Last week, a group of 50 professional black gay males released a self policing letter aimed at heightening introspective action amongst themselves in regards to AIDS. They couldn't resist however taking an ironic swipe at the gay powers that be for pushing "marriage equality". The letter authors wrote that unfortunately they might not be around to enjoy such rights unless they took responsibility for the outcome of the AIDS crisis facing so many black homosexual men.
Black gay leaders like Earl Fowlkes openly complained about the facade of the one big happy rainbow family. "Truth be told, it's not that way." White organizations like the donor rich Human Rights Campaign decided they knew what black folks liked. Just throw them a gospel concert bone. In 2002, HRC launched its "Gospel and Soul" Concert a churchified attempt to get black folks lined up with the gay agenda. It didnt work.
I can't help but point out something I came across [a story within a story?] which was mentioned in the New York Blade article. Exgaywatch, a gay gossip blog, trotted out one of its new reporters to rip apart the Washington Times for "misquoting" the Gay and Lesbian Atlas. Here's the problem. The Blade used the exact same figures in its article. Compare the two:
Washington Timesupdate: ooops, exgaywatch has "revised" its original post.
Roughly 4 million homosexual adults live in the U.S., according to the Gay and Lesbian Atlas, compiled by the Urban Institute in the District. Among them are large groups of Hispanics and blacks. In Los Angeles, for example, the atlas says Hispanics lead 32 percent of all same-sex households.
