ROMNEY CAMPAIGN CONFIRMS PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE SUPPORTS GAY AMERICANS PARTICIPATING IN BOY SCOUTS
A video released by GLAAD shows presidential candidate Mitt Romney speaking on his support for gays in the Boys Scout, and according to the Associated Press, his Campain spokeswoman Andrea Saul confirmed that “this remains Romney’s position today.”
“The Romney campaign’s affirmation of his 1994 position comes after more than 400,000 Americans, including thousands of Scouts and Scout leaders and two Boy Scout national board members, have signed on in support of two Change.org petitions launched by former lesbian den mother Jennifer Tyrrell and Eagle Scout Zach Wahls.”
Romney was a former national board member of the Boy Scouts of America, and if you visit the new scoutsforequality.org, and you can see Mitt Romney featured among several prominent Scouts, Scout leaders, politicians, and celebrities who support allowing gays to participate in the Boy Scouts.
Although this is wonderful news, one may wonder why Romney has less support and opposing views on same-sex marriages.
29 States Can Fire You for Being Gay
“Qualified, hardworking Americans are denied job opportunities, fired or otherwise discriminated against just because they are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT). There is no federal law that consistently protects LGBT individuals from employment discrimination; it remains legal in 29 states to discriminate based on sexual orientation, and in 35 states to do so based on gender identity or expression. As a result, LGBT people face serious discrimination in employment, including being fired, being denied a promotion and experiencing harassment on the job.” via Human Rights Campaign
National Gay and Lesbian Task Force slams Boy Scouts of America’s reaffirmation of anti-gay policy
The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force today responded to the continuing refusal by the Boy Scouts of America to change its policy of excluding gay people. A special committee of Scouts leaders made its recommendation to reaffirm this anti-gay policy and, as a consequence, the Scouts’ national executive board reportedly will not reconsider changing its membership policy to allow gay people to serve in that organization.
This is the statement from Darlene Nipper, Deputy Executive Director, of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force:
“Clinging to a policy of exclusion and intolerance is hardly a good lesson for our young people. Once again, officials of the Boy Scouts of America have turned their backs on a chance to demonstrate fairness, exercise sound judgment, and serve as a role model for valuing others, free of bias and prejudice. This is deeply disappointing. Discrimination is never the right policy, period.”

NYC PRIDE: Matinee North America
by Antwyone Ingram
Every time I go to New York, it’s an experience. I’ve been robbed in New York, I’ve found love in New York, I’ve experienced the madness of New Years in Times Square, and a plethora of memories that are impossible to forget because they are so extreme. However, even though I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve visited the great city, I’ve never experienced Pride in New York. I’ve heard innumerable stories about pride weekend, all of which were intense, but I must say, even those unbelievable stories are no comparison to New York City during Pride weekend.
First on my Pride weekend itinerary was Matinee. After getting lost en route to the ferry (which is commonplace if you are not a local) it was safe to assume I was at the correct location as I began to see circuit queens with high tops, mini Gatorade bottles full of “water,” oversized calves and torsos, and Chinese fans skipping frantically towards the docking station. My female companion (and ordained “fag-hag”) was in awe, as I struggled to not stare at the copious amount of “meat” that was surrounding me in line. Upon boarding, it was quite surreal to be on a ferry with a couple hundred gay men, heading to an island, while waving goodbye to the Manhattan skyline. I’ve been to many circuit parties, but I knew I was in for something different. Pre-boarding, I had envisioned quite the comical scene in my mind, that as I approached the island I would see hundreds of gay men dancing on an island to the “untz untz” of Billy Lace or Hector Fonseca. I broke into laughter and said to myself “are you serious?” as we docked at Governor’s Island, and my comical prediction was not only accurate, but even more exaggerated in person. Something about all of this seemed sinful, it was giving me Sodom & Gomorrah I told my female friend, chuckling.
After wiggling through gay TSA, I was introduced to a big gay playground. A big blowup slide, illuminated multicolor palm trees, a sand pit, and giddy gays greeted me. There was no shortage of eye candy, as muscle queens, porn stars, random women, and boys in scuba gear and other miscellaneous gear danced vigorously against the Manhattan skyline. Billy Lace was delivering a high energy set, setting the tone for the evening. As the sun began to set, a bigger crowd began to accumulate. After socializing in the sand for quite sometime, I decided to venture to the dance floor, which was packed like a can of sardines –muscled, tattooed, and sweaty sardines.
Hector Fonseca’s immaculate set screamed heart attack, as the BPM on every track forced you to dance. After working up a nice sweat myself, the music ceased and out comes Natasha Bedingfield. Decked out in jewels from head to toe, Ms. Bedingfield made her entrance looking like the gay tooth fairy meets the fairy godmother from the Wizard of Oz. She began with her hit tracks “Unwritten” and “Pocket Full of Sunshine.” She slayed (that’s good) the tracks vocally, which most female artist can’t do very well on stage, so I was impressed while not being impressed (I just wanted to dance.) Although cute and campy, it was random. Kudos for showing love to the gays though, girl.
The night continued predictably, as the music progressively got more intense and the crowd got increasingly sketchier. I had a great time; it was definitely one of the most interesting venues I’ve been to for a circuit party. However, the production of the event fell flat. Marketed as a “WATERPARK EXPERIENCE in the LARGEST outdoor venue in NY” was quite the exaggeration. Aside from the kiddy slide that was later deflated, and a big beach ball pouncing atop heads on the dance floor, there was nothing reminiscent of a water park (or an experience for that matter.) Matinee North America has always had this problem though, major productions in Europe, mediocre productions in the States.
Although I had an amazing time, I think I’ll save my circuit dollars for another circuit event until Matinee Group amps up the production. I could have created a better “water park experience” in my bathtub. I’ll leave it at this, my female companion (avid circuit queen & Alegria fan) left Matinee with one major highlight/memory - a Bratwurtz sausage. #KABOOM.

Colin Powell Supports Same-Sex Marriage
General Colin Powell said Wednesday on CNN’s “The Situation Room” that he supports legal same-sex marriage, either at the state or federal level.
“I have no problem with it. In terms of the legal matter of creating a contract between two people that’s called marriage, and allowing them to live together with the protection of law, it seems to me is the way we should be moving in this country. And so I support the president’s decision,” said General Powell.
Harvey Milk will be honored in the same way we honor leaders such as Martin Luther King Jr.
After the tireless efforts of a group of community leaders, LGBT civil rights leader Harvey Milk will be honored in the same way we honor leaders such as Cesar Chavez and Martin Luther King Jr.,” said Dwayne Crenshaw, San Diego LGBT Pride Executive Director.
“Harvey Milk dedicated his life to leading our community in the struggle for equal rights. The unveiling of Harvey Milk Street will mark a symbolic moment in our history and a step in the right direction towards achieving the truly American value of equality,” according to Crenshaw.
