Tom Sena's Paradox
featured in Hermes,
No. 12

Tom started the organization in 1990 as a fledgling cohort operating under the moniker “Gays Against Abortion.” In 1991, early member Joe Beard proposed changing the name to the PLAGAL acronym. Tom wrote to voting members, “‘plagal’ is a musical term designating the central tone that holds a chord together…our plagal note sits right there in the statement...that our rights as gay women and men, and the rights of unborn children, are the same human rights—not just similar, but exactly the same.”
