politically active LGBT single and looking to mingle! Love to to laugh and think. Big on bios especially Political and trashy Hollywood stuff. Love old movies and classic cocktails. I'm very laid back until I want something,at that point anyone in my way gets mowed down. I will be a city councilman in Las Vegas within the next five years. Very conservative total liberal. Hate idiots on the left and right. PC makes me gag (and not in a fun late 70's way). I laugh all the time! I used to be on American Bandstand and had a spotlight dance to some awful QuarterFlash ditty with my partner Nanette Wallinsky, I believe we were the first interracial dance couple on AB, "we're goin' rockin...."!
