Let's get this clear:
Gays are not a persecuted minority in this country. When you are stereotyped for enjoying Broadway show tunes, for having an innate talent for interior decorating, or for talking with a lisp that is NOT persecution.
Gays have never experienced slavery, Jim Crow, nor segregation. I'm amazed that blacks in this country are not more outraged at the way gays are trying to hijack the Civil Rights Movement led by Reverend King.
