Last month, I headed to Detroit to attend LGBT Netroots Connect and Netroots Nation, the country's largest gathering of progressive leaders and activists.

For me, a highlight of the conference was this electric speech from progressive consulting guru (and my friend) Christopher Massicotte. In just five minutes, Chris managed to tell the history of LGBT political activism, talk about the work we have yet to accomplish, and tell some of his own personal story to boot.

The convention hall ate it up, and you will too. Watch!
