Know Your LGBT History - Love between gay men

All of us in the lgbt community get dogged by nasty folks forever stitching us to the worst stereotypes. However, gay men sometimes are figuratively tied to a platform, raised in the air, and have tomatoes thrown at us as the standard bearers of all that's wrong with being an lgbt.

How we supposedly engage in intercourse (and you know what I'm talking about - anal sex) is the key to the anti-gay's exploitation of the "ick" factor regarding our lives. And I personally think it's ludicrous. When you see a heterosexual couple walking down the street, do you wonder how they enjoy sexual relations? Of course not. You see a couple and that's it. 

The video below reminds us all that when it comes to gay male couples, that's basically the same thing that you should see - two men in a relationship. Nothing sexual at all. Just two people who found someone they can share their lives with.

And in case you are wondering, I purposely chose vintage couples to spotlight. Forget the stereotypical pretty boys for a while:

The fact that the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer is claiming that the Duck Dynasty controversy is evidence of the "Mark of the Beast" (which is supposed to usher in Armageddon) makes me so jealous. It's apparent that he has better "medication" that me.

Alabama town invites gay dance troupe to parade; controversy ensues

According to Buzzfeed:

The Prancing Elites, an all-male gay cheerleading squad from Mobile, Alabama, danced in a Christmas parade a few miles west in the small town of Semmes last weekend. Townsfolk, however, were appalled, apparently not knowing that The Prancing Elites were planned for the parade.

Why were they shocked? Let the video tell the story:
