  1. Who is this Hoffman guy anyway, that he should be honored in any way? Just an actor stupid enough (1) to take heroin, (2) to get addicted to heroin, and (3) to overdose and kill himself. Not exactly a role model for anything worthwhile. We should honor people with self control and discipline.

  2. Give me something to be proud about at a gay pride parade and then I'll go to one.

    As long as it still features leather men giving each other head and rim jobs in full public view, I'm out.

  5. HRC is now dead to me.

    The ACLU hires Jimmy LaSalva & Steve Schmidt now the HRC is hiring Brian Jones. Unfu*kingbelievable. A Mitt Romney operative from Black Rock.

    After all the work we've done for decades they go and hire the very people that have worked to oppress us when we've finally turned the tide.

    Where is the accountability? No apologies, no statements of regret, no remorse for the lives they've impacted and deaths their slandering lies played a part in.

  6. So HRC has hired THREE employees of SKDKnickerbocker including Hilary Rosen? Is this the Hilary Rosen who helped turn HRCF into the Human Rights Champagne Fund, an organization whose Prime Directive is raising money simply to self-perpetuate its own mythical kingdom, HRCtopia, with its own flag and castle, while spending millions of dollars a year just to open its doors each day with an inflated staff with inflated salaries, sucking it out of every local community they enter, whose outright Lie about how many members they have grows Bigger and Bigger? Is it the Hilary Rosen who's defended publicly closeted gay Repugs who work for some of the most homophobic members of Congress? The Hilary Rosen who was a paid lobbyist for the ruthless recording industry and consultant for British Petroleum after their disastrous Gulf of Mexico oil spill? The Hilary Rosen about whom an unnamed senior Democrat told "The Nation" magazine: "It’s an open secret in the Dem consultant community that [Rosen's firm] SKD has been signing up clients based on ‘perceived White House access’ tied to prior relationships and employment," and "while lobbying for corporate tax breaks and for-profit colleges," while "like Newt Gingrich and Ed Gillespie, she exploits weaknesses in current lobbying registration law to avoid revealing her clients." The Hilary Rosen who defended the needless continuing discharges of gays in 2009, and who regularly hisses that anyone who criticizes Obama, Inc., in any way just isn't as politically "sophisticated" as she and her tribe of Beltway insiders constantly passing jobs and money between themselves? THAT Hilary Rosen????

  7. That reminds me, I've been meaning to hit up Toronto Pride.

    Johnny, no one can give you something to be proud about. My guess is the feeling will continue to elude you for the rest of your life.

  8. "Former SNL star turned teabagger Victoria Jackson"

    As usual leftists cannot hide their innate homophobia.

  9. She IS a "gormer SNL star turned teabagger Victoria Jackson", you stupid butt-monkie.

    Now go die in a fire like a good conservative.

    Posted by: Just Sayin' | Feb 6, 2014 8:27:13 PM

  10. Victoria Jackson was never a leftist. She left the Republican Party for the TP then left the TP to run as an independent. Her homophobia is Republican/TP inherent.

    Posted by: SERIOUSLY | Feb 6, 2014 8:38:07 PM

  11. @Joel,

    Right, because dying from a drug overdoes somehow negates the fact that this actor was enormously talented, influenced many actors with his craft, and left a legacy for generations to enjoy long after he's passed. Yeah, let's just pretend he and others like him never existed. Only perfect people who never make any mistakes like you are the only ones who should be honored. Idiot.

  12. Give me something to be proud about at a gay pride parade and then I'll go back. Until they again feature leather men giving each other head and rim jobs in full public view, I'm out.

  13. I have attended several Ottawa pride parades and have never seen anyone "buck-naked," because the organizers don't tolerate that. I attended one Toronto parade and although I didn't have a good view through the crowd the only totally nude participants I saw were a group of "naturists" near the front of the parade. Although there were lots of people "scantily clad" at both of these events I certainly never witnessed "men giving each other head and rim jobs in full public view," and I can see how that would turn people off.

    Councillor Ford seemed more offended that the naked men he saw were middle-aged and had pot bellies, but I don't see those attributes as valid objections to tell the truth.

    If you haven't been to Toronto Pride, this year is the one to go to since it's also the World Pride event and should be extra special.
