Eat Steak, Burgers And More To Support Affirmations

Logan's Roadhouse will be supporting the LBGTQ community of metro Detroit every first Thursday for the rest of the year in their "Raising the Steaks" effort. In support of Ferndale's LGBT community and resource center, Affirmations, all seven Metro-Detroit locations will donate 20% of every dine-in and carry out purchase from 4 p.m. until close on the specified Thursdays to the center and the LGBTQ community. The percent of these purchases, pre-tax, includes beverages. To participate, customers need to print out a specially coded ticket or pull it up on their smartphones. The ticket can be found at

"It feels great to have our local Logan's Roadhouse team reach out in support of equality by providing such a generous opportunity," said Jon Fitzgerald, Interim Executive Director at Affirmations. "As a community, it is vitally important that we support and patronize those businesses that support us. This first Raise the Steaks event is especially exciting as it happens during our kickoff of Ally Rush Week."

Ally Rush Week is Affirmations' week devoted to recruiting, and celebrating, ally help and support.

"My hope is that the LGBTQ community and our allies will go out and enjoy a wonderful meal in support of the great work Affirmations is doing," Fitzgerald said.

Logan's Roadhouses can be found in Roseville, Shelby Township, Troy, Southgate, Canton, Livonia and Auburn Hills.

In a Sept. 27 op-ed in the Detroit News, conservative Republican columnist Nolan Finley raised serious concerns about three Republican candidates running for the state house Nov. 4. Todd Courser of Lapeer, Cindy Gamrat of Plainwell and Gary Glenn of Midland -- all correctly identified by Finley as a "trio (who) seeks tea party tyranny." Nolan describes Glenn and Courser as "extremely anti-gay (who) would turn the Republican Party into a fundamentalist denomination of the Christian Church if given the chance." Finley warned that the trio's narrow views on the Legislature could cripple the government and its ability to work across the aisle to move the state forward. Their agenda also includes killing any expansion of the Elliot-Larsen act to include LGBT protections.
