I do not believe in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance.
Coming events at Flamingos Bar... Liverpool Street, Hobart. July 2011.
If you haven't guessed from the events board above, Flamingos is a happening Tasmanian venue dedicated to the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community and their friends and families. I am not sure where they stand with regards to the intersex people - their website was silent on the matter - but one assumes that they would also be made welcome. Their families and friends? Well, that is an entirely different matter....
I like to consider myself extraordinarily broad minded (some of my best friends are furries) and I am very much a supporter of those of us who are natural left footers. Gay marriage? Gays have as much right to be as miserable as anybody else! Indeed, the best and only advice that I have to anyone who doesn’t like the idea of gay marriage is not to marry one.
That said, I’m not sure that the Homo High Annual High School Theme Party™ is entirely the best idea, given some of the Palaeolithic attitudes and assumptions that many people hold about natural left footers in the community.
