Hello and Welcome

My name is Chase. Welcome to the Milkmen Project blog. Named after Harvey Milk, the milkmen project is dedicated to expanding equality for LGBT citizens across the United States, as well as across the globe. We live in a time where it may be okay to be gay, but it is far from accepted by mainstream society. We have come a long way from the stonewall riots, but there are many barriers left to overcome before we are no longer second class citizens.

So what should we do? The LGBT community should be doing what other minorities have been doing for years, electing their own to represent them. I created this blog (and podcast eventually) to help LGBT citizens have a voice in their government. There are many areas of the country where the LGBT community is a significant percentage of the voting block. This is where we should start. Areas like NYC, Atlanta, and San Francisco. Why not?

Once again, thanks for reading, and welcome to the blog. Check back again for updates soon.
