The Silence of the Shams

Namely, gay ‘media.’

From planetransgender:

Watch Denver Wrangler protesters explain their grievances. So why is gay media still silent?

A very diverse group of LGBT people and allies met Sunday afternoon in front of a bear gay bar called “The Denver Wrangler” to bring attention to their denying entrance to Vito John Marzano, a regular patron who happened to be in drag that day after performing at a nearby fundraiser.

The response?

You know what comes next, right?


Oh yeh…

No intolerance or non-acceptance there at all – in what might be the first instance of anyone de facto apologizing for the fact that other people (namely, anyone who sees the sign) can read.

Kelli Busey’s summation:

“Trans-erasure” “Gay Supremacist” Gay misogyny? Am I being melodramatic? Well lets go to gay blogs that have picked up this story who have published a empathetic view….


That’s not for a lack of trying. I tried to get gay blogs to speak about this when it the story first broke.

Same as it ever was…

  1. (speechless)

  2. When Brent is refused a public accommodation for his gay marriage, will that be a civil right?
