HRC Vandalized By Angry Gay Group


Looks like Barack Obama isn't the only entity some gay people are mad at this weekend.

As LGBT activists took to the streets to fight for their rights, the Human Rights Campaign's Washington, D.C., headquarters was vandalized this weekend -- by a gay group angry with the HRC for not being "inclusive."

The group spray-painted the words "Quit leaving queers behind" next to the building's front doors. The group, Queers Against Assimilation, later took credit for the vandalism on the website Lez Get Real.

The attack on the HRC coincided with this weekend's huge gala dinner, at which the president promised real change for the gay community during his administration, including an end to "don't ask, don't tell."

But critics of the president and of the HRC say change isn't coming fast enough, and that it should be the job of the HRC to put further pressure on him.
