Day Zero

I’m in San Francisco and just completed the LifeCycle ortientation training (NOT sexual orientation training–I gmisread the brochure. Damn it.). Getiing up tomorrow at 4:30am. Seriously. Just some of the 2500 bikes ready to roll out pictured below. Wish me luck. And DONATE! Http://tofighthiv.org/goto/robtish

Biking My Butt Off

From May 31-June 6 I’ll be cycling from San Francisco to LA (545 miles!), raising money to fight AIDS. The ride starts in 3 days and I’m waaay behind in my fundraising efforts.

So if you’ve enjoyed this blog or my videos, please give what you can. I love those triple-donations, but I’m grateful […]

Talking Equality

Day of Decision

Confused about when the Supreme Court will hand down its decision on Prop 8? Unsure of what to do the day it’s announced? My friend Matt has put together a great orientation video so you can make like a hamster (just watch the vid).

Go Whoopi.

I always get drawn into the this clip from The View, and how Whoopi handles herself in the discussion.  She has a great solid demeanor during the whole thing — not confrontational, but not backing off her beliefs.  It’s a great little case study for how to talk about marriage equality with people who don’t […]

I Want My Same-Sex Discount!

By now, you’ve probably seen this insane analysis by Republican Party Chairman Michael Steele on how marriage equality will hurt small business:

Now all of a sudden I’ve got someone who wasn’t a spouse before, that I had no responsibility for, who is now getting claimed as a spouse that I now have financial responsibility for. […]

Jon Stewart on DADT

Has everyone seen this yet? Brilliant. The gay stuff begins about three minutes in.  And, oops, in my first version of this post, I left out the best part (in the second video).
