Knoxville gay fest to be mayor-less; Drag queens bemoan missed opportunity to discuss city planning

by Jeremy Hooper

   Bill Haslam, mayor of Knoxville, TN, has reportedly declined issuing a city proclamation recognizing next month's gay rally and festival. In addition, the mayor has also turned down an invitation to speak at the soiree, announcing that he will instead send the city's senior director of policy development, Bill Lyons, as a representative.

Inspired by the mayor's decision, we hear that those anti-gay extremists who had planned to attend the event to condemn folks to a fiery eternity, will instead send deputy dogmatics who'll merely rebuke folks to a brief period of lukewarm purgatory.

Go Vols.
