Video: Al & Al -- does their love fly in AL?

by Jeremy Hooper

Back in November of last year, we told you how ABC's "20/20" program was filming a piece in Birmingham, AL, in which they were conducting an experiment to gauge how local citizens react to public displays of same-sex affection. This past Friday, that very story aired.

So how did Birminghamians feel about the queer smooches in their midst? Well, you can see for yourself, as our buddy Andy Towle has uploaded clips from the episode. See the good, the bad, and the reactionary 911 call below:

Your thoughts

I do find the results somewhat surprising, especially the one younger girl who said she was bothered by same sex kissing in public. Ironically the guy who was arriving in Vegas (sin city) to most likely drink, party, gamble and engage in whatever other debauchery was the one who felt the right to judge (will have to stand before God and explain why we're gay, on judgement day), uh no actually we wont because God will already know.
And yet some of the older folks had no problem with it, like the one who would like them as neighbors for the eye candy :-)

John Stossel seemed to take a strange stance on this too. I mean, you can't "turn on the TV without seeing THE GAY"? Questioning whether America is ready to accept gays?

I guess the thing that bothered me most was that this was a cheap, obvious, and easy bit of reporting. Whatevs.

Very good video. This is why I think lesbians should do our fighting for us, they are more accepted. Just a thought.
