As many of you might recall, my partner and I were involved in an anti-gay incident at the Fort Lauderdale Airportabout two months ago. Many of you called local officals and the tourism bureau. As a result of your help, my partner and I were able to move the police and airport officials to take some action. Due to the intense media coverage, we received some negative backlash. Among other things, I have received hate mail sent to my office, and my partner has been spit on and called fag when he has been out in public. More importantly, however, we have received lots of support and thanks from around the country for pushing the issue and taking a stand.
