'Porno' Pete LaBarbera is back again with funny photos of gays

Peter LaBarbera
Rabid anti-gay spokesman and hate group leader Peter LaBarbera has partly returned to the very thing which made him infamous - snapping pictures of gays and lesbians allegedly doing "naughty things" and posting them on his webpage as proof of the so-called gay agenda to harm children and corrupt values.

He hadn't done this in a while because of much deserved derision he received from all sides of the argument over gay equality (conservative and liberal) over his tendency to attend subcultural events such as leather festivals and take pictures of gays allegedly indulging in all sorts of lurid behaviors while ignoring the heterosexuals also in attendance.

Some folks have played armchair psychiatrists in their attempts to guess his motives behind such an obsession in gays and leather. And he was given the nickname of "Porno Pete."

So apparently LaBabera pulled back from this sort of thing for a while. Now, however, he has returned with a new bent. Supposedly, he attended Philadelphia’s Gay Pride Parade and “PrideDay”festival Sunday, June 10, 2012 and observed all sorts of interesting things there.

I should tell you, however, that the pictures - saving one - are relatively tame in comparison to the stuff LaBarbera used to publish. I  mean we are talking about a man who once published a close up photo of anal warts on someone's rear in an attempt to smear the gay community. But what makes it all funny are the captions LaBarbera uses in an attempt to make the photos seem more lurid than they really are.

For example:

Sadomasochist man in a gown of sorts marches along 7th Street in Philadelphia carrying "Leather Pride" black-and-blue flag. The man to his left is carrying a "Bear Pride" flag. "Bear" is slang for heavier, hairy homosexual men.

Sounds freaky, doesn't it? But check out the photo and ask yourself, does it really match the words:


It's a man in a homemade camouflage dress and while I doubt it would be a huge hit at the Oscars, it's hardly brings up images of whips, chains, and candle wax on the nipples.

And then there is what I like to call the bait and switch photo:


LaBabera says this about TLA:

PORN BOOTH - A banner at the booth for TLA, a distributor of homosexual pornographic videos, offers a "Gay Adult DVD" in its "TLAgaypack" goodie bag for PrideDay attendees.

I don't know the truth about what LaBarbera is claiming (it's interesting that he doesn't even take a picture of the so-called goodie bag), I do know that TLA sells other things besides pornographic movies. The company also sells mainstream movies and gay themed regular movies. 

What a pity that we don't know what was actually on TLA's table during the festival because LaBarbera didn't post any pictures of that either. How convenient.

LaBarbera may have actually struck some type of gold with this next photo:


He said the following:

Go-go boys grind to the music on a float in the Philly homosexual "Pride" parade. Young children both participated in the same parade and watched it from the side streets.

A photo taken of two men dancing can reveal a lot of things, but then it can also give a pretty false image. I don't see anything wrong with it, but I find it interesting that LaBarbera was so shocked by these men dancing that he chose to post two pictures of it. I wonder just how many pictures of these two men dancing did he take?

Now I won't post the last photo because it is extremely lurid. You can see it on LaBarbera webpage (and when you see it, you will know what I'm talking about), however, based upon his description of it, the subject in question may not have been a part of the festival:

The large poster drawing of a naked man wearing a condom was visible from afar at the Penn’s Landing ‘Pride” festival. There was NO warning at this booth that it was off-limits to children, but even if there was, young children would still see this inappropriate poster.

Is it just me or is LaBarbera starting to get boring. I almost miss the old Porno Pete.

Surely there must be another leather festival somewhere.

I'm not sure I'd call that last picture "extremely lurid." it was a cartoon drawing of a naked man (well, almost naked) with a condom and a paper-dolls style assortment of swimsuits/underwear that people could place over his penis so that he would be "dressed."

I'm surprised Pete can go anywhere in the queer community with a camera and not be loudly outed and shamed into leaving. Time to circulate his picture again and get our photographers to follow him around events. Not harass, but to document his behavior. Just once, I'd like to see a picture of him smiling at some of the Folsom events. That might put an end to his campaign once and for all...

Wait, what? An illustration of a naked guy with a condom on gets his nads in a lather?

He wears a disguise when he goes to events. I picture someone with those black glasses, fake nose, and a mustache that you can buy for a buck. Either that or REALLY bad drag.

Since we're having our Pride parade here in Chicago this week (his own backyard), I'm sure he'll have pix from that up in the next week or so,

Pete has such a darkness in the recess of his soul when it comes to homosexuality, it's gone from a fixation to something he now needs deliverance from. All this time running around gay events when he could better use his time to be with his wife and children, uplift souls, inspire hope within the broken, show himself in the world as a man who loves his neighbor as himself with being a 'slave' to his neighbor in loving kindness that's been known to move mountains. Instead he looks disturbing and desperate, hollow and obsessed. I leave this "thing" alone and just sigh.

Geeze, Alvin, I'm not sure which photo you mean - the one too lurid to post, that is. Is it the one of the Home Depot sign? The LGBT for Obama sign? The little kids in the wading pool? Or the stop bullying, end AIDS, gay by God signs? They're all pretty lurid, if you ask me!

Pete really is slipping, isn't he? He sounds disappointed that there was no full nudity, poor boy! But then, he does seem certain that the singer is wearing only a loin cloth. Did he peek, one wonders?
