Gay Stories: San Francisco Supervisor Bevan Dufty on Bullying



GuestbloggerNathan Manske and Marquise Lee just finished a 4 month, 50 state tour of the United States collecting stories for their I'm From Driftwood site. We'll be sharing some of the stories they collected along with some of the insight into what they saw. They're still encouraging people to submit their written stories via IFD.

Manske says: Driftwood

Harvey Milk was the inspiration for creating “I’m From Driftwood” so being in San Francisco was a special moment on the Tour. We met Supervisor Bevan Dufty, who represents the same district Harvey Milk did, after he finished meeting with some folks from his district to talk about some local issues. Listening in on the public event through the church’s doors, it was charming hearing him talk with his constituents about garbage pick-up issues, reminding me how Milk scored a lot of points by focusing on every day issues like cleaning up dog poop in the park.

Bevan shared a story about bullying he experienced when he was in 3rd grade, and I couldn’t help but wonder what Harvey would have to say about all the bullying and suicides going on today.

  1. The LGBT community of San Francisco are lucky to have a politician like Bevan Dufty on their side. He is one of the good ones--and he is going to make a great mayor! Thanks for sharing your story!

  2. Ah, Bevan Dufty, the biggest gay poser in San Francisco. I still don't understand how a man in a committed "relationship" with a woman he has a child with, and who routinely puts a damper on fun in the Castro, is a good representative for the Gay community. I'll take an open-minded straight over him any day.

  3. Ugh. Stephen you are tripping. the LGBT community could do sooo much better than this poseur. I will work for pretty much any one but Bevan in the next election. He is the one that sank Halloween in the Castro. New Orleans can have Mardi Gras for frakkin decades, but SF can't handle Halloween? Give me a break.
