Skip to comments.Lavender lights to shine on City Hall for LGBT Heritage Month [L.A.]
Posted on 06/07/2012 7:15:44 AM PDT by kevcol
Beginning Wednesday night, the purple-hued lights will shine on City Hall after dark, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's office announced. The pylons at Los Angeles International Airport have glowed lavender since the beginning of the month and will continue to do so until Friday.
The lights are meant to symbolize the "struggles and progress" of the LGBT community, the mayor's office said.
"It's all about civil and human rights, which we don't have," Bill Rosendahl, the first openly gay candidate to run for and be elected to the City Council, told the crowd gathered in front of City Hall last year. "We still fight."
A Villaraigosa spokeswoman initially called it a "happy" coincidence the lights would turn on the same day President Barack Obama arrived for a two-day stay in L.A. where he will meet with LGBT supporters, but later said the lighting was intended to align with Obama's visit.

"gay rights" is all about
what 2 consenting adults do in their bedroom public workshops on fisting, 'watersports'...and men wearing a square inch of clothing parading down the center of town.
Hussein arrived just in time...
You see, if we only let them do these workshops and perverted Sodom Parades during "gay pride" month, then they won't try to do them year-round, in schools, in churches (forced to rent the space), at halftime of the Superbowl.
Sodom and Gomorrah.
Why are you posting this crap?
What rights does this guy not have?
He is running for office.
He can live where he wants, can go to the doctor, drive a car, write a check, have a bank account, be in debt, be rich, have a job, live with whoever he wants, enter into contracts, be a jack ass, go the church of his choice.........
He has all the same rights as everyone else.
Maybe a “Barf” alert would be in order in the head line. I gag when two or three per cent of our population shoves their crazy lifestyle in my face. The days of them staying in the closet or at least being quiet were better for all of us.
Since when is it assumed that “Lavender” is a gay color?! LA should have their asses (pardon the pun) sued off for insensitivity. Quick! Get the LA office of “Tolerance and Diversity” on the blower! (oops. There’s another one)
He doesn’t have the right to marry a dude. That’s his beef. Everything else is cancelled out, in the opinion of the gay activists, because of that.
It’s amazing to me all of the anger in the homosexual community. America and western society have never been as open and accepting and “tolerant”, if you will, of homosexuality than right now in our history. Yet these people, who have gotten everything that they have wanted since Stonewall, are more pissed off than ever.
Oh my! I actually clicked on your link and think I’m going to be sick. These people are actually celebrating fisting and watersports. Talk about mentally ill degenerates, and they’re proud of it.
I agree. The article is sick, but we have to understand what we're facing. This isn't really a movement to legalize gay marriage. It's an attempt to remove any and all moral judgments about sex (and silence anyone who disagrees). Sodomite marriage is just a small step to what they really want.
I thought CA was in a financial crisis. How much are those lights costing the taxpayers?
NAMBLA at its heels.
How come the Homosexuals got to steal purple as “their color”? They think they are royalty? Crying shame.
But seriously - these people are more than just sick - they are absolutely deprived. If they REALLY were all about being treated fairly, they would keep their sins in the bedroom. But no - they have to shove it up every strait person’s butt (pun only partially intended).
Seriously - these sinfests they call “Gay Pride” events are somewhat like rape - forcing something on someone of a sexual nature that they do not want and did not invite.
Trying to mate with a male’s anal canal, or by using a rubber appliance on a female, is like trying to eat by sticking a carrot in your eat. The homosexuals are insane.
It’s also about “affirmative action” for gays (installing gay “role models” in prominent positions in business, politics and the arts, the way that English lord demanded), promoting the “gay way of life,” in schools and churches, as a valid, morally acceptable way of living, teaching about positive contributions of gays to society, etc.
In some departments, right now, you can’t get hired unless you’re gay (see NY Times).
Next step for Obama: have an openly gay person nominated as his Vice-Presidential candidate, who will campaign with his/her partner.
