The mainstream press was all over “Day Without Gays” this morning, but political scandals will likely eclipse the story in the rest of the news cycle.

My partner suggested a few weeks ago that we take off Dec. 10, but I’m pretty sure I’m coming to work. The reason is that my coworkers, the people who know me and know my husband, aren’t the ones who could use a lesson about what it’s like not to have me around the office.

It’s about as fruitless (pun intended) as marching at the gay bar for the gay pride parade — it’s the people who don’t see us everyday who need the educating.

Any thoughts?
