“Let’s go for more speech, not less. Let Donohue march under his Straight is Great; banner if he truly wants. I mean, straights are great, even if gays are great too, right? Or as Pride Director David Studinski, put, ‘Straight is great — as long as there’s no hate.’ And let me march under a banner right in front of Donohue’s contingent, saying, ‘Bill Donohue is the Biggest Blowhard on the Face of Planet Earth.’ I’m even happy to amend that banner to say, ‘Gays Who Believe that Bill Donohue is the Biggest Blowhard on the Planet Earth.’ I’m sure I’ll have a sizable contingent. And OK, if that’s not cool, then those of us who are Catholic and gay should simply march alongside Donohue, as part of the ‘league,’ with signs that say ‘Gay, Catholic and Proud.’ [snip] The very first thing we all need to do today is thank the LGBT Pride
committee in New York City for letting Bill Donohue march in the parade.
And the second thing we all need to do, later on in the day, is buy
ourselves or someone else a cold Guinness.” – Michelangelo Signorile, writing for the Huffington Post.
