The Human Rights Campaign To Hold "Talking Queer Politics" Town Hall Meeting……..IN A BAR!

On Tuesday August 17th the Human Rights Campaign will be holding a Town Hall Meeting called “Talking Queer Politics with HRC’s National Field Director” in New York City. Now will this be held somewhere appropriate for an LGBT based political community meeting like, I don’t know perhaps New York City’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center?  Oh no,  not the HRC!  They’re holding their political action meeting to get you ready toy all ready for the election season with Marty Rouse, HRC’s National Field Director in a BAR!  And a trendy West Side bar at that called “THERAPY” no less.

Now why in the world would they hold a political venue meeting in a Bar might you ask?  Who knows?  Perhaps the A Lister’s at the HRC get nervous without instant access to a cocktail considering how badly they’ve fucked up on political issues and have sold us down the river with the Obama adminstration and have proved they have no backbone.   Or maybe they get to use THERAPY for FREE and the owner, manager, or one of the staff is involved with THERAPY and its a business boost for them bringing in all the thirsty fags?  Or maybe, just maybe, HRC is too cheasp to part with any of its millions and actually rent a hall and equiptment at the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center and in tuen actually support a worthwile place with gay money.

Which answer is right?  We’ll never know.  But this s is just another example in a long line of inappropriate fuck-ups from the uberly screwed up HRC. 

Thanks to Mike Petrelis of the Petrelis Files for the heads up and to quote Mike: 

“HRC! Worst! Gay! Org! Ever!”

I’ll drink to that!
