What I forgot to say: Thanks, Georgina!

I could kick myself (again)….

When I made my last post about Georgina Beyer, I was busy getting ready for my partner’s work function at our home. That’s no excuse for leaving out what I meant to say, but didn’t:

Thank you,
Georgina, for being you and standing up to all those—including within the Labour caucus—who would have preferred that you just shut up. You stood up for your issues, something that too many queers won’t do. You’re a hero if for no other reason than that.

Best of all, in my opinion, is that
Georgina wouldn’t just shut up and go away. How many people—gay, straight or simply progressive—can say the same?
