San Francisco Pride, 2017

Here are a few shots from Sunday’s Pride celebration in San Francisco.

I thought about the people I marched with in the GLF in the early 1970’s
and later, with Act–Up, in the 1980’s.

It felt good to hear the speakers honor the work we did in those decades

I thought of friends who passed from AIDS, or later from grief and trauma.

I think they’d be pleased that gay liberation became a global movement
for universal Human rights.

Love, defiance and pride are strong weapons against hate and tyranny.

Pride: We Are Family


If you live in San Francisco, June 24 is Pride Day.

I will be out all weekend loving life and taking pictures.

I dedicate this video to the men and women of the American Civil
Rights Movements
.

We are all religions, races and nationalities. We are gay, straight and transgender.

We will never return to our closets.

We are everywhere and we will never give up.

I chose “We are Family” by Sister Sledge because it’s a happy and
hopeful song.

I first made this video for Pride Month 2016.

We are always stronger together!

Now get up everybody and sing!

If I turned around every time somebody called me a faggot, I’d be walking backward – and I don’t want to walk backward.”

Dear Members of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy (about which Hillary was right)

Every so often I get a long deranged comment that goes like this:  Homos are part of a LIBERAL DEMOCRAT Marxist conspiracy and only a GAY FAGGOT transgender supports democrats because without welfare you would all die which is what should happen to you ANYWAY!!!! Your worship of crooked Hillary shows how far you will go to betray the white race and the LIBERTIES that TRUE AMERICANS CHERISH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Respectfully,

A Wingnut

 


My reply: I welcome conservative opinions that are logical and based on facts with links to credible sources. I do not consider Fox News, News Max or any other right-wing rumor mill a reputable or credible source.

You Wingnut conservatives have Donald Trump as your ‘voice’ and Fox News as your 24/7 Goebbels inspired news outlet.

You don’t need my blog.

Please see the memes below for other examples of horse shit I instantly
mark as spam.

And the story below is told as a fable about a Wingnut woman who gleefully sucks the empathy and soul out of a little girl.

If he’s like the homeless men I’ve seen he’s disabled by a mental illness made worse by the economic policies supported by that evil woman who wants you to think he’s lazy! Run to save your soul little girl! Never speak to that bitch again!

Let’s close by celebrating traditional liberal values as sung by
a gay, faggot homosexual…On Soooooooul Train!

 

 

I found these memes on Twitter. They are spread by GOP operatives:
I don’t know the source.

Democrats Don’t Have to Lie

Republican’s have lies about Hillary’s email and lies about Benghazi.

We have Republicans
