Gay city councilman Bill Rosendahl finds himself at the center of the controversy: "I'll vote against this [fee waiver] today to show that homophobia will not be supported by the city of Los Angeles. It goes with the territory — I'm the elected official here who is gay. I'm now the point person on these issues and it's part of my portfolio. I accept it." Rosendahl had earlier seconded the motion to rename the intersection, before he had learned of Price's views.

  1. Only in Los Angeles would some city councilman move to name a street after a bigot with out doing their research first. Now, they are left with egg on their faces.

  2. The burning of the gay club in Brownsville doesn't suprise me. I grew up 15 minutes in the next town over, Harlingen. The dogmatic Catholic rehtoric is beaten into just about every latino there. Parents take their gay youth to the church to try to "help" them see the supposed error of their ways. It's rather backwards due to its close proximity to Mexico.
