    That's good news.

    Florida is not the total hotbed of Republican extremism that it's often portrayed to be, as we saw with the results of the 2010 races.
    The Repubs won the Senate and Governor's races last month, but by much more narrow margins than should've been the case in such a Republican year with much heavier Republican turnout than Democratic turnout.

    When you look at the report carefully it is even more amazing. Florida ranks 4th in the nation in percentage of people with increased GLBT rights. Equality Florida does amazing work with the Gay Straight Alliances all over the state in the public schools.

    for more info

    this is me writing for EQ Florida Blog on some amazing work with GLBT youth

    Read the comment at the bottom of this article.. it is dead on.. this 'report' is a self serving twisted report of self glorification.. Equality Florida is run by ONE lesbian of color that thinks her shit doesnt stink.. and she will use EQFL to undermine any other organization 's efforts that doesn't have her name attached to it or do shit HER way..

    I speak from serious amounts of direct engagement with this organization..
