Gay news; Stephen Gately funeral, march for gay bashing victim gets counter-protest, gays calling people homophobes that are not

18 10 2009

Yesterday was the very emotional funeral of gay Boyzone member Stephen Gately in Dublin. Many celebrities came to pay their respect or left messages of condolences. This was a truly loved individual. His former band member, with Ronan Keating, carried his coffin and held a vigil the night before. Last week a bitch from the Daily Mail used the rumors surrounding his death to slam the gay lifestyle, something that had ultimately nothing to do with his death. And even if it had been drugs, how many straight pop stars haven’t died of excess?? The thing that must be excruciatingly hard for his husband though, is knowing he had sex with another man while Gately died.

Yesterday was a march and rally in support of gay bashing victim Jack Price. Around 300 people came to Queens to show their support and protest against gay bashing. Surprisingly enough there were also some counter-protesters screaming for the release of the gay basher( unbelievable). Among the group of thugs was also the Leviticus tattoo guy I reported about earlier. According to locals this is the same group that caused the neighborhood to go downhill in the last few years. 

Some people in the gay community should be a little less quick with calling straight allies homophobic and screaming for their apology. This weekend “Girls Gone Wild” founder Joe Francis called a doorman a fag after being denied at a club. Of course this is stupid and juvenile but this is the same man who walked in the National Equality March last week so clearly no homophobe. And from Britain comes an even better example of ridiculousness. Gay icon Dannii Minogue and sister of THE gay icon Kylie told a singer who himself admitted he was bi-sexual that he could have left the lyrics to “And I’m telling you” to that of someone singing to a man. Why in the hell is that bad?? Apparently many people think she should not have brought up his sexuality but to say she is homophobic is just stupid.
