The Laramie Project

Matthew Shepard, a homosexual college boy from the University of Wyoming, with passion for social sciences, was brutally tortured at a very isolated place by two anti-gay bigots. One of those bigots later revealed in court that apparently the main reason why they severely beat him and tied him up to a fence at that place was because Matt was reaching for his dick.

Barack Obama and his gay controversies are not a big deal

 

Evangelical megapastor Rick Warren is going to give the inaugural invocation of President-elect Barack Obama. That enraged the gay society in the United States. Meanwhile he has started to consider appointing Bill White, president of the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum in New York and the first openly gay chief of a military branch, as Navy Secretary. Jessica Bennett and Daniel Stone from Newsweek kindly gave us that information as concisely as possible.
