This is terrible.

It's a shame that some church groups don't take over organizing the parade.

Well , the place HAS been called "War Sore".



I prefer the approach of "The March for Equality". It needs no permit and can be run like a flashmob. I hope that they've rented space in one of the parks, though.

There's nothing that can be done about a random group of people walking down the sidewalks carrying colored balloons.

If they could afford a few uniformed security guards for an hour to walk them to the park, that would quash any accusations about not being secure or lack of due diligence.

Daxx should spring for the guards and the park rental through someone unfamiliar to the own clowns.

Support Queer Wausau! But tell them to fight SMART, not hard.

This is SO sad. Growing up gay in Tomahawk was EXTREMELY difficult for me. I think it is time you Northern Wisconsinites get with the rest of the world and understand that being gay is NOT wrong - People are BORN GAY and as some of you bible thumpers like to say that God does not make mistakes - and he did NOT make a mistake making me GAY. You are more worried about your frickin GUN rights than the HUMAN RIGHTS of your friends, family and neighbors. The attitudes displayed here by the Wausau City Counsel Member make me SICK and are THE MAIN reason I don't live there anymore or even visit my MUCH LOVED family more often. Wausau and Northern Wisconsin should be ashamed!

Wow- I worked in the Wausau area several years ago. I always thought, judging from the heavy action at their rest stops (they call them "waysides" there), the place would have a huge gay population! I guess that's why they only come out at night!

Any environment that forces closets, produces such places and behaviors. Remove the need for closeting and the interactions normalize.

I get that now! What seemed so cool then was a sad product of the conflicting attitude of the larger area. Some of those good times don't look so good in that light-
