Here's a 2-minute movie about a gay scooter gang that'll rev up your heart.
This is no ordinary biker club. Technically, they're not one at all — they ride scooters!
When I think of motor bike clubs, something more like "Sons of Anarchy" comes to mind.
But here's a club you probably haven't heard of.
They burn rubber on scooters (not choppers), but they're still total bad-asses ... in their own right.
The club started with a group of people who, as scooter-loving gays, gravitated toward each other at biker rallies around the country. Then in 2004, they decided to make a whole thing of it, and SQREAM was born!
SQREAM = Scooter Queers Riding Everywhere And More
Keep in mind that the LGBT rights movement has come a long way since SQREAM took their first ride. In the early 90s, their founders faced an outright denial of their constitutional rights by a state ballot initiative.
Under the law, a gay person couldn't even get a library card! Thankfully, the law was overturned ( multiple times ) by people who actually know the constitution.
Members of SQREAM know their work is not done.
So they've been riding year-after-year for over a decade for something we all want: EQUALITY.
"I think we all fight every single day to see the positive changes because there's a lot of people that have gone before us not having these rights."
It doesn't take much to see how just their cause really is.
Here's the key: See them as human beings . Easy, right? It's even in their charter:
Sound familiar ?
And given the progress that's been made over just the last decade, I'd say every mile has been worth it.
