Gay Realtors Say They've Nixed S.F Conference Due to Arizona Boycott

It warrants mentioning, however, that the "Atlanta Gay Network," a purported membership organization of 350 of 400, has no web presence whatsoever. Our e-mails to Franco have not yet been returned.
Matt Dorsey, spokesman for City Attorney Dennis Herrera, has spent a lot of time during the past few days fielding phone calls from people angry about San Francisco's views on Arizona's controversial new encouraging police to apprehend people who look Mexican. It was Herrera who wrote a letter to Major League Baseball asking that the All-Star game be pulled out of Arizona. While his ear may be buzzing from too many loud phone calls, Dorsey wasn't terribly worried about the city's tourism prospects.
"I think San Francisco is an international destination city," Dorsey said. "I have to believe that for every red state visitor who doesn't like immigrants, who's going to stay away from San Francisco, there's a lot more people from Europe, Asia, South America, and elsewhere who are happy to come to a city that welcomes diversity.
Great. Do any of them have gay Realtor groups they can bring along?
