There were several amazing speakers. One man who served in World War II, one man who served in the Korean War, several who served and were discharged under "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."
Melissa invited me to the rally. The straight, married girl inviting the single, gay boy to the GLBT rally. If all of us - - gay or straight - - were as passionate, caring, outspoken and active as Melissa is about GLBT issues, I can only imagine the tremendous progress we would make. She's truly one of a kind.
So, where do gay cabaret boys and straight cabaret girls dine after attending a GLBT rally? That's right, McDonald's. Or as Melissa pronounces it, "The MACdonald's."
It was my suggestion...
Yes, I know it's redneck of me, but their new Angus burgers are SO good. As my Daddy says, "They'll make your tongue slap your brains out!"
...but I was probably influenced by Melissa describing this video to me earlier in the week. It's a CNN report from Memphis a couple of years ago. The YouTube clip is titled, "When Transvestites Attack," but I prefer this comment left a few hours ago on the video's YouTube page...
"Queens 1, McDonald's 0"
