It's been interesting watching
the fallout over Adam Lambert's American Music Awards
performance. Lambert's fans declared him a trailblazer for his in-your-face
queer sexuality. The religious rightscreamed
foul over the man-on-man action taking place during prime-time network airtime.
My reaction? "Meh." I'd get worked up over Lambert if the song (and
his music in general) was worthy of all the attention. Strangely enough,
the take away from all this hoopla should be, when did pop culture's memory
become so short?
Anthony Woods, former CD-10 candidate and
LGBT civil rights
advocate will be flying in from DC to be Stonewall's keynote speaker
2010 Carnival fundraiser. Mr. Woods impressed media pundits and the
elite by inspiring a grassroots movement that motivated the online,
and youth communities across California. For a sample of Anthony's
story, click the youtube clip above for his Human Rights Campaign speech
during his 2009 campaign.
