A massive rally kicked off late this afternoon in front of NYC's LGBT Community Center where thousands of people gathered to march to the site at Sixth Avenue and 8th Street where Mark Carson was murdered over the weekend in an anti-gay hate crime.

City Council Speaker Christine Quinn and DOMA plaintiff Edie Windsor were spotted at the front of the march.

  1. attacks like these have been on the rise in the Netherlands and Belgium yet the Dutch and Belgian people react nothing like this. I am very very much impressed with new yorkers I wish my countrymen would react the same!

  2. Mary,

    Women are sellers by nature. As such, they sell. Because women have to extract sperm from a man in order to get pregnant, she will do whatever is necessary, including fake her interest in sex, in order to extract it. Faking enables the sale.

    This also means faking her sexuality in an overall sense.

    As for the march, why were women permitted to lead it. I would have pushed them off.

  4. Patrick,

    Holland and Belgium have been taken over by the apathy of the liberal mindset. New York also has a degree of liberal apathy. Liberalism always leads to apathy because it is the ultimate selfish credo.

  5. The victim could always be "someone's son." You see that at every event. The woman thread has really gone off the deep end. I pity today's gays. Welcome to inclusive hell.

  7. Way to come together NYC! Now please, PLEASE come together and learn how to defend yourselves against the crazies who would do you serious bodily harm! Being strong, able-minded, and able-bodied in a pinch is not only potentially life saving, it's...well I'm just gonna throw this out there..confidence does make one...Hotter.

  8. Adam's reductio ad absurdum (did I say that right?) that women will do what it takes to get a man's stuff, his sperm, that male seed is a kind of nectar to gather for the purpose of motherhood, is interesting. One can certainly look at it that way. But it is so much more complex than that, with so many variables that go far into the emotional makeup of the people involved - the men for instance who can have the most profound need for children and yearning for , parenthood, and the men, the young fathers, who ardently don the mantle of warrior protector of the family.

    I don't believe you have a balanced view sir but your role as provocateur is complete.

  9. great to see everyone united for such a great cause. Thank you, New York, for showing the world how it should be done.

  10. Adam, whoever 'Adam' is [this site is so full of trolls, you never really know who you're dealing with] is %100 correct. There were few black people in that crowd. Mostly the usual folks who show up for these events. I'm not hating on them, just an observation.

    It's depressing to say this, but Mr. Carson's murder is bringing about the usual cliched responses that will help prevent more people like Marc Carson from being a victim of a violent crime. We should be addressing why there's been such an epidemic of violent urban street crime for the past half century in America, why our justice system is apparently broken because psychos like Morales should not have been out roaming the streets, and there are many more like him. Why are so many dangerous and otherwise seriously mentally ill people roaming the streets, why is there not more effective treatment for substance abuse, how do psychos like Morales fall through the cracks of our criminal and mental health system.

    I realize nothing that I just posted above is part of the gay 'advocate' agenda and narrative. The shills and true believers will continue their pointless discussion, repeating their mantras ad nauseum.

  11. Praying for healing from the evil myth of heterosexual-supremacy that fuels this violence against us born perfectly non-heterosexual.

  13. Who in fact are "LGBT leaders"? A bunch of self-appointed, self-promoting party planners and star fukcers, who design a catchy letterhead and start raising money to first pay their six-figure salaries plus benefits that come with the mostly no-show jobs they give themselves. The rally for Mark Carson on 8th St. last night was beautiful, except for the speakers. Not one said what needs to be said: that a police force dedicated to terrorizing peaceful young men of color cannot be expected to protect a peaceful young man of color. All the nonprofits in town, including LBGT nonprofits, have their collective lips sewn so tightly to the Emperor Bloomburg's wrinkly little billion dollar sphinctor that nobody dare mention the elephant in the room. Disgrace.

  14. JD - I strongly encourage you to take that message and put it on youtube. Seriously. Often, the only "weapon" we have is public outrage, and public outrage needs a visible face to give it power.
