25? Please, They Wish.


Today marks the 25th anniversary of the founding of the Human Rights Campaign, the groundbreaking gay political action committee. For a quarter of a century they have been second to none in their ability to raise money, which they use mostly to keep millions of gays and lesbians abreast of what they should be mad about. Their work may or may not have helped more gay-friendly politicians get elected to office, and very nearly almost got President Clinton not to enact "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."

But even Angry Torpedos like us cannot argue with HRC's greatest contribution to gay society: the creation of a bumper sticker that isn't fucking hideous.
