I'm not watching the Republican Beach Party down in Tampa, not any of it. I'm blacking out the news until Monday because it's about nothing but the Tampa Bash.
I'm a gay man with a partner of 9 years. I'm a public employee and a union member. I'm an artist. And I live up here in Sodom-By-The-Hudson. The folks gathering in Tampa don't even consider me human, let alone a "real American." So why should I waste my time watching a party that repeatedly likes to remind me that I'm not welcome?
