The Task Force Action Fund is on the ground in Maine
And we're getting our march on this weekend in D.C.

We did it! The U.S. Census Bureau will count married same-sex couples in the 2010 census. But this is just the beginning: We're working to get the census to count all lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.

We salute Elizabeth "Liebe" Gadinsky, a tremendous volunteer who has worked on the Miami Recognition Dinner for several years, currently serving as the event co-chair. Liebe is a top volunteer fundraiser and straight ally committed to advancing freedom, justice and equality for LGBT people. She has devoted countless hours supporting the work of the Task Force and local LGBT organizations in Miami. Thank you, Liebe, for making a difference!

22 Years Ago: October 1987
This weekend, the Task Force will join LGBT activists from around the country for the National Equality March. Twenty-two years ago this month, we played a highly visible role in the National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights. Then-Task Force Media Director Urvashi Vaid served as march media coordinator; the Task Force created and distributed activist resource guides to hundreds of marchers; and we handed out armful upon armful of signs denouncing sodomy laws, which featured the tagline: "Never another jailed for love."
March with us this weekend
