Other groups need allies, too

The recent announcement that OneAmerica, an immigrants' rights group, has endorsed marriage equality is evidence of the increasing realization of the justice of our struggle.

But it should signify more to LGBT folks. Too often we have not joined in the fights by other marginalized groups to secure greater equality, with a selfish 'it doesn't concern me' attitude. Just as we want non-Gay allies, other groups need support from us to achieve their just goals.

'Each hand washes the other,' my wise mother used to say. I hope LGBT people become even more involved in campaigns by groups promoting racial, gender, and disability equality, and to legalize the status of our resident neighbors.
