    Wow sounds like a waste of time since the Rainbow that once represent the bonafide gays have now been made into something totally diferrent! Something that bi-sexuals, trans and even straight can stand under.

    Read the story. The rainbow pedestrian crossing that the government removed was specifically created for Sydney's Gay Mardi Gras. Hence the action was seen as an insult to the gay community. And this grass roots reaction by many segments of the city's population is simply great. Sorry you don't see it that way.

    Oh is that so? Well coming from a man who wed with woman and produced children with the fairer kind, I am not surprised. But us bonafied men stand united. Although I appreciate the sentiment, I am not interested in the broader community jumping on the bonafied bandwagon.

    Oh fuck, I get what's going on. If you're going to try to pretend not to be a certain Aussie, at least make an effort to not vomit out the exact same phrasing.

    Oh the resident DADT advocate has stepped in? However, I was never to shy away from my bonafied status as I came out a wee lad back in the bushes. Those days were nothing like today; as the gays were gays and straights were straights. Not at all mixed up under the rainbow umbrella.

    Thanks for posting, I was curious the where and what this rainbow was.

    It makes sense to have it there too. I don't understand how that would become a problem.

    How awesome is that. icon_biggrin.gif

    On a side note: I thought that Trublue Aussie was the only person that used the phrase "Bonafide Homosexual".

    Because a rainbow was once representative of those that were bonafied. But now thrown around by anyone, whether gay, bi or even straight as proven by the girls in the video.

    The rainbow flag represents the pride and diversity of the LGBT community. It does NOT represent "bonafide" homosexual males. The closest thing to that might be the inverted pink triangle, but would include lesbians, too.

    There's been a great outpouring of public support for the GLBT community of Sydney as a result of this state government action. I don't understand why this disturbs you so much.
