Louisville Fairness Campaign snubs openly gay candidate in primary electionMay 26th, 2012 | By Julie Fite, Contributor | Category: Kentucky Political News
The Louisville Fairness Campaign’s Political Action Committee snubbed former Jefferson County Judge/Executive candidate Curtis Morrison in his latest campaign, the Kentucky Senate. Curtis Morrison, an openly gay candidate was snubbed in favor of incumbent Denise Harper Angel.
The question lingers why Morrison was snubbed? Kentucky’s gay community needs an openly gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender person in the Kentucky State House!
The last person to run on an openly gay platform was Matthew Vanderpool.
The Louisville Fairness Campaign has never been one to “rock the boat” not even to endorse a gay candidate.
I also find Chris Hartman calling us “queers” offensive and uncalled for. Have we not struggled and fought too hard to be called “queer?”
Kevin Pennington was called “queer” many times when they tried to kill him: “During the attack (the victim) was covering his face and they were all screaming `how do you like this faggot?”‘ Sankey wrote. “Ashley yelled `yeah that what you like queer were gonna kill your … now’.”
The word “queer” is a derogatory term used to describe homosexual people.
Even the dictionary confirms this:
Earlier this year Chris Hartman embarrassed Kentucky’s gay community by becoming a bully after a House Committee meeting on school bullying. Both the Louisville Courier-Journal and State Journal ran the story.
