Fairfax County Public Schools (VA) Pride picnic, speakers urge conventional partisan activism

Here is some footage from the speakers at the Fairfax County Public Schools Pride picnic today at Nottoway Park in Vienna, just north of I66.

There was a Virginia state senator (himself gay), a member of the House of Delegates (Martin D. Sickles), and a transgender candidate, as well as discussion of local school board races  There were no apologies about partisanship or asking for door-to-door-activism as well as money — something that many people find objectionable in these days about increased fears about home security and even home invasions.  it isn’t like it used to be.  “Solidarity” has gotten much harder, as the health care debate shows.

I used to work as a substitute teacher at FCPS and APS 2004-2007 and there were issues, as I have described before, such as here.
