Missouri Town Officials Can’t Stop Posting Outdated Homophobic Drivel

Well, stop the presses, there’s a homophobic politician in Missouri ranting about queers on Facebook. Will wonders never cease.

This time it’s St. Robert City Councilman Allan Johannsen, and he’s ticking off all the boxes for “ignorant bigot.” Among his greatest Facebook hits: “I think queers need to stop trying to recruit more perverts this sick mental illness is not any better than child molesters,” and, “Why don’t you guys act right and find a nice woman instead of a person of the same sex.”

Good one, Al. That’s so creative.

Allan’s rants were triggered by some activism by the publisher of the local newspaper, the Pulaski County Daily News. Publisher Darrell Todd Maurina (pictured) is upset that there’s going to be a drag show at the local community center and wants it moved to someplace else, because there are “athletic fields next door.”

Uh, okay dude. Not sure what the proximity of an athletic field has to do with anything — are you worried that if a drag queen stands too close to a football field it turns into a discotheque?

Just for some context, here’s the kind of debauchery he’s worried about:

Yup, a drag queen calmly adjusting her hair and saying, “hi.” If there’s anything to object to here, it’s a white person wearing fake dreadlocks — eek, cultural appropriation.

The video does get a little off-color when she encounters a cute boy in the audience: “Look how cute he is! Don’t you want to put it in his butt?” Oh no, a joke about anal sex, nobody has ever done such a thing within earshot of an athletic field!

Maurina’s been making a name for himself with homophobia for years, and you can find some more unpleasant Facebook posts from him here, and also get a closer look at his profile pic.

What is it about homophobes that they all look like they’re waiting for a mug shot to be taken for doing something naughty in a men’s room?

Watch A Rainbow Flag Drift Through Outer Space And Spread Homosexuality Across The Universe

by Graham Gremore September 28, 2016

Prepare to be absolutely mesmerized. Because space is gay, ya’ll. The good folks over at Planting Peace, the same group who created the rainbow-colored Equality House directly across the street from the Westboro Baptist Church, attached a rainbow flag to a high-altitude balloon and sent it way, way up into the atmosphere.

Jonathan Groff Is Virtually Indistinguishable From His Character On HBO’s “Looking”

by Dan Tracer September 28, 2016

  This job has changed my life in so many ways. I’ve never played a character that hit so close to the bone. It felt like an extension of myself taking place in the present. Trying to figure out what it means to be gay. Patrick and I are from the same generation of gay [...]

by Tim Winfred September 28, 2016

Yeah, we know most people aren’t the biggest fan of RuPaul‘s Drag Race season 2 winner Tyra Sanchez – she was controversial during her time on the show, and her post-show career hasn’t been a smooth ride either. Nevertheless, her new track Vogue is seriously hot, and worth a listen. The song’s beat is reminiscent of [...]
