Our community, however, has not come so far as to forget how easily the government has acted to track us, raid our bars, arrest our activists. As we mark World AIDS Day we remember the valid distrust we felt about our government in the early days of the pandemic. This distrust led us to fight to keep HIV/AIDS patients’ identity secret and to make anonymous testing available.
So it is from this perspective that Bay Windows endorses Congressman Mike Capuano for Senate. Capuano’s understanding on the dangers of the Patriot Act, the inherent unfairness of the death penalty and other issues essential to the health of civil liberties under all administrations make him the candidate with the ideals closest to those held by Ted Kennedy.
Bay Windows urges you to vote Mike Capuano on Dec. 8.
The editorial also praises Coakley for fighting for the LGBT community.
Capuano also picked up the endorsement of the Mayor of Gloucester, Carolyn Kirk and The Brookline Tab.
