Gay news; Alabama prom discrimination, R.I gays not allowed to bury each other, men attempt to burn gay flag

12 11 2009

A lesbian teen wanted to take her girlfriend to her school’s prom. She had personally raised over $200 and even created the theme for the year. Tharptown High School refused to let her bring her date to the prom and after several organizations demanded she as allowed to attend the school decided to cancel the prom all together. Making the girl the scapegoat. What a bunch of bigot assholes.

Rhode Island Governor Don Carcieri vetoes a new law that would allow same-sex couples to make burial decisions for each other. According to him that is a disturbing erosion of the principles surrounding traditional marriage. So even when dead as a gay men you deserve no basic rights according to that asshole.

In Memphis 2 men were arrested after they attempted to set fire on a rainbow flag at the Memphis Gay and Lesbian Community Center. The arrest was not after a fight with the police though and one of the men had to be punched and pepper-sprayed. It’s the second act of vandalism on the center. In september a billboard featuring a gay marine as destroyed on Nation Coming Out day. The crime inspired hundreds to rally in response.
