We Are Finally Liberated!

drag queenDrag queen Panti Bliss (Rory O'Neill) is now the very face of modern Ireland.  We are finally liberated!

Sinn Fein’s Lesbian, Gay Bi-Sexual and Transexual (LGBT) representative, Chris Curran, condemned the RTE decision to pay €85,000 to certain individuals and representatives of the Iona Institute whom he had labelled as "homophobes". They had alleged defamation by Miss Panti Bliss on the programme. They also received a broadcast apology.

Sinn Fein's leader, Gerry Adams said at their conference here in Wexford yesterday:  “Panti, Sinn Fein LGBT commends you, for you represent the future of Ireland.”

I don't know if it's like this in Ireland, but it drives me crazy here in the States, if a Liberal bad mouths a conservative, they have to tuck their tail between their legs and apologize, but the conservatives can pretty much say whatever they want and never feel the need to apologize. I wish the Liberals would get a back bone and stand up for what they think. :o
Patti looks amazing by the way. :)
Hugs, Jon
Some interesting news I wasn't aware of. Go Ireland!
I think the world is coming around for GLBT. I know the Sunday Drag Queen bingo is getting more and more packed.
Oscar Wilde would be proud, I reckon.
