  1. While I totally agree with the message, the music and the editing of that video were really grating on my nerves by the end.

  2. Really don't like this guy. He's more interested in gaining popularity and appearing a certain way than actually pushing the message. And second, his message is kind of stupid. He's like essentially conceding that he thinks Romney would be better than Obama in terms of the economy, but that gay rights are more important. I'm willing to bet Ryan guy doesn't know much about any of the issues. Obama is better on all fronts.

  3. I am gay and voting for Mitt.

  4. That's a shame, Scott.

  5. well then Scott that would kind of make you an idiot wouldn't it, to vote for a man who supports a constitutional amendment to keep you a second-class citizen?

    on the other hand, in your case, he may be right.

  6. @SCOTT is not gay.

    No American aware of his/her rights, who knows how to read, who knew how to click and watch this clip, would ever in his/her right mind vote for a divisive, xenophobic, homophobic, and all over begot, elitist twit like Mitt Romney.

    Grow a pair already, and take charge of your life and rights as an American citizen. And stand up ON EQUAL FOOTING AS ALL AMERICAN CITIZENS.

  7. Even if this video itself doesn't reach enough of those 1 in 5 voters to make an electoral difference, I hope that it will at least push the rest of us to talk about why LGBT rights are not just about single issue voting for us.

  8. It's racism. It's the only explanation.

  9. The mysteries of human nature, Hitler had some jewish collaborators.

  10. This dude's "fierce diva" persona is so annoying.

    Every time he is in a video he talks like at any moment he's about break into his own rendition of "And I Am Telling You (I'm Not Going)."

    I appreciate the intent of his videos but the delivery needs work. He has the right to do whatever he wants but if you want to appeal to more people the angry diva has to go...

  11. I don't know Ryan James Yezak personally, but I hope that those of you who have commented on his voice, editing, and or entire video will be submitting your own video to help educate our community about speaking to those who are considering giving their vote to Romney.

    I think Ryan is doing a great job, and we all on the day before the elections should concentrate on calling, talking, and urging our brothers and sister to vote no matter who they decide.

  12. Shaming LGBT Americans who support Mitt Romney seems awfully un-American to me and could almost be considered a form of voter suppression. Isn't it time to stop using wedge issues to determine who you'll vote for? Don't forget that a Democrat signed DOMA into law (Clinton). And I guess Obama's recent decision to support same-sex marriage (in an election year!) is just proof that he's come down with a case of "romnesia." Barack Obama doesn't care about gays, he just wants our votes.

  13. I already voted Mitt. What this queen doesn't realize is a President doesn't go around small business bashing. He'll lose every time . For all the political brilliance he's supposed to harbor, he sure is in idiot-mode most of the time.

  14. @Scott:

    We have always had taitors; we always will have traitors:
    there has always been one who sold the Pass,cf: Thermopalae;
    who opened the gates;
    who lit the signal fire for the enemy;
    who took the thirty pieces of silver.

    Thanks Scott.

  15. Obama is certainly a lot better for "the economy," unless by the economy one means the wealth of Americans with the highest incomes. Economic output, productivity, the number and quality of jobs, per capita income, the health and security of most Americans, the nation's infrastructure, educational opportunities, the natural environment and the government's deficit, among other economic indicators, would all be worse under the prescriptions of radical right-wind Republican ideology, which Romney is destined to pursue.

  16. I couldn't stand watching the guy on this video for more than 30 seconds. He was almost as annoying as Romney. But don't vote Romney.

  17. Gay Republicans are irrelevant.

    Posted by: Joey | Nov 5, 2012 6:15:07 PM

  18. @ricardo. So true, Hitler did have Jewish collaborators. He also had high profile gay supporters who thought the third reich would bring about another Roman Empire. Sadly they too were never heard from again, and most probably now lie in a mass grave near Sachsenhausen.

    It's a slippery slope friends.

  19. Most Republican/conservative gays are either the types who think that lots of money will get them by without the equal rights (and they think Republicans are the party best served to create policies that give them that money), or they're the types that resent liberalism, what the gay community stands for, and are basically your garden variety straight social conservative who happens to be attracted to the same-sex.

    People like Scott and Markus DO NOT care about gay rights. They are all about the $$$$$$. Then others like Jason, are basically anti-gay homosexuals.

    I've given up talking sense to them. They aren't worth it.

  20. well done.

    and anyone who believes that they can do it better can stop typing, get their webcam running, and do it better.

    and then post and share it.

    because you apparently know how to do it better. so do it.

  21. btw, if your party is running a campaign on anti-gay prejudice the your party doesn't actually care about jobs and the economy.

  22. Lots of bitching about Ryan James not being nice and sweet and charismatic in his video, but I don't see any of the bitchers doing a video and posting it, themselves. As for anyone who votes Romney, not just Gays, I consider you traitors to everything this country stands for. And if you are gay and vote for him, you are spitting in our faces, on top of it.

  23. I noticed this blog completely ignored Signorile telling a gay Romney voter to go commit suicide.

    Thanks for the bias, but this blog just makes me not even want to identify as gay ever again...

  24. I'm with you Scott....gay and proudly voting for Romney/Ryan.

  25. Stupid video.
