As a member of the GLBT community, do you feel as free as other citizens of this country?
“No. We don’t have equal rights. There really is no equality.”
“Yes. I have a lot of the same opportunities, except marriage. But I’m not thinking of that right now.”
“I don’t have as many freedoms. Freedoms are taken away one at a time in this country. Not just in the GLBT community but other communities as well.”
“Yes, pretty much. I live in San Francisco so there’s no more freedom than that, at least for gay people.”
“No, on two accounts. I’m still fighting racism and now I have to fight discrimination against sexual orientation and age.”
