LETTER TO THE EDITOR: What about those who were out, loud and proud?

(Editor’s note: In her weekly opinion piece on SDGLN’s Commentary page, Contributor Barb Hamp Weicksel wrote about this topic: ”The out, loud and proud myth of the gay community” in which she argues that times have changed for the LGBT movement and that some people now live by example instead of by confrontation. Needless to say, not everyone agrees with her point of view.)

I think there should be further discussion about what Barb Hamp Weicksel thinks, not about Jodie Foster, but how things would be for our movement/community today IF others had not worked to make things change - not just by shouting but by publishing, educating and coming out.
