PRIDE AND PROTEST ACROSS THE COUNTRY
From Seattle to New York, Pride Parade contingents
were fielded by Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender
and Queer folk and straight allies to protest the US war
abroad, racist profiling of Arabs, Muslims and
South Asians and attacks on civil liberties at home.
Warmly received, and joined by some onlookers,
the contingents proved that LGBTQ activism is
alive and well.

Michael's new video which uses parody to question

monogamous long term relationship.

in bold letters the color of the rainbow flag that

this hot Manhattan day is that I am Gay, Arab
and Very Nervous.
