    So allow me to not take you seriously after years of that.

    My wife works at a job were lots of men and women from the LGBTQ community work.

    We sometimes go out with them after work to bars they frequent.

    Other people will ask us if we know that those are "gay bars" and we say sure.

    We also say we like to dance, like to drink every once in awhile and enjoy the company.

    We don't see LGBTQ people we see friends, it is not a gay bar but a bar we go to.

    I see the picture on the news. Donít care much more beyond that to experience it in person. Iíve got family members that are gay that used to look forward to ĎPrideí. I think they are as turned off by it today as I am. But more power to ya!

    Depends on the topic, doesnít it? Iíd bet my positions on issues that matter like welfare and community reform are more liberal than most people on the board. But if it makes you feel better.......

    It's hard to take any straight person seriously because of this:

    That was a very thoughtful and intelligent response, I cannot argue a word you have said.

    But I can compliment you on the best damn name I've seen in a long time. Bravo, Dick Tornado, expect a friend request from me soon.

    I wonder, are there places we can send 'independents' like Vance, for conversion or reparative therapy, a sort of Exodus International for straights who fixate on homosexual imagery and acts? There is potentional for a lot profit to be made from setting up some camps and clinics.

    Re: What 'gay pride' is, and how it is manifested in the gay pride march.

    1. I join other members and guests in thanking the OP for his heartfelt comments.

    2. Many younger people are unaware of the horrific persecution of gays that was so common here in the Land of the Free.

    a. Here in Los Angeles in the 1960s, the police would brag about the thousands of gay men they entrapped every year.
    b. In New York City, the police would tell landlords to evict their gay tenants.

    etc. etc. etc.

    3. I have always admired Japan. Gay love has been a non-issue. People know that it exists, but no one says anything. Gays are happy to stay in the closet, and the government does not tell the police to hunt them down. Things are changing even there, I hear. There are now gay pride parades, and there is now a movement for gay marriage.
