What a great idea to open this news item to comments! Now all the OTP inbreds and Jesux freaks (not a typo, btw) can anonymously spew their ill-informed opinions wrapped in hatred all over the AJC. Well, I’m sure they’ll do it with their own sense of “pride” in mind. Everybody else: Happy Pride! :)

Maybe you should use more of your energy to keeping Midtown safer against all the transients/non citizens/lawlessness that they let roam here at all hours in and around the park which I live next door.
All you have to do is walk around here at any time of the day & you will know what I mean regardless if you are gay or straight.
Since we are the one’s paying the obnoxious property taxes around here we try to work with local officials to at least help keep this place a bit safer but it isn’t necessarily PC if you know what I mean.

BTW though, you might be big & bad but if you really had some balls, don’t have this festival in Atlanta.
How about moving it to the same street as the Ground Zero Mosque. You will then learn about tolerance or the lack thereof so why don’t you get your priorities straight.

Please just for once let God handle his will and leave him out of everything you don’t like about the gay life style. PLEASE!

Eric, “Light” posts that same message on every blog I post, regardless of topic. I guess he/she views the Buzz blog as the mission field..

Well I’m excited about the festival. There are some really good films this year. I’ve bought my tickets for two of the films Sunday afternoon.
