Gay Pride Event Bans Drag Queen Outfits Because It Offends The Transgendered
Poor drag queens. They're banned from performing because some transgendered folks might feel "uncomfortable."
So let me see if I have this straight. Cross-dressing gay men who don't self-identify as transgendered, but like to dress up and sing and dance as women are banned from this event.
But transgendered men who like to cross dress, put on heels and make up and glittery gowns and sing and dance are welcome.
That's a head-scratcher. I guess Conchita Wurst won't be welcome. Maybe if he shaves off his beard?
It will be interesting to watch the internecine warfare in the LGBTQXYZ community as they battle amongst themselves over which perversions are politically correct and which are "transphobic" and prejudiced.
Read this bit from the article. It's good for a laugh:
Free Pride Glasgow justified its decision [to ban drag queens] in a Monday Facebook post, saying they were deliberately choosing to desires of transgender women more than others.
“Our event aims to represent those underrepresented in our community, including but not limited to trans and non-binary people, women, People of colour, intersex people, asexual people and people with disabilities,” the post said. “As such we have decided to prioritise the needs of trans women to feel safe and included in our event.”
The decision earned a rebuke from the main Glasgow Pride event.
“Pride Glasgow believes that any community group should be given their place to flourish but that success should not be built on the negativity and ignorance towards other events, groups and like minded people and we are saddened to see that this is the direction that Free Pride has chosen to take.”Well...as they say...all perversions are equal, but some are more equal than others. And we wouldn't want Caitlyn Jenner not to "feel safe and included" if he went to Pride Glasgow.
