Bil Browning scooped me on reporting to projectors about incoming Democratic House Leader Darryl Rouson's recent support for marriage equality. The last 2 days I've been consumed with 15 hour days working with other advocates to begin to phase one to address the emergency shelter housing crisis for our transgender brothers and sisters in the Greater Fort Lauderdale area and fighting homophobes who serve on the Broward County School Board Diversity Committee. Stayed tuned for updates on these issues.

This past weekend at the Florida Democratic Party's Jefferson-Jackson weekend, I had a chance to sit down with Rouson who several years ago was part of the team of legislators that I worked with to rally support before the Florida Parole Commission to get Betsie Gallardo released from prison to die at home with her family.
