URGENT ACTION ALERT:
SB2 is targeting transgender girls and women in sports.
Once again, the Oklahoma Legislature is ignoring their own procedural deadlines to push anti-LGBTQ2S+ legislation. This time they’re trying to stop transgender kids from participating in sports. This bill is harmful, dangerous, and unconstitutional. We need your help to stop this bad bill now! Legislators have slipped anti-transgender language into a completely unrelated bill and are moving fast to push this discriminatory attack on children.
Transgender kids play sports for the same reasons as other kids—to have fun, foster relationships, and learn skills like leadership and teamwork. Transgender kids, like all kids, just want to belong. Attempting to take that from kids who are already so vulnerable is cruel.
It’s up to us to protect our communities. We know you’ll work with us to do just that. Transgender people are a valuable part of our communities and trans kids belong.
Call your Senator NOW and tell them NO TO SB2.
Athletes and Coaches: Add Your Name for Transgender Inclusion; No on SB 2!

April is Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), LGBTQ+ people experience sexual violence at higher rates than straight and cisgender people.
Research suggests half of transgender people and bisexual/pansexual women will experience sexual violence at some point in their lifetimes. Anti-LGBTQ+ hate crimes can often take the form of sexual violence. Transgender women of color are the most vulnerable. LGBTQ+ individuals are less likely to report sexual assault than straight and cisgender individuals.
Oklahomans for Equality wishes to open a dialog between the LGBTQ+ community and the agencies that support victims, investigate sex crimes, and prosecute offenders. Oklahomans for Equality supports and believes survivors. If you or someone you know is dealing with the aftermath of sexual violence, GET HELP NOW at 1-800-656-HOPE (4673).

In-Person Special Membership Meeting 
Thursday, May 13, 6:00 p.m. 
Dennis R. Neill Equality Center
621 E. 4th St., Pride Street
Tulsa, OK 74120

You are invited to an In-Person Special Membership Meeting to vote on a proposed amendment to the OkEq bylaws regarding how the organization currently elects the OkEq Board of Directors. You must be a member in good standing with your $50 membership fee current. This is an OKEQ membership meeting only.

Presently, OkEq bylaws require that the Board of Directors be elected by popular vote of its members in good standing. OkEq is seeking to implement current best practices for an LGBTQ+ community organization of its size, based on feedback from national and local LGBTQ+ leadership organizations, with guidance from Oklahoma nonprofits and other local leaders and fundraising organizations, and move the OkEq Board of Directors to a succession board. This would mean that the OkEq Board of Directors would, annually, with the advice and recommendations from our constituency, self-nominate the successor Directors to fulfill all the terms and conditions of a Director for the organization.

This is a major change in organizational policy, and OkEq needs the membership to vote on this issue. Please join us and make your voice heard. You must be a member in good standing with your $50 membership fee current.

You may also join this meeting remotely by Zoom by requesting special permission. You must be a member in good standing with your $50 membership fee current.

You must RSVP to get a zoom link to participate. Please RSVP by contacting us below by Wednesday, May 12th by 3:00 p.m. to register and receive the Zoom link.

Josh New “Confronting the Male Nude: 
A Figure Study of the Male Form."
Dennis R. Neill Equality Center
621 E. 4th St., Pride Street
Tulsa, OK 74120

Josh New is a commercial freelance photographer from Oklahoma specializing in portraiture and conceptual art. He received his MFA in Photography from the University of Tulsa in 2011, focusing on a thesis critically exploring modern American masculinity in both gay and straight cultures. He continues to create work showcasing the male form in hopes that one-day nudity, both male and female, will cease to be feared and brutally censored.
 
This show is a celebration of male beauty and figure photography that is currently banned from most social media platforms because it goes against “community standards.” Even when not sexualized, the human body continues to be censored and excluded from discussion in modern American society. My hope is to present beautiful, emotional, and thought-provoking work and show that these “community standards” are actually an archaic barrier to healthy reflection and comfort with our own bodies. The show will feature giant prints of male nudes that I hope viewers will feel comfortable looking at, analyzing, and discussing in the hopes that confronting the fears and misconceptions of nude figure photography, particularly of the male body, can foster a change into what our community accepts.

The show opens Thursday, April 1st, at the Dennis R. Neill Equality Center located at 621 E. 4th Street Tulsa, OK 74120. The show continues throughout the month with Covid measures in place.

Camp Fire of Green Country Summer Camp

Located near Wagoner, Oklahoma, Camp Waluhili's 219 acres include almost three miles of shoreline on Fort Gibson Lake, a bluff line, forests, and meadows. Campers and staff share semi-rustic, air-conditioned cabins with electricity and a restroom with shower houses nearby. Throughout the week campers will gain knowledge about the outdoors, explore new activities, make new friends, and, most importantly, have fun. Camp Fire trains all camp staff members to include campers with special needs or disabilities and hires one male and one female staff member specifically for children needing an individual buddy. We believe everyone should have the opportunity to experience camp! Camp Waluhili is the ideal place for campers to learn new skills, make new friends, and discover who they are.
