In a compromise, Knoxville paper runs ___-friendly ad
A local newspaper in Knoxville, TN, has agreed to run an ad for a homo awareness event called "Come Out Knoxville," but only after all of the words "gay" and "lesbian" had been removed from the notice. The edit was reportedly made after the paper, the Fountain City Focus, received pressure from "special interest groups" seeking to red light the gay-themed advertisement. The groups' "special interest," we hear, is keeping up the illusion that it's 1947.
So come on out, Knoxville ___s and _______s - your neighbors are sorta ready to almost embrace you as long as you're vague, maybe.
