I strongly encourage Bay Area GayPatriot readers to join leftie blogger Michael Petrelis in rallying today, Thursday, June 18, 2009, from 5-6 PM at Harvey Milk Plaza in “friendship and solidarity with the democratic-loving people of Iran.” It would be great to have some conservative gays there both to show our support for people suffering under the hand of an oppressive Islamofascist state and to express our gratitude to Petrelis for being such an advocate for our fellows in Iran. And he’s singled out conservatives who speak out for gay people.
This is not the first time Petrelis has organized on behalf of Iranian gays. He has staged protests before at Harvey Milk Plaza “over Iran’s hanging of two gay teenagers in Mashad in 2005.” He reminds participants to wear green. Let’s make sure American gay conservatives stand together with our San Francisco liberal brethren on behalf of all Iranians, but particularly our gay fellows, suffering under the lash of a brutal tyranny.
Something tells me HRC will not be sending a representative. I wonder if any gay group will.
I won’t be able to trek up to the Bay Area, but will be wearing green all day to show my solidarity with the Iranian people. Please do the same.
