Gay Activist Glitters Homophobic General Mills Protest: VIDEO


Andrew Parrish, spokesman for the anti-gay group Minnesota for Marriage posted this video of a gay activist glittering a crowd protesting General Mills over the company's support for marriage equality. The video's description — and the related headline from the equally homophobic National Organization for Marriage — presents the group as victims, particularly the seniors and children.

"Minnesota for Marriage peacfully [sic] demonstrating outside General Mills then these kids showed up. Some of the kids were as young as three and some of the seniors as old as 85 plays victim," it reads, conveniently ignoring the fact that the activist is himself a kid: I'd estimate 16 or so.

Watch the video AFTER THE JUMP.

  3. Very proud of this young man for standing up for his rights. I would much rather see teenagers as activists than suicide statistics. He is a brave young man!

  4. If only there were an army of glitter people and more to bring attention to these anti-gay Christians who use their hate to attack a young gay man, shame on the anti-gay Christians who are wrong and know it deep down, these anti-gay Christians assault LGBT people every day around the world with their hate and persecution. These Christians are also the ones behind kill the gays agenda going on in Africa today.

  5. I really don't think physical intimidation is ever acceptable. I don't like the glitter-bomb thing any more than the pies in the face.

  6. LGBT people need to be on the alert for these anti-gay Christians who are going around and pointing out gay people to others in public and getting others to call the homosexuals and fags etc. and they get some of these people and children to make fun for the gays and laugh at the gays to harass them. The thing to do it point out the haters and anti-gay Christians and laugh back at them for being so hateful. These anti-gay Christians think that their failed psychological warfare to mentally harass gays will work but we can turn it around and video these anti-gay Christians and post their picture on youtube for the world to see who they are, so we LGBT people know who watch out for.

  10. I don't know why he even bothered. I have been past there and there are tens of people, guys. One of the most pathetic "protests" I have ever seen. Throw glitter on the politicians that fought to get that d@mn amendment on our ballot this year.

  11. I'd hit it, that a** looks nice in those jeans!

  12. While I applaud him for his activism I'm not a big fan of the whole "glitter bombing" thing. It's more silly and obnoxious than effective, more likely to elicit rolled eyes than changed minds. But then crying over what a victim you are over a little glitter doesn't win you many fans either.

  13. This glitter-bomb thing has jumped shark. Bombing a candidate isn't effective. Bombing poster holders of any age is just destructive. Sell yourself modeling as a brunette Bebar and give the money for homeless gays your age. That's effective.

  14. Yeah, physical aggression is really not OK, especially not random. If you can't find ideas and words and displays, your argument needs work.

  15. If you watch the video the boy is brave to go up to these anti-gay Christian middle class losers and make his point. These poor middle class anti-gay Christians are losing their oppressive grip on America and this drives them nutz, they have home loans and work a job they do not like and that makes them a slave to the system and they want to make everybody just as trapped and miserable as they are so they hold down anybody who might do better or get better like the LGBT people who want to rise up and get equal and Civil Rights just like them. These middle class anti-gay Christians use to make slaves out of the blacks and now that they no longer have them to beat they need to take it out on the gays. We need to change that real fast while we can and this is the time for all good gays to come to the aid of their brothers and sisters and fight the good fight to win the same rights as others in America. Together we can do it but we must work together to get all of our freedoms now. Don't let the trapped and enslaved middle class anti-gay Christians stop you.

  16. The glitter bomber is hot.

  17. The bigots do know it is glitter, right? They have more chance of getting a paper cut from their ugly signs that getting harmed by that. KUDOS to the kid showing his life and love are not to be tromped on!

    We must have more than one RICK on this website because that kid looked way too effeminate for MANLY MAN RICK.

  18. I'm ambivalent about the glitter-bombing thing, but this one is a score.

  23. You gotta love this brave gay kid! (And yes he is cute) But what makes him really hot is his defiant gay pride!

  24. Find it hard to take protesters seriously who show up in flipflops and bermuda shorts.
