Garden State Equality and Frivolous Deeds of Treachery

“It was a mistake,” you said. But the cruel thing was, it felt like the mistake was mine, for trusting you.”

David Levithan, The Lover’s Dictionary

By Tommy DeSeno

beheadingGarden State Equality (GSE) is a civic group that supports equality for the LGBT community in New Jersey.  Started in 2004 by Steven Goldstein, a college professor and activist, it is run today by 25 year old Christian Fuscarino.  It’s powerful, with politicians and news media always at their events.
