Hate Group Opens Meeting With….Flag Dancing [VIDEO]

Raw Story reports:

MassResistance, a notorious anti-LGBT group based in Massachusetts, recently opened up a conference with the curious decision to have a man perform an interpretive dance while holding two rainbow-colored flags.

Media Matters reports that the group, which held a conference in Texas earlier this month with the goal of “Countering the LGBT Agenda,” had a man holding two rainbow flags come on stage to dance while waving them around.

  • Boreal

    Seems pretty gay.

    • kaydenpat

      LOL? Ya think?

    • olandp

      So, so gay!

    • paganguy

      I dunno… maybe if he’d made his entrance riding a unicorn down a rainbow carpet. THAT would have looked gay.

      • David L. Caster

        Come in on a litter carried by 4 large scantily clad muscleman in bondagewear. Now that would have been gay.

        • Joseph Miceli

          I really miss Judy Tenuta… not for her singing skills, though. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hliW07PD1zk

          • David Walker

            It could happen.

          • Jonathan Smith

            but WHY does it NOT happen to me!!!!!!!!!

          • sfmike64

            Funny story. Was walking down Market St in SF about 8 years ago past Cafe Flore. There was a poster on a light pole that said “JUDY TENUTA ! TONIGHT!”

            And I said to the huzz, “Judy Tenuta, whatever happened to her?”

            And I hear THAT VOICE say “I’M RIGHT HERE, PIG!”

            I literally bowed in reverence to her and her comic timing. 🙂 She was very nice. 🙂

    • Richard, another Canuck

      Gay, Gay, Gay…

    • Liberace gay!

    • OliveYurdic

      Oooh girl, her anti-gay hate ain’t gonna hold her artistic side in the closet.

    • Dayglo

      They edited out the part where he sits on a traffic cone.

      • JCF

        What is this? ^ I see Madeline Kahn, Tim Curry, is that Lesley Anne Warren…and???

        • jerry

          • Danieruw

            The singing telegram girl (Jane Weidlin of the Go-Go’s) just rang the doorbell.

  • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

    Rainbow colored hearts flag dance to lyrics, “Love keeps no record of wrongs”? Was the group infiltrated and this was a subversive dance? I hope it was, because the dancer was adorable and danced with joy, so I hope he’s not really a self-hating tortured soul at heart.

  • AC

    now, they’re just trolling

    • Lizard

      They should really stick to straight hating. Trolling isn’t working out.

    • Gustav2

      They making flag dancing butch!


    • StraightGrandmother

      OMG, I laughed so hard at your comment.

  • Treant

    No homo.

    I said no homo! Damn it, that means it’s totally not gay!

  • Boreal

    That gurl has seen many a backroom glory hole. She flits like box of birds.

    • Tread

  • another_steve

    Hate turns you insane.

  • Lakeview Bob

    Queerest thing I have seen in a long time. Nice ass man.

    • Jeffrey

      I did think that

  • crewman

    A frumpy man dressed in business attire performing a very awkward flag dance says a lot about them. It entirely misses the point of the celebration of freedom that dance represents. They see that dance and cringe at the thought of happy gay people, but secretly they are envious of our happiness and freedom. If they weren’t, they wouldn’t copy us.

  • JoeMyGod

    Eldergays will remember when fan dancing segued into flag dancing sometime in the early 80s. The flags were much easier to transport to the clubs and certainly posed less danger to passersby. Interestingly, I’ve seen a small resurgence in fans in recent years.

    • paganguy

      Because in a hot, steamy club, fans are both functional and attractive.

      • Tread

        But annoying as fuck when all you hear is the damn “clack, clack, clack” to the beat of the bass.

      • CanuckDon

        And you’re likely not going to hit the others around you with it.

        • paganguy

          Well no, that would be terribly ill-mannered.

        • JoeMyGod

          Somehow I never got speared with a fan but I’ve been clocked a few times by the little washers that serve as weights in the flags.

          • CanuckDon

            Knock out someone’s contact lens if they’re not careful.

          • David L. Caster

            Flags are better weighted with curtain shot cord in the corners.

    • Rocco

      Always loved the fans…they made me feel part of the tribe.

    • KCMC

      Forget the Denver club in that era. Just out, pumping music, sweaty shirtless leatherman fan dancing into near flight.
      Was breathtaking.

    • It’s people who did flag corps in high school. It looks great at parades but takes a lot of practice. This loser up front, not so much.

    • Joe in PA

      Eldergay??? For remembering something from the 80s?

      Well! Harrrruuummmppphhh. I never.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    We hate the homos! But damm some of their stuff is fun AF!

    Maybe the sex is too ???

    • kaydenpat

      Maybe? I’m sure these guys know the answer to that question.

  • Jefe5084
  • Lane

    And by “notorious”, we mean “hilarious”. We definitely got marriage equality faster in Massachusetts because of these guys.

    • kaboobie

      I’m reminded of a joke Jimmy Tingle used to make about William Weld: “In Massachusetts, even our Republican Governor is a liberal Democrat.” And even the homophobes are gay.

    • Rocco

      As it should be done…

      • Butch

        Hmmmm…..much as I usually do everything in my power to avoid cities, I may have to visit this festival.

        • Rocco

          It should not be missed…not many things like it. It’s an experience that will not leave you.

          • David L. Caster

            I second that emotion. Almost a required pilgrimage for the faithful.

    • Lizard

      Damn they’re good!

      • Jonathan Smith

        I’m sorry, were there flags involved?

        • Todd20036

          Yeah, they were cute!

    • Treant

      Come on, studs, move those sausage-packers! Oh, yeah, there seems to be a female there, too. Possibly two.

    • Todd20036

      When you have people who are proud of who they are and have fun doing it, this is what you get.

    • Ore Carmi

      They actually look good.

  • CanuckDon

    This is what happens when you get rid of all the gay bars. The closet cases have to find alternative ways to show off their flag dancing skills.

  • Rocco

    Way gay, no getting around that…

  • romanhans

    Who was the follow-up act, Wayland and Madame?

  • kaydenpat

    Well, that’s ….. special.

  • kanehau

    I just watched it with no sound on … that was just totally gay.

  • HZ81

    The Ted Haggart Dance Ensemble?

  • Jim


  • FAEN

    Yeah that’s not gay AT ALL! 😏

    I agree with Lakeview Bob-nice ass.

  • Gene Perry

    Satire maybe? I’m confused.

  • Bluto

    The only way that could of been gayer is if he was shooting glitter out of his asshole.

    Here’s an interesting 2011 interview with one of San Francisco’s most well-known flaggers. I watched him many, many times in the late 90s.

  • Jeffrey

    Oh. Ma god. That was intensely gay. Like lube up Liza Minelli and shove her up Paul Lyde’s asshole while Waylon Flowers works Madame from under a piano gay.

    • Bj Lincoln

      Thank you! I almost choked on my coffee.

  • Tread

    These idiots have lost the plot. Oh well, at least some of them are on the verge or coming back to reality.

  • The_Wretched

    Um, I guess he is delivert.

  • Jonathan Smith
  • Lizard

    So…they’ll fight the “LGBT agenda” by doing one of the gayest-looking activities known to man?


  • ikahana

    Were they unable to afford a Carol Channing impersonator?

  • Phil Touchette

    Someone needs to go up to her and say “girl, the Pride Festival is in Hall B, not Hall C.”

    • Rocco


  • Lumpy Gaga


    • Todd20036

      Yup, but with using flags to insult LBGTs rather than makeup to insult blacks.
      The biggest difference is that they wound up looking gay from their stupid dance – and desperate to come out about it.

    • edrex

      but can you do the flag dance with a straightface?

  • Frostbite

    It was gay back then, yep, still gay now.

  • Friday’s_cat

    MassResistance got trolled?
    The group name sounds like they’re against pedophile priests.

  • Dreaming Vertebrate

    OT: Here’s a good reason to wave some flags. Mugabe has, at long last, resigned.

  • Todd20036

    I think they were trying to “reclaim” the rainbow by saying that even straight guys can dance with it and not be gay.
    And I think they are also trying to “contaminate” the rainbow image to the point that we would no longer want to use it.
    All they managed to do was to look like a bunch of closeted queers, which is pretty much what they are.

    • Bj Lincoln

      Nah. He’s not good enough at it for it to be the gayest thing ever.

      Still pretty gay though.

  • Baltimatt

    Rather tepid applause, wouldn’t you say?

    • KCMC

      Not turgid. At. All.

    • Lizard

      I went to a “Christian dance ministry” performance once to support a friend. Most of the applause was the same…you know you’re supposed to clap, but you’re mostly too confused to really try.

      • BobSF_94117

        What would you expect to hear from the sound of one hand clapping?

        • edrex

          the other hand fapping?

      They should have invited Wes Goodman.

        They did. And he’s there.

      Nothing really, just some freeloading evangelical twat protesting the gay agenda.

  • About 20 years ago or so I saw this “praise dancing” thing at my parents’ Baptist church. It was clear that it was the people who did flag and drill team and high school and weren’t ready to give that up. (And why should they. As silly as it was in a church service, they did it well.)

    Apparently MassResistance is code for a failed Reparative Therapy group.

    From the headline, I thought this was going to be a gay parody or protest using our beloved flag dancing; however there is an enthusiasm I applaud in his performance. The irony is that it’s so dang gay and he doesn’t even realize it. The other side of the debate is that we can’t let them take everything away from us. Some things should be kept sacred.

    this is the queerest shit I think i’ve ever seen….outside of Folsom…..

  • StraightGrandmother

    Dunno, but it seem like he got a little sugar in him.

  • StraightGrandmother

    Actually I enjoyed it but felt it was very odd that he was wearing a button down shirt & rather tight dress slacks.
    It would have been better if he was wearing a leotard.

  • StraightGrandmother

    Now you know who started Mass Resistance Texas branch, right?
    C’mon you know this.
    Your friend and mine Robert Oscar Lopez.
    The Mass Resistance event took place in Texas so maybe ROL selected this entertainment?
    It would make sense, right?
    First ROL was gay, then when we came to know him he claomed to be bi-sexual, now that he is teaching at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary he claims to be no longer bi-sexual now he is straight.
    Hmmm… but still the flag dancing we just saw, yeah that would be entertainment a straight man would select right?

    Apparently there is a thing in some pentecostal/evangelical circles for worship dancing with flags. There is even a YouTube channel devoted to it. Odd doesn’t really begin to describe it. yet that makes this no less odd.

  • Gerry Fisher

    Maybe I don’t have a good read on this, but you’ve got to have a special kind of stubbornness to be part of a hate group based on super-blue Massachusetts.

  • hdtex

    The song is by a Christian singer named Matthew West, who seems to do some very catchy Jesus music, the kind that sounds like a soundtrack for a night of sexxxy romance with the Messiah. We do not know whether or not West signed off on having his music used for this, which we can only describe as “color-guarding away the gay.” It works, though. Obviously.
