Carolyn Maloney, a blonde white woman. Rep. John Lewis, a smiling middle aged Black man. Rep. Edolphus Towns, a middle aged Black man. Rep. Lynn Woolsey, an older white woman. Rep. Barbara Lee, a middle aged Black woman. Rep. Raul Grijalva, an older Latino, Rep. Keith Ellison a relatively young Black man, Rep. Bob Filner, a middle aged white man and Rep. Tammy Baldwin, a middle aged white woman.]
We name the 11 most pro-gay U.S. representatives. Read more about their great LGBT records.
Last week, we named 7 most anti-gay Republicans.
Please note how many of them are People of Color…
If I have to hear one more white queer person going on about “minority communities being inherently more homophobic than white communities” I’m going to…I don’t know what I’ll do, but it’ll probably be highly amusing and slightly illegal.
and PS: the 7 most anti-gay republicans? ALL WHITE.
This post is like one big “fuck you” to Dan Savage. I love it.
