Some People Are Boycotting The Rose Parade Because Of THE GAYZ: LAist

Here’s an insane missive from the group:

The Rose Parade shouldn’t be used by gay activists to promote the gay agenda, and a rose parade float is no place to flagrantly display a gay wedding. But I guess they think they can pervert this year’s theme “Dreams Come True,” to allow this disgusting exhibition. Tell them NO! Tell their sponsors NO. Tell them you will boycott the parade by not watching or attending, and that you will NEVER watch or be part of it again.

In all honesty, it’s extremely sad to see something like this in this day and age, where marriage equality is more commonplace than it has ever been and people are making genuine steps to make this country a better place for all Americans. The fact that these people exist is a scary reminder that we still have a long way to go.

‘American Transgender’ Looks at the Lives of Three Trans People and Their Families, Tonight: VIDEO

Americantransgender

Tonight at 8pm ET, NatGeo is airing American Transgender, a look into the lives of three transgender people and their families.

Watch a preview featuring Eli Strong which looks at the physical aspects of gender reassignment, on Towleroad.com

Said Strong to the National Center for Transgender Equality about making the doc: “I was able to have conversations with my family that I’d never been able to have. I was able to show how ‘normal’ my life is. It also gave me the opportunity to give voice to some of my own struggles, as well as some of those I’ve heard from my trans peers.”
