Skip to comments.Beyoncé Ignored the LGBT Community in Houston

It kills me to write this post. I have spent more time worshiping BeyoncÃ© than just about any other pop star. I've spent countless hours dancing to "Grown Woman" alone in my apartment. I've been the only guy in a dance class aimed at teaching the "Single Ladies" dance, and I loved every second of it. BeyoncÃ© has been queen in my life since the first time I watched the "Crazy In Love" video.
Over the past few months, BeyoncÃ© has repeatedly refused the opportunity to speak out against the legalization of discrimination against LGBT people in her hometown...
Last night Houstonians voted to repeal the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO), a city ordinance prohibiting discrimination on the basis of 15 different characteristics, including race, sex, disability, sexual orientation and gender identity. HEROâs repeal is likely the biggest setback for LGBT civil rights since the 2008 passage of Prop 8 in California.
In August, I found out that HERO would be going up for a public repeal vote, and my stomach turned. Laws like HERO tend to lose, badly, when theyâre put up for a public vote. I thought about my friends in Houston -- activists I had worked with on HERO for months, people who had dedicated their work, their free time, and their emotional energy to ending discrimination in their hometown. I imagined watching their hard work erased at the ballot box. I imagined having to sit through another expensive, brutal campaign about whether it should be legal to discriminate against LGBT people. I wanted to help.
So I did what any god-fearing gay man does in his time of need. I turned to BeyoncÃ©....

“I’ve spent countless hours dancing to “Grown Woman” alone in my apartment.”
Some one remind me how gay men arent mentally Ill.
“Laws like HERO tend to lose, badly, when theyÃ¢â¬â¢re put up for a public vote.”
Telling ain’t it?
Dirty little secret when we are told how over 50% ‘support’ same sex marriage...

You should seek professional help, Carlos. Soon, too.
I’d post the South Park ‘delicious tears’ pic but it’s appropriateness is suspect on a homo thread.
Just keep that in mind when we see what the polls tell us about everything else we oppose.
The author calls itself ‘a god-fearing gay man’.
Isn’t that a non-sequitur? If one were truly ‘god-fearing’, one would not be homosexual.
Poor, self decieved freak.
You lie. Then again, he is a director at Media Matters.
His first mistake was worshipping a human being.
If he is going to obsess over some mortal, wouldn’t he be fixated on a dude?
>> I have spent more time worshiping Beyonce
Well that there is your first problem, fruitcake.
Try worshipping GOD. Go to His Son JESUS for healing from your brokenness.
Live will improve for you here and continue on forever.
Drama queen. No one is legalizing discriminations do not passing this bad law.
HEROÃ¢â¬â¢s repeal is likely the biggest setback for LGBT civil rights since the 2008 passage of Prop 8 in California.
Well maybe not a huge setback but a goodstart.
And why is that, Carlos?
I was unaware it was legal anywhere to discriminate against people based on sex, gender, age or race...
So because this gay guy doesn’t get special treatment, it discrimination. ?
