American Apparel, which has a King Street store, is offering a T-shirt online with "Legalize Gay: Repeal Prop 8 Now." In this era of being disappointed in one anti-gay business after another, it's nice to have a business you can support because theyr'e supporting you.
Meanwhile, Kenny Chesney has had about enough of the rumors that he's gay. There are apparently more than 100 women who will confirm that he is not gay — they would likely also tell you he's an apparent manwhore that has been spared from VD by the grace of god.
Here are the details:
Saturday, Nov 15
Time: 1:30 - gather in Liberty Square (360 Concord St)
1:45 - walk from Liberty square to King Street via Calhoun Street and back.
2:15 - Re-gather in Liberty square.
We will have speakers and music
3:00 - crowed will disperse
3:00-3:30 volunteers will help clean up the park.
Info has been updated in a later post.
If you think that Califonia's Prop 8 doesn't impact us here, there are gay and lesbian couples here in Charleston who went across the county to marry.
Sure, the big draw is Ru Paul. I saw her in Savannah and it was, literally, a tranny mess. But everybody has an off day. Those similarly concerned can take heart that there is a healthy list of fellow entertainers.
Including Richard Cortez (above). What? You thought we just put a shirtless guy on this post for kicks?
