In the 1991 publication, Fear of a Queer Planet, it states: “There have been major branches of social theory in which the connection between sexuality and politics was an important or even paradigmatic concern.”

Well…I don’t know what the heck that means exactly, but LGBTQ communities were visible, loud, and proud “models” and “archetypes” at the Peoples Climate Change March that was held on Sunday, September 21st in New York City.

Part of an estimated 400,000-plus gathering of concerned citizens, together, some strolled while others sashayed across ethnic, cultural, race, class and identity lines, with one common interest—the healthy, sustainable and continued growth of our planet. Yay, us!

Knowledge and the ability to set it into action, underpinned by goodwill, love and justice will either set you free or implode your brain. On this powerfully moving day, a bit of each occurred.
