I think it comes just after the Brighton Douche Convention.

I think the gay community needs to just stick together. Ive noticed a tendancy to split the gays and lesbians up and now the black and white gays? Are black and white gays really being proud about different things?

We do all pretty much stick together, but I think African Americans can struggle a lot more with coming out because it's a lot less acceptable in their groups and communties.
I think they really struggle being openly gay and thus the event has a purpose.

I think this is the closest thing to truth in this thread. Instead of immediately condescending on this purpose of the CELEBRATION(and honey....it was, indeed, a celebration), I think it would be wise to find out why certain groups find it necessary to have specific Pride events.

Are black and white gays really being proud about different things?Definitely a good question. The problems in the Black LGBT community are a bit different, and many in that community feel that a separate Pride is necessary in order to meet the agenda. Personally, I like both celebrations, and I have wonderful gay friends of all races. The larger one, though, is populated by the white community, and the campaign is mostly political. I agree with that because my rights are involved with that.

The Black movement seems to still be a rather social movement, though. Dealing with "coming out," HIV, religion, and general homophobia in a community where much of it is based on a sense of hypermasculinity.

Awesome post! Many of my closest friends are black and gay... there is a split amongst black gays and lesbians too IMO bases on cultural identification. I think having a generalized gay pride that deals with all issues and workshops within one gay pride event would be best. Creating separate events does not unify us but you do make a very valid point. Gay pride in general though in the US is way too oriented towards just partying and showing your ass and not anything meaningful IMO.

Yeah. I always have to decide between going to the US Open and Atlanta Black Gay Pride.
I've picked the US Open 5 years straight.

Plus most black gays in the northeast go to the West Indian Festival in NYC during the US Open.
It's considered the other gay event. :tape:
This way you can see Serena and Venus and have your gay black quota. :lol:

Yes. That is Eva from America's Next Top Model and Frenchie Davis from American Idol.

This year Toccarro who is also from the same cycle as Eva hosted a black gay event in ATL.
I was surprised. From the pictures most of the porn stars were dressed to impress.
I'm use to seeing them without any clothes that it was just different. :lol:
