This actually kind of is a gay agenda

by Jeremy Hooper

Equality-MarchHeading to DC for the National Equality March? Well then, you'll probably want to know where, exactly, to go once you get in the District. Otherwise you'll be wandering around aimlessly like an annoying tourist, and will spend all your time fighting to find the HRC building rather than fighting back against those who'd like to turn that same edifice into a reparative therapy clinic. You don;t want that, do you?

Fortunately, Beltway-bound boys and gals and label non-conformists, we've got ya all covered. Here's the full list of events, as provided by the event's organizers:

Your thoughts

Where's the "wipe out organised religion" masterclass? Or the "take over the world using tv" seminar? I was looking forward to those.
I have a little white cat and I've been practising my evil laugh.
Maybe next year...*sobs*.
