Would you watch reality TV about Atlanta activists?
Re: “Taking a peek into black gay Atlanta” (March 9)
"Instead of a reality TV show spotlighting gay people in Atlanta obsessed with their egos, their nightclubs, their bling, their Mercedes and their own self-adulating, lip-glossed fabulousness, how about a reality TV show about gay people in Atlanta who are working for nondiscrimination, who are working for marriage equality, who are serving in the military, who are serving the HIV/AIDS population, who are gentrifying and renovating the run-down neighborhoods, and oh, can’t forget, who are running the gay media? I’d be a lot more interested in that show."
"That’d be like doing a John Wayne war movie with emphasis on the Quartermaster Corps; very necessary and essential to supplying the troops but pretty damned boring."
Bedlam ‘Derelicte’ party: Offensive or too sensitive?
"The thing is, if you’re offended, don’t go. It’s a movie theme party. Homeless people don’t seem to be up in arms. Rednecks didn’t protest their redneck party. The fact is, if you’re looking to be offended you will never be disappointed."
"Do any of the offended people hang out at bars with homeless people or crack whores? I just imagine some sad person retorting, “But I have a homeless friend!” It’s just a party, damn it."
"La la la la la… I can’t hear you over my privilege!"
Memo to Macon bar owner: Gays make good customers
"Hope the bar doesn’t thrive. If you were smart you would know that most gays like to have fun, spend money and keep things peaceful. Those sound like assets to me."
"And the “straight” club’s owners are the gay owners of the former club. Can you say “sellout”?"
