Your LGBTQ Resource Guide to the Treasure Valley
The LGBT community has been a growing culture with more and more acceptance coming from the general community. However, there are still many people in the LGBT community who face discrimination on a daily basis. While rights are being fought for all over the world, many countries and states are still unwilling to grant rights to the community. In order to better the rights and lives of LGBT members, the community must be able to stick together for support of one another. This website is an educational and resource guide that people new and old to the LGBT community can use to learn more and find support.
Add The 4 Words Idaho
(from Add the 4 words Facebook page)
Stand with those people peacefully arrested ensuring the Idaho legislature adds the words “sexual orientation, gender identity” to our human rights law.
TO CAPITOL, STATE and BOISE CITY POLICE from Add the Four Words Idaho demonstrators. We are a PEACEFUL group of people determined to see the legislature vote to pass a bill adding four words, “sexual orientation, gender identity” to Idaho’s fair employment, housing, education & public accommodation law. …
We are determined to remain peaceful, to negotiate and cooperate as much as possible while remaining in place in the Capitol. We feel we have tried every avenue to get the legislature to hear our stories and see the harm being done to good people’s lives. We feel this demonstration is our only remaining avenue to ensure they hear us and finally, after 8 years, stand up and say that cruelty to gay & transgender people is wrong.
Every participant has been trained, most in two-hour non-violent civil disobedience trainings that included role plays. Once arrested, every participant is trained to comply and cooperate fully. Those prepared to be arrested can be identified by their black vests /shirts which read “Add the Four Words Idaho.” We do have legal observers in the area and they too are willing to cooperate as necessary to allow law enforcement to do their jobs.
Again, we are determined to be silent, peaceful, respectful and focused on why we are here. The hand-over-moth stance the demonstrators use is intended to represent how we have been silenced by the legislature’s failure to even hold a public hearing on the add the words bill so that they would hear the stories of gay, transgender people and Idaho citizens who live in fear or have faced beatings, the despair and suicides of their children or their friends, loss of jobs, apartments, denial of service by restaurants and businesses.
