The wonderful thing about the Internet is that it can connect one person doing something courageous in obscurity with millions of other people around the world.

In this clip from, Jeff Girard confronts the County Supervisors in the Yuba-Sutter area in Northern California. It’s Yes on 8 territory—and the county is also pushing to overturn SB48, the state’sLGBT-inclusive history bill.

Standing before your local governing body and calling them on their shit is nervewracking. We would seriously rather get our teeth cleaned. Jeff tells us he’d “been gone from the area a few years,” so we can only imagine what kind of hurt and anger had been building up.

Props to you, Jeff, for standing up and speaking out.
