Busy days for me – PRIDE! and Soulforce

Ahhh… the life of me. (Life… what life? I don’t see much fun or free-time, lol).

I’ve got a busy day today, as well as for the next week or so. I’m heading over to UNCG this afternoon to man the UNCG PRIDE! information table at the school’s summer orientation’s organization fair. I’ll be doing that until about 4 or so, then I have to come back to pack.

I’m leaving tomorrow morning to head up to New York (not the City, but I’ll be near it and have to travel through it). I’ll be up there for some activist/organizing/media training for an upcoming Soulforce Youth action regarding Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.

It is going to be a busy week and the organizers say that we probably won’t be having much free time. But I’m committed to what I do and I love it, so I don’t see me having a bad time or anything.

I’ve managed to get about four or five folks who have committed to helping out with the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell action. We’ll be doing it in Greensboro (mid-to-late August or ealry September) while about 30 or more other city organizers will be doing it in other locations around the country. According to the Soulforce Youth organizers, more than 1000 LGBT and allied youth are expected to be involved in the action. Although I don’t have time to give out too much detail right now, I am planning on putting up some information on my blog’s Soulforce Youth Action page (right now it just has info on the recent Equality Ride).

If you feel strongly that the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy is wrong, misguided, government-sanctioned discrimination, then I strongly urge you to email me at matt ‘at’ matthillnc ‘dot’ com to get more info on how you might be able to help out in the Greensboro area.

Even though I’ll be out of town, I’m hoping I’ll be able to find time to update my blog and keep you all informed of not only what I’m doing, but the normal ranting and raving that is my life on the ‘Net.

All-in-all, I’ll be out of North Carolina from June 28th to July 3rd.
