Open Thread Thursday

Tuesday's blog swarm prompted many of you to suggest that calling one's own representatives personally would be more effective than "lobbying readers to lobby the HRC to lobby the president to lobby Congress about DADT," as one reader put it. I don't disagree, but participated mostly because I was so curious as to how the HRC would react to such an unprecedented push. But I was also reminded how extraordinarily lucky I am to live somewhere where every single one of my elected representatives, at all levels of government, supports virtually every item on the LGBT wish list.* Tell us about your own reps, at any level, and how your interactions with them on LGBT issues have gone. Do you think you've positively affected their positions and decisions?

*That's not to suggest we're completely satisfied with how they go about seeking the changes we are calling for.
