DUMB DUMB Donald Trump looks into a mirror being held by an aide at CPAC 2021 in Orlando, Florida.

There he was in his stock uniform. Wearing that wrinkled navy blue ill fitting suit. The ‘Just For Men’ dyed blonde hair and orange makeup. His red necktie askew, held together with scotch tape and never tied properly.

As we celebrate the success of our ‘rainbow wave’, and the record numbers of gay and lesbian  candidates elected to Congress and state legislatures across the country, it’s dispiriting to hear about the violence and hateful rhetoric directed at the LGBTQ community on a constant basis.

Today I read about another controversy that involves Chick-Fil-A and gay rights, and the ensuing right-wing backlash. I’ve never stepped one foot into a Chick-Fil-A because they hate our community, and doubt I ever will.

Gay Rights Champion Confronts Bigotry In NYC Times Square

Citizens for Transparency's NoGays.org billboard in Times Square
At the crossroads to the world in Times Square, Christmas shoppers and New Year's Eve revelers will be greeted by Citizens for Transparency's "No Gays Allowed" billboard. The gay rights champions implore people to STOP Alliance Defending Freedom by visiting NoGays.org.


Gay rights champion Citizens for Transparency shines a light on the gay hating Christian legal beagles who represented the aggrieved baker in the Masterpiece Cakeshop case, with a big prominent billboard in Times Square. Laura Ingraham and Fox Snooze aids and abets this dark and sinister organization, by amplifying their message and spreading their insidious brand of anti-LGBT hate.


Washington, D.C. – From the ‘gimme a gay break department’... The lesbian gay bisexual and transgender community is outraged by the verbal attacks and manufactured anger exhibited by a homophobic television entertainer and her guest, the double talking senior counsel for a Christian hate group. (The hypocrisy is stunning)
