As some of you may have heard, a band originally set to perform at “The Sound of Fairview” block party cancelled.
The band called Christopher Constant, vice-president of the Fairview Community Council, and told him that they wouldn’t be performing because of the “fag shit” at the party. They felt that the gay lifestyle and children don’t mix.
But don’t gay couples have children all the time, through adoption or other methods?
I’ll let you read the actual stories (Press: http://www.anchoragepress.com/news/article_d6cb625a-9222-11e0-8155-001cc4c03286.html) (Bent Alaska: http://www.bentalaska.com/2011/06/sound-of-fairview-block-party-2011/) .
Pay close attention to some of the user comments made in the Press article.
These comments and the fact that this still happened are the reason why every one of us should Step Up, Step Out and come to the block party.
We need to show the community what we are all about. No matter if you are in drag, wearing your rainbow regalia, or just being plain you. We are a part of this community.
So I hope to see you there tomorrow, at the Fairview block party at 2 p.m.
