No sane person watches this type of exhibitionist crap. The a-holes ruin other parades wanting to flaunt and promote their deviance, then claim a whole goddamned month to prance around and dominate media coverage. Everything always has to be about these predatory creeps.

You're so enraptured by all things (male) homosexual you can't even see straight, you stu pid, old bigot.

Go rail about the drunken and sexual excess of str8 college students on spring break or about Mardi Gras or about Carnivale or about St. Paddy's Day. Then we'll maybe know you don't just have a jones for all things homosexual.

I was at the parade (It was great!). Both Mike Michaud - the gay out candidate and Eliot Cutler the independent candidate marched in the parade. Eliot has been a fighter for gay rights and marriage equality for many years. As you might guess the mostly unpopular Republican governor declined his invitation.

They were joined in the parade by many organizations, churches and businesses in support of equality for all. Thousands of people came to watch and cheer their support for family, friends, co-workers and others from the LBGT community.

It was a very good day in Portland!

I was a little confused by the paper editorializing that Michaud came out "reluctantly." Yes, I know he was highly visible in Maine politics for many years before announcing his sexuality to the press. But he was also a visible advocate for the gay rights movement during all of those years. He wasn't forced out of the closet by some threat to out him--say, a disgruntled luggage lifter. He realized the visibility of a gubernatorial run would shine a light on all aspects of his life, so he decided to make this announcement.

As far as I can see, Maine responded with a collective shrug. Probably because everyone who cared already knew.

That's what happens to people who try and pray away the gay. They are told part of their conversion therapy is to visit gay groups and harass the gays. You can tell when he has slipped up and went looking for dick, he shows up here and takes his failure out on you.

KKKristians should not only not be allowed to vote they also should not be allowed to run for public office. You can not trust KKKristians with a Constitutional Republic because the first thing they start to do is pass KKKristian laws so as to establish Christianity via the back door. Since they can't make KKKrist-insanity the official religion of the United States, they just continue to pass law after law against the peaceful activities of consenting adults and sneak it in on us via the salami treatment, one slice at a time.

Kook, it's unclear whether you are referring to all Christians or just to the theocratic subset.

That's because your mind is so occluded. You can't express anything that begins to be comprehensible.

Hey troll, your phony name and location are from a country that has more gay rights than America. You really are a dummy.

If this continues the national motto will have to be changed to, "America - Land Of The Enslaved and Home Of The Gay Pervert."

You can save our nation from such a fate by leaving the country.
