Call for help

I’m sharing this in hopes that someone out there might have some information that will help solve this.

Upon leaving our Bay of Pigs event at 535 York Street, San Francisco
at approximately 2:00am Sunday morning July 27th, one of our patrons
was brutally attacked and stabbed repeatedly. He was walking west on
Mariposa, when he was jumped by a group of three Asian men
walking east on Mariposa. The men were apparently speaking Chinese, and
they were accompanied by three Asian women. We believe the attack was a
hate crime. Luckily, he returned to the venue where our medical and
security teams were able to rush him to the hospital. He is in stable

We are writing to see if you or anyone you know has any information that
may lead us to the attackers. If so, please contact Inspector Brian
Danker – SFPD at 415.553.9256. Folsom Street Events cares deeply about
the health and well-being of our community members. Please help us to
look out for one another and help us bring closure to this dreadful incident.

Acceptance or Phobes

Friday, February 29th, 2008 | Gay Stuff | Comments Off on Acceptance or Phobes

Ok.. So maybe I’m being too sensitive.. but i’ve seen a couple of things in the media lately that have really bugged me.. The first is this video floating around by Jimmy Kimmel as a response to the I f-ed Matt Damon video that his lady did (I’m not gonna link to it but just search YouTube and you’ll find it). So I know its intended to be funny and they’ll say they didn’t mean anything by it.. But to me it came across an awful lot like white actors doing black face back in the day.

The other case was on Make me a Supermodel (I’ve gotten sucked into it by Kevin – kind of like watching a train wreck..). Last night there was a scene where one of the guys decided to start calling two of the other guys on the show gay and women. There is a lot of back story that makes it not entirely surprising that it happened – this guy seemed to be having his masculinity threatened by some of the modeling stuff and having his gay roommate hitting on him. But regardless the producers and editors found it an interesting thing to show but kind of presented it in a ‘well thats not cool but its no big deal’ kind of way which I thought was shitty. It really rung awful similar to people calling us ‘fag’ in high school and then brushing it off…

It just feels some times like because we’ve gotten some more acceptance in the media we’ve also made it OK to parody but they haven’t quite figured out when parody is actually funny and when its just obnoxious…

Anyway – I’m probably just being silly but it bugged me…
