In the 1970s, Dinos Christianopoulos, a Greek poet and gay man, penned these words:
what didn’t you do to bury me

but you forgot that I was a seed

Today, following complaints from Kevin Lower supporters, the Facebook page Bloomington Deserves Better Than Kevin Lower was removed for allegedly violating Facebook’s terms of use. Facebook’s claim was that we bullied a private individual. Since mayoral candidate Lower is a public official, we have appealed this decision.

While it is true that we had poured many hours and personal money into growing the page, it was only one of several of our branches, to carry on with the seed analogy. Whether Lower wins or loses, whether our page is republished or not, we are here to stand up against bigots and their false accusations.

Watch this space.

We are here to stay.
