Nation's First Gay Museum Opens in San Francisco (barf alert)
SF Chronicle ^ | 1/12/11

Posted on 01/12/2011 8:56:01 AM PST by markomalley

The nation's first gay museum opening in San Francisco's Castro district showcases a variety of items ranging from Harvey Milk's pink-framed sunglasses to manuscripts and sex toys.

The 1,600-square-foot museum, opening Wednesday, chronicles the evolution of what organizers call the liberation of the gay, bisexual and transgender community.

Milk's sunglasses displayed in the GLBT History Museum are a tribute to the late San Francisco supervisor, who was the first elected openly gay politician in California.

Is there a model of an HIV virus on display/

How about a chart showing the extent of AIDS worldwide?

Another chart showing the medical costs over time, as well as who paid for them: patients, freebies, governments?

A pedophile section?

Imagine having your child come home, needing you to sign a permission slip to the class trip to the freak museum. I’m sickened just imagining the exhibits: “Hall of Fisting” complete with a try-it-yourself gadget (like a blood pressure machine) where you simply slip your hand...never mind.

Our Nation has lost its way.
A museum dedicated to a perversion?
What next a pedophile convention in Vegas?

I suppose it's too much to hope that this is a private museum and that taxpayer funds weren't used?

No, that’s where the bath house and private sex-stalls are, but that was an (un)natural mistake. LOL

Are they going to have a small animal petting zoo for the kids? You know, gerbils and such?

The 1,600-square-foot museum...

Only 1,600 square feet? That’s pretty small.

Sna Francisco is in serious danger of a lot more than another earthquake. I think its pushing a fire and brimstone from heaven a al Sodom and Gomorrha exhibition from God.

What a perverted place.

That would be in the “Scat” gallery.

It's legal porn; it will make a fortune. In fact, I think they're slipping. I can't imagine why this hasn't been done already.

Maybe something good will come of this (pun intended). Heck, wouldn't this be the appropriate venue for some of Robert Mapelthorpe's steamier photos of Arnold? It might serve as an object lesson for aspiring politicians! (yeah, that's "pun intended" too)

Things they will no doubt have on display:

1. How anal collapse occurs.

2. 3d ass fisting video.

3. The “AIDS is our Disease” wall of heroes.

4. Bug Chasing 101.

5. How to have government pay for your anti-AIDS drugs free.

6. A closet with an open door.

7. The “2 Dads or 2 Moms are better than a mom and dad” exhibit.

8. The blindfolded sensory game, “Guess what’s in your mouth.”

9. The first copy of the re-made “Dick and Jane” classic, “Dick In Joe.”

There are notable gays like Alan Turing who are appropriate subjects for a museum but including sex toys? I don’t think I’ll ever be visiting their museum.

It looks like they're a private museum. Levi Strauss is a sponsor according to the museum website.

Since the leftist California legislature is trying their hardest to push homo-indoctrination on children, it’s a good bet that this will be a prime field trip destination for area schools. Count on it.

It will be a “Harvey Milk Day” excursion.
