Bachmann “Glittered,” Get Equal Supporting Such Actions

The “glittering” fad — which began when Nick Espinosa tossed glitter at Newt Gingrich earlier this year and continued when others “glittered” Tim Pawlenty — continued across the GOP 2012 presidential field today when pro-LGBT activist Rachel E. B. Lang “glittered” Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) at the RightOnline conference.

The difference today was that Get Equal was on the case immediately, sending out supportive tweets about the action — which, for the most part, missed Bachmann — and launching a subpage: http://getequal.org/getglitter

By visiting the site, one learns:

GetEQUAL is supporting anyone who wants to join the “Glitterati” — who wants to let anti-LGBT politicians know that their hate is not welcome in political debates, whether it’s for President of the United States or President of the School Board.

With today’s Bachmann action, then, the “glittering” incident has garnered the support of an LGBT organization — and one known primarily for its direct action and civil disobedience surrounding “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” repeal and the Employment Non-Discrimination Act.
