North Carolina's own Pam Spaulding (one of the most prolific LGBT bloggers today) was rightfully outraged following yesterday's breaking news that lawmakers in her state approved a wide-sweeping anti-gay amendment. Utilizing the eloquence and passion that her readers and fans appreciate, Spaulding spoke at a vigil in Durham last night, one of many held across North Carolina to mourn the abrupt loss of equality. Follow the jump for video of one of the state's leading LGBT activists reacting to the nightmarish situation.
Writes Spaulding in the post on Pam's House Blend that contains the video:
"the #1 reason that I will never hold public office – I’m incapable of diplomacy ignorant bigots get under my skin. And there was a bumper crop of stupidity, asshattery and embarrassment at levels that I couldn’t fathom in 2011. I’m glad that we had lawmakers who stood for equality during the House deliberations that resulted in the job-killing hate amendment passing 75-42."
