    Record number of LGBT participants descend on Charlotte for Democratic Convention

    "The Democratic National Convention gets underway in Charlotte, N.C, this week, and will be attended by at least 534 official LGBT participants, according to National Stonewall Democrats, a marked increase in LGBT participation from four years ago in Denver where just over 350 LGBT participants were identified."

    http://www.lgbtqnation.com/2012/09/record-number-of-lgbt-participants-descend-on-charlotte-for-democratic-convention/


    Total number of participants at the 2012 Democratic National Convention: 534

    LGBT Delegates: 486 (116.27% of goal; 8.15% of the 5963 total delegates expected in Charlotte.)
    LGBT Alternates: 23
    LGBT Committee Members: 20
    LGBT Pages: 5

    Jurisdictions that met or exceeded goal: 38
    Jurisdictions that missed their goal: 15
    Jurisdictions that met or exceeded their 2008 LGBT participation: 44
    Transgender participants: 11 (7 delegates, 3 committee members, 1 alternate)

    For the first time, all 50 states set numerical goals for LGBT delegates.
    For the first time, there will be at least one LGBT delegate from every state
    Three states — Mississippi, Arkansas, Alaska — are sending LGBT delegates for the first time
    The largest LGBT delegation is from California with 76 total LGBT participants
    6 States are sending 1 LGBT delegate (AK, ID, KS, MS, ND, VT)
    “An increase in the number of LGBT delegates is only the tip of the iceberg,” said Boylan. “By ensuring an open and inclusive delegate selection process, state Democratic Party organizations are witnessing an increase in LGBT involvement in Democratic campaigns, as well as Democratic organizing and fundraising activities.”

    “As the Party has expanded its outreach to the LGBT community, the community has expanded its involvement in the Party. We are seeing better working relationships with elected officials and more interest in pro-equality legislation at all levels of government,” added Boylan.

    And they will be welcome, unlike the gay 'roaches for Raid' who attended the RNC and were rewarded with one of the most anti-gay GOP platforms ever.

    Good to hear. Your party is a scumbag group of liars.

    Will the DNC pay employees lie such as saying Romney is responsible for cancer deaths? How about the lies in this Obama ad, and not from the PAC:
    Obama ad against Romney regarding GST Steel - Truth shows the exact opposite of Team Obama intent
    http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/2385839

    Talk about Bain because you can't discuss Obama's record. You want to hide from very simple questions such as dealing with Obama's desire for more stimulus for jobs based on the previous stimulus:

    How many jobs were created?

    How about the shovel-ready jobs that were not shovel-ready?

    How many stimulus dollars were spent per job?

    How many dollars went to cronys not leading to jobs?

    How many dollars went overseas?

    Why would any thinking person expect the same plan to lead to different results?

    Why does this thread represent the mindless phrases parroted?

    When has so much blind ideology trumped basic brain-power and common sense?

    Oh MRS Obama may say her husband is humble, but lets look at what she cost you; there is nothing humble about that. Spending 70 pounds for Fish and chips in an up market shop while in England; there nothing humble about that girl.

    I was taught to be ressession proof I still own 2 homes. I have a 6 figure income. You dope. It's the econonmy as a whole I was speaking.icon_idea.gif

    Here are more lies she said about her husband creating these great jobs for American's.

    The unfortunate reality is that most of the jobs created under President Barack Obama’s administration pay low wages. About three-fifths of the jobs created during the economic recovery are low-wage, while most of the jobs lost during the recession paid middle-wages, according to a recent study from the National Employment Law Project. More than 40 percent of the jobs created during the economic recovery have been in low-paying sectors like retail, food and employment services.

    When do the democrats show the live abortion on TV at the convention? That should get them a few extra votes from some group come election time. It seems they are all for women to kill unborn children. They should really promote it more other than walking around in vagina costumes and handing out free condums. You own abortion democrats. Be proud and support it...."FORWARD"

    Totally ignorant! As most people already understand, pro-choice does NOT mean pro-abortion.
