Age of Consent

By which I mean the Bronski Beat album. I acquired it in 1985. I was stunned to see, on the inner sleeve, data and statistics on laws regarding homosexual activity, country to country and state to state. In 1985, people hoped to legislate homosexual activity out of existence.

This week, in 2010, 'Don't Ask Don't Tell' bit the dust. Honestly, I nearly wept. It is a simple and basic thing to permit individuals to be who they are. It lessened us all to have a country in which DADT held sway.
