Dallas Pride: OutTakes Dallas movie event tonight at Texas Theatre

Make a Pit Stop in Oak Cliff

As you might have read, queer filmmaker Yen Tan is hard at work on his next project Pit Stop. After the success of his film Ciao, Tan focuses again on the community with his latest film about two men who find romance in each other in a small Texas town. The film is still in the works but he gives a sort of preview tonight with staged readings from the script as well as showing clips from Ciao. He teams with OutTakes Dallas for tonight’s movie launch event in Oak Cliff. The night will also feature a conversation with Tan and producer Eric Steele.

This is an official Dallas Pride 2011 event.

DEETS: Texas Theatre, 231 W. Jefferson St. 7:30 p.m. Free. OutTakesDallas.com.

It’s Tony’s script, we just get aggressively miscast within it

Tony and his Crocs would like to share some thoughts with you. And while you’re reading them, me and my eight extramarital sex partners are going to go WD-40 the door so that we can reach “all manner of moral and social evil” even sooner:

In the same way, some self-professed conservative leaders are now turning away from the defense of marriage. Some appear at homosexual fundraisers or serve on the boards of small but vocal homosexual Republican organizations that are using the courts to thwart the voice of the people and redefine marriage. This is not conservatism.

Tony-in-crocsSome have bought into the lie that we should just accept same-sex marriage because it is inevitable. As electoral wins in more than 30 states have demonstrated, when the people are allowed to vote, they reject same-sex “marriage.”

Other conservatives suggest that because this supposedly private conduct doesn’t affect them, it should be permitted.

This is not true conservatism. Conservatives, especially Christian conservatives, realize we must love people enough to be willing to speak the truth – and the truth is that we cannot redefine marriage without opening the door to all manner of moral and social evil.

Let me be clear: I do not oppose homosexual marriage because I think it would threaten my marriage. I oppose it because it threatens the institution of marriage and, as a result, our nation itself.

Marriage is the union of one man and one woman, for life. Men and women complement each other biologically, psychologically, and emotionally in ways same-sex partners never can.

Homosexuals cannot bear one another’s children. They are not complementary, as are men and women. And they are, as a rule, highly promiscuous. Data show that the great majority of married homosexuals have multiple sexual partners. One recent study of homosexual couples found that each member of such couples averages eight additional sexual partners per year. Do I really need to say that this is not a good environment for children? Other studies suggest that children raised in homosexual homes are much more likely to be exposed to violence than those raised by a mom and a dad.

Children need a mom and a dad, not two dads or two moms.”

Oh Tony. You know what really doesn’t “complement” a gay person’s life? The constant accusations, misrepresentations, and all-out onslaughts that you and your ilk wage against LGBT families!

But you won’t stop, will you Tony? Because you were born in a time when you can not only get away with such hurtful portraits, but you can actually profit from them. That’s so unfortunate. For all of us.




Good As You
