Obama Set To Fundraise At New York Gay Marriage Celebration This Week

Even though President Barack Obama has not “evolved” enough already to give his full and personal support to same sex marriage.  That won’t be stopping him from attending a fundraiser celebrating the passage of gay marriage in New York this Wednesday. 

For those of you who might not remember the President attended a New York City gay fundraiser in June as lawmakers deliberated the marriage bill but he did not endorse its passage.

This soiree scheduled to take place at the Midtown Sheraton, with a plate range from $10,000 to $35,800 each is being billed as a “small reception to celebrate the progress in the LGBT community,”

Event organizers include designer Michael Smith, Marie Claire fashion director Nina Garcia, Be the Change CEO Kevin Jennings,  Pfizer communications chief Sally Susman, and DNC committee treasurer Andrew Tobias among others.

Julianne Moore Stars In The Human Rights Campaign New York Marriage Equlaity Ads – PSA Or Fundraising Attempt? (Video)

Julianne Moore is the first to appear in a new set of HRC ads intended to lobby public support for the issue called The Campaign for New York Marriage.  The ads will begin making a direct appeal to ordinary voters in a series of commercials featuring Hollywood actors, fashion designers and civic leaders including Moore, The Reverand Al Sharpton,  Kevin Bacon, Whoopi Goldberg, Fran Drescher, Tom Colicchio, the chef, and Jeanne Moutoussamy-Ashe, the widow of Arthur Ashe.

The ads are the work of Brian Ellner, of the Human Rights Campaign a former Bloomberg administration official and a one-time Democratic candidate for Manhattan borough president

“The timing of commercials is deliberate, and revealing: With the front-runner in the governor’s race, Andrew M. Cuomo, the Democratic attorney general, pledging his support for same-sex marriage, and the Legislature in Democratic hands, advocates are pushing for a new vote early next year. ‘We want to build excitement and momentum in advance of that,’ said Ellner…As part of that strategy, the Human Rights Campaign and its allies are spending heavily to oust three New York state senators — all Democrats — who voted against the marriage bill last year and who face opponents in the primary on Tuesday: William Stachowski of Buffalo, Shirley L. Huntley of Queens and Rubén Díaz Sr. of the Bronx.” – The New York Times

Now personally,  I love Julianne Moore and I applaud her and the others New York notables for making these ads. But after viewing the first one its very lo, and very lackluster.   The words “gay and lesbian” are never used nor are there any pictures of couples (gay or straight) in the ad.   One of the biggest mistakes that  “No on 8” made in California was not featuring happy gay families (as Maine’s almost and Washington’s successful campaigns did). Showing the voters who we are actually does make a big difference. 

Also the ad doesn’t touch on the problems both legal and financial that lesbian and gay couples face because of marriage inequality, and strangely calls for no direct action such as calling the New York State Senate or voting for pro LGBT rights candidates.

But leave it to HRC the one thin that the ad DOES contain which is the last two words.  “Please donate”

Homo Say What? – Sterling, Virginia District Supervisor Eugene "Delusional" Delgaudio

“Frankly if you really do support the radical Homosexual Agenda — or if you just no longer care enough to stand up for the family — insiders in Congress say the entire Homosexual Agenda could pass in a matter of months. Special job rights for homosexuals and lesbians. Businesses may have to adopt hiring quotas to protect themselves from lawsuits. Every homosexual fired or not hired becomes a potential federal civil rights lawsuit.. 

Radical homosexuals will terrorize day care centers, hospitals, churches and private schools. Traditional moral values will be shattered by federal law. Same-sex marriages and adoptions. Wedding-gown clad men smooching before some left-wing clergy or state official is just the beginning. You’ll see men hand-in-hand skipping down to adoption centers to ‘pick out’ a little boy for themselves.  Homosexual advocacy in schools. Your children or grandchildren will be taught homosexuality is moral, natural and good. High school children will learn perverted sex acts as part of “safe sex” education. With condoms already handed out in many schools, Radical Homosexuals will have little trouble adopting today’s “if it feels good do it” sex-ed curriculum to their agenda. And to add insult to injury, lobbyists for the Homosexual Agenda are paid off with your tax dollars! That’s right, radical homosexual groups like the Gay-Lesbian Task Force and ACT-UP receive millions from the government.” –  Sterling, Virginia District Supervisor Eugene Delgaudio, in a bizarre, lie-filled fundraising letter to constituents.

(God what an UGLY fucker.  Inside and out!)

Now you have to just love the opening paragraph where he admits if it were not for the active hatemongers the rest of the world would accept us.

The people of Loudon County unless it’s extremely KKKristan should march to his castle with torches and pitchforks because this man is such a monster.

Oh and Eugene the only “daycare” I have ever terrorized was Uncle Charlies Downtown in the late 1980’s and i assure you the twinks loved it.  Besides you ugly fucking troll get it right.  The Roman Catholic church has had had daycare terrorization covered for centuries.

Back2Stonewall Gay Wear – Retro Wear NYC MINESHAFT Tee Shirts For Sale – Available Now!

It was called the Mineshaft. It was the most famous gay bar and sex club in the world. Hidden among the warehouses of Greenwich Village’s meatpacking district, it became a symbol of the sexual revolution that exploded during the freewheeling seventies.

For nearly a decade, men in denim and leather came from all over the world to visit this theatre of sexual excess, where their most secret sexual fantasies could be brought to life in the sex-on-premises scenes that were played out night after night within its gritty, grimy walls.

Located on Washington St. at Little W. 12th St., (Now a Chinese Restaurant) it was open around the clock from Wednesday night through Monday morning, featuring a roof deck, clothes check, theme rooms, dungeons and other amenities. Opened in 1977 before the AIDS era, and  closed  in 1985.
 
Most if not all of the original memorabilia is gone. So I created these tee-shirts
 
For good or bad The Mineshaft will always be a part of the Gay Sexual Revolution History of the late 70’s and a memory that must be carried on.
 

*All proceeds from the sales of these tee shirts and other items are going to help me raise moneyfor activist activities and  to go to Washington and lobby Congress with a REAL gay mans perspective and not the HRC’s namby pamby one.  (I also plan on visiting Solmonese and give him a piece of my mind!)
