    if he was wearing black “underwear” as he claims, how could his buttocks be exposed? Or, was he wearing a black jockstrap? There is a difference.

  2. Chadd says

    People often think that all of California is like Los Angeles or San Francisco. Many parts of it are just as conservative as Utah or Oklahoma and San Diego is one of those parts. Remember that this is the state that PASSED Prop 8.

    because seeing an exposed buttock _______________ ?

    i don’t get it. having just witnessed a celebratory culture of drunken public vomiting and behaving like violent loons, yay st. pat’s, i’m puzzled as to why folks get so out of whack over pride nudity. it’s not as if pride celebrations are punctuated by violence and destruction of property. OMg! I saw an @ss!


  4. Armando says

    It’s a question of equal treatment. A couple of years ago people sued the LAPD for the different treatment of people having sex in the park, straight people got a warning, gay people got arrested. IF he had been convicted, he would have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life, this is worth fighting.

  5. anon says

    An arrest is not like being charged with a crime. Cops and other public officials have a lot of discretion. False arrest charges are mostly to prevent too many citizen arrests and they are brought by the police! (They don’t like the public making arrests). Judges aren’t going to be sympathetic.

  6. anon says

    I don’t understand the hoopla. Why not follow the local law? How hard is that? If the law in San Diego requires you to cover your buttocks, why not cover your buttocks? Why not actually wear black underwear beneath your leather flaps instead of a black thong? Is it that important to you to have your ass hanging out?

  7. dumbnhung says

    Pleeeeez we’re subjected to dozens of senior citizens waving their weenies at our annual pride. If you don’t like what you’re seeing avert your eyes!

  8. Michaelandfred says

    So “if” the wind blew his skirt up someone “might” see a flash of cheek? Do women know this is also the rule? No thongs and dresses/skirts on windy days.

  9. tsoltan says

    hmm.. if there’s a place I’d expect nudity, it’s at a pride celebration. I don’t like the “family-friendly” excuse some people are using to nudge queer people who want to let it all hang out of the festivities. At the dyke marches I’ve been to, there are always bare breasted women and I’ve never seen them being hassled (and they shouldn’t be). I’m glad this guy is fighting back for all of us.

  10. Doug says

    No true Scotsman would wear a black leather kilt‚ÄĒor underwear. Regimental all the way!

  11. Dan says

    Sorry, but a gladiator kilt is not entitled to equal protection. I seriously hope gays don’t start bringing dumb suits like this.

  12. Tyler says

    Racal/Sam/Uffda (aka Rick), we know you hate gay people. It’s a given. Stop trying to prove it.

  13. says

    a few years ago in the pride parade in toronto, we (PFLAG) were marching behind either the leatherTNT dudes or some fetish group. either way, we had constant view of bums for a few hours. nobody freaked out. my dad laughed, my mum posed with them.

    so to all the complainers – congrats, you’re less hip and liberated than many 60-something PFLAG parents.

    this year i’ll be wearing a mesh singlet. enjoy.

  14. Joseph Singer says

    @UFFDA: You really need to get over yourself. Your opinion isn’t nearly as important as you think it is.

  15. MIke says

    LOL, he actually sued the Gay Pride organizers?! I’d assume they’d be gay. BTW, you left out that part saying he only sued the city.

  16. MIke says

    Listen closely to the report next time: the Gay Pride organizers SPECIFICALLY wanted the police to arrest violators of a strict dress code they wanted ENFORCED because they wanted the parade to attract more families.

  17. Ken says

    This post I quote is incredibly rude. I only quote it so you know which one I am speaking of:

    “Walters has major…”

    I wanna see the pictures so I can make my own decision. What, exactly, constitutes black ‘underwear’? Also, go to any California beach and there are plenty of ass cheeks hanging out of thong bikinis, male and female. What’s the big deal? And, while I’m ranting, how is it that Carl’s Jr. ads are so “family friendly”??

  19. Anthony says

    What a deluded moron. What normal adult walks around in a get-up like that? He looks like a clown. And what in heaven’s name does dressing up in a
    DOG COLLAR have to do with being gay?

    Hopefully, in the future, spectators will feel empowered to boo people who degrade the meaning of gay pride. And hopefully, anyone who actually breaks the law will be prosecuted, and not just let go.

  20. enchantra says

    You know what? You’re a grown man, not a frat boy. This is Pride, not Mardi Gras. I do not now nor have I ever understood what it is about PRIDE that makes some gay people strip down and prance down the street yelling “Look at me! Look at me!”

    Go home.

  21. Derrick from Philly says

    He’s got the body for the outfit. So, why not. I bet some y’all b.tches wish you could wear that.

    I can’t stand Gay prudes.
