Speaking of 70's gay activism

The clip of Anita Bryant in the "Milk" trailer got me digging, and I found this awesome clip of gays protesting her anti-gay crusade in the 70's. By throwing a pie in her face.

You have to admit, once upon a time the gays did their protesting with panache.

And if you don't know who Anita Bryant is or her significance to the gay rights movement then shame on you. And click here.

"Four self-proclaimed homosexuals from Minneapolis interrupted the proceedings..."

Oh, and in the "Karma's a Bitch" department (currently represented by spokesmodel Sarah Palin, who cut programs for disabled children and pregnant teens), one of Bryant's sons turned out gay. Allegedly.

Sometimes I can just tell that God has an awesome sense of humor. And He/She loves the gay.

OK, as hideous a person as she was, she did make me laugh with " least its a fruit pie..."

Bryant probably could have had a reasonably successful second musical career playing to gay audiences. Instead she decided to be an insufferably hateful bitch who can't even get a gig in Branson. HA HA!
