GLIL gathers at old bar in DC, now serving food; curious story about Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman mentioned
I did find a nice gathering of GLIL, the remnant from “Gays and Lesbians for Individual Liberty” (I don’t mean guilty remnant from “The Leftovers”) at Windows, the upstairs bar just below R St on 17th in Washington DC, about the Dupont Italian Kitchen.
The place actually serves hamburgers and fries on Monday and Tuesday nights.
We did have some conversations about Ferguson, and there was a feeling that the actual evidence that Brown was indeed very aggressive at first is overwhelming. There was also an interpretation of Trayvon Martin that I have never heard, that he attacked George Zimmerman because he thought George, “following him around”, was a “gay rapist”, story here. It’s true, that is how some men interpret being “watched”. The film “OC87”, reviewed on the Movies blog Nov. 22, 2014; OCD behavior can set up this kind of possibly deadly confrontation.
The Level One (discussed Nov. 29) and Cobalt, across the street, appeared to be operating completely normally.
