Civil Rights. Equality for my family. My Project is to raise money for Equality Florida which is a statewide education and advocacy organization dedicated to eliminating discrimination based on sexual orientation, race, gender and class. Need less of a technical summary? Basically, my civil rights have been taken away that allows me to adopt my son simply because of my sexual orientation. Yep – you read right. Simply because I am gay – the state of Florida has made it illegal for me to adopt. It doesn’t matter that I have been in a great relationship for 20 years or that all the experts have stated that gay parents make great parents or that 3500 foster children are not being allowed to be adopted into safe and stable homes….Any way you see my project and I hope you can help me raise money for this great organization which is making great progress in these efforts.
