Vote NO on Amendments 6 & 8

Florida faces many important decisions in the upcoming election- but there are some really important items that will be on your ballot you may have not heard about. 

This year there will be 11 proposed constitutional amendments on the ballot- all of which were put there by the Florida legislature (*que the alarm bells*). Two of those amendments- 6 & 8- have real consequences for Florida's LGBT community. That's why Equality Florida is saying vote NO on Amendments 6 & 8 this November.

Greetings from DC

I'm in DC today for an LGBT policy briefing and a BBQ at Vice President Biden's residence. Today I am representing Florida and have had the opportunity to share some of the great work we are doing here with other statewide LGBT advocacy groups in other states. We also had the opportunity to hear from various departments about the work being done under President Obamas administration on behalf of LGBT people.

Health Disparities Among LGBT Populations: Finding Out What We Don't Know

[EQFL NOTE: This past May, Brian Winfield delivered a presentation on LGBT Health Disparities during the Florida Diversity Council's inaugural Health Diversity Summit. He was subsequently asked to re-craft the presentation into an article for publication. Below is the article appearing in the current issue of Diverse Voices, Moffitt Cancer Center's diversity newsletter.
