“To provide an opportunity for networking and outreach by the many businesses, services and organizations that openly welcome LGBT people their friends and families.”

First they came for the Communists,
and I didn’t speak up, because I wasn’t a Communist.

Then they came for the Socialists,
and I did not speak out, because I wasn’t a Socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn’t speak up, because I wasn’t a Jew.

Then they came for me,

and by that time,
there was no one left to speak up for me.
