NARTH’s annual convention of closeted gays and open fascists takes place in Phoenix this weekend where they’ll be joined by Family Research Council spokesbigot Peter Sprigg. Last year gay activists had a blast picketing outside of the NARTH convention in Philadelphia as we marched around with pink luggage in mockery of FRC co-founder George Rekers’ exposure as a patron of young, lithe, Latino male prostitutes. I especially enjoyed chasing a few of NARTH’s douchebags out to their cars as they sputtered and flitted their dainty “ex-gay” paws at my homofascist camera.
RELATED: After Rekers was exposed as a fan of erotic nude male massage, his name vanished from FRC’s website as Tony Perkins pretended to have no memory of the man who co-founded his organization.
TAKE ACTION: There will be a local counter-protest of NARTH’s convention this weekend.
Over the course of two days during the NARTH convention, a collective of organizations and individuals — including No Longer Silent: Clergy for Justice, Human & Equal Rights Organizers (H.E.R.O.), and Parents, Families & Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) of Phoenix — will host press conferences, presentations, protests, and discussions during an “alternative convention” at the Phoenix Airport Marriott Hotel – the same venue as the NARTH convention
