The LGBT civil-rights activist organization GetEQUAL held a day of action in Washington, D.C. on Monday. The co-founder and director of GetEQUAL, Robin McGehee, joined with Lt. Dan Choi and other “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” repeal activists at the U.S. Capitol to meet with staff of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to urge action on repeal of DADT during the lame-duck session of Congress. After leaving Reid’s office, the activists went to the gates of the White House, where they began chanting “I am somebody, and I deserve full equality.” Thirteen activists, many of them veterans dismissed from the military under “Don’t Ask,” handcuffed themselves to the White House fence. The park police extricated and arrested them.

    Stupid. These idiots are just trying to raise money. Their little stunts haven’t accomplished anything for the LGBT community. They’ve wasted $700,000 and $500,000 has been for their salaries.

    Nothing about GetEQUAL is authentic. Activists are being paid $90,000 a year for actions most of us do as volunteers. It’s a scam.

    AndrewW: Stop putting partisan politics ahead of the LGBT civil rights movement. They are doing more than all the conservative, DC based LGBT groups combined. Whenever anyone does anything for our rights, there always are self loathing and heterosexist queers who demonize them.
