Uppity Fag Reviews the Week in Gay
A look back at the queer week that was in the Bay Area and beyond.
The searing heat of gay indignation is shining directly on Jackson, Miss., where Constance McMillen has become a pariah for asking permission to wear a tuxedo and bring a her girlfriend to the prom. Dan Savage isn't happy about it and he's helping people get in touch with the local school board. Of course, there is a Facebook group that is growing by the hundreds every hour (44,900 at 11 p.m. on 3/11).
She just wants to go to the prom, is that so wrong?
Naturally, Mississippi isn't the only state exhibiting a surge in homo loathing.
Oklahoma is planning on opting out of the federal requirements for hate crime laws that now extend to covering crimes against LGBTs. In case you weren't aware, "sexual orientation is a very vague word that could be extended to extremes like necrophilia." Now you know.
Former New York Congressional Rep. Eric Massa isn't gay but he snorkels cocks so he quit his job. I'm not sure what that means. Maybe Roy can tell me.
Johnny Weir is too queer to ice skate. Really?
David W. Carmichael Johnny! Put that thing away!
Cynthia Nixon is mad as hell and hot as hell even though her manic grin scares me.
Finally -- an enlightening ABC News report from Nightline: "Heterosexuals do not eat poop."
Patrick Connors is a San Fransisco resident, who is happily married -- to a man.
