I find it incredibly significant that Gov. Brewer of Arizona is contemplating a veto of her own Tea Party-backed anti-gay discrimination law not because of how illegal and immoral it is, but by the negative economic impact it could have on the state. Not only have we shown that boycotts work (remember Coors), but now even the threat of a boycott is enough to start influencing political policy. Stop and consider how little influence the LGBT community had at one time, and see how far we've come, with our allies by our side.
We *can* stand up for what's equal and fair, and we *can* make a difference in the world.
