This is my first Pride Report for 2010. (I will, of course, be making the annual post on the anniversary of Stonewall). We went to the Baltimore parade yesterday and the festival today, and at both we ran into this coalition of hotel workers and gay rights activists. What an excellent idea! Communities that fight for people's rights should work together; we should recognize that, as Desmond Tutu has said, "My humanity is bound up in yours, for we can only be human together." I encourage you all to visit the website, take the pledge, and boycott Hyatt. If you are travelling, Unite Here! has a great tool for finding hotels that treat their workers justly. That can also be reached through the website.

Happy Pride, everyone, and remember to do good for others, as often as you can, wherever you are.
