Equality Going All OUT

 I  discovered this video which was produced by All Out in collaboration with friends on 5 continents—from Buenos Aires to Beirut, Kathmandu to Capetown to Tokyo and beyond. Although it was produced in 2010, it relevance still speaks "out loud."  All Out is bringing together people of every identity - lesbian, gay, straight, transgender and all that's between and beyond - to build a world in which everyone can live freely and be embraced for who they are. COP 24/7 supports the equality of all to make decision for themselves and those whom they love. If you are interested in joining the Movement. Go All Out.  Don't forget to support your local community based organizations of your choice! DO IT Today!
