Wilderace...I think you are wrong. It will happen in my lifetime. It's happening now. Thousands of gay couples are being married in California as we speak. Other states will follow. Just wait until my generation takes over this country. It's inevitable.

Interesting statistics bullchip...but if you want to be taken seriously by anyone with a decent education, you should probably provide your sources. You don't expect us to just take your word for it, do you?
After all...I could go out today and tell a hundred people that according to some study I read in a magazine, or heard about on TV, 9 out of 10 gay people now have AIDS. If even a portion of them were naive enough believe it, they would tell other people, who would then tell other people and so on and so forth. Pretty soon, thousands of gullible people would think that the vast majority of homosexuals have AIDS...even though I totally made it up. If a million people believe in a lie...it's still a lie.
So give us your sources. I would like to see studies, and statistics from reputable, unbiased sources. Give us web pages...give us court cases...give us legal documents...proving that the things you accuse the gay community of are true.

Rocco, wilderace, bullchip...you all should seriously do some research before you go spouting off about things you clearly know nothing about.
This is how your posts come across: "I hate gay people because what they do is icky, and I heard this...blah blah blah! "
You sound like a bunch of catty teenage girls...sitting in the lunch room and making fun of people for not making the cheerleading squad.
You've suggested that AIDS is a gay disease...that gay people/organizations are corrupt...that gay people are out to take people's money and recruit young children...and that gay people are mentally ill. I would like to see the statistics and documented cases that support these "facts."
Seriously, educate me. Help me see the light. Post some unbiased studies that will help me understand your point of view.

"Until 1974 homosexuality was considered a mental disorder by the American Psychiatric Association."
I couldn't have said it better myself. The key word is "until." In other words the American Psychiatric Association realized that homosexuality was NOT a mental disorder.
Bull chip, using your logic, one might as well say that it is ok to burn witches...because people thought it was fine to do so in Massachusetts until 1693.

I agree with Chris. It can be very easy to believe in conspiracies...especially after reading some of the more hateful comments left on this thread. I do not think that vindy.com is part of some anti-gay conspiracy.
The Vindicator and Tribune are usually very good about covering Oakland events...but neither of them did an article on Fundraising is a Drag this year. It really surprised me because this was our fifth year hosting the event. As I've mentioned before, we've raised a lot of money for local charities...and this year we hosted downtown Youngstown's first drag pageant. The event sold out. It was kind of a big deal. I thought it would have received more coverage.

I've received a few emails from Mark Sweetwood myself. The Vindicator did publish the following in the "Go&Do" listing on June 14th:
"The Oakland's Next Top Drag Queen, 7-10 p.m., Oakland Center for the Arts, 220 W. Boardman St., Youngstown; (330) 746-0404."
I apologize for saying that the Vindicator did not give us a blurb. I must have missed it because it didn't go out until the day of the event.
