Before I get into this touchy subject here, I just want to say that I voted "NO on Prop 8.", and if you are one of those that voted Yes on Prop.8, then you're a "F#@KING @$$-HoLe".
The GLBT community has asked hollywood to boycott one of the most prestigious film festivals of the year.... Sundance Film Festival. Sundance is held every year in late January, but this year the gay community is asking aspiring filmmakers, and you people to boycott the festival by not buying tickets, and pulling out your movie out of Sundance. As to why Sundance!?!?!?
"January's star-studded extravaganza is held in Utah, home to the Mormon Church, which was instrumental in persuading 52.5 per cent of California's electorate to vote for Proposition 8, the ballot measure to outlaw same-sex weddings. Now gay rights campaigners are calling for Hollywood actors and directors to pull out of the movie festival as part of a wider consumer boycott of the state.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is headquartered in Salt Lake City and counts about 62 per cent of Utah residents as members. It provided thousands of activists and up to $40m (£27m) in funding to help Proposition 8 pass, leaving 18,000 recently-married gay couples in legal limbo.
After a week of noisy public protests, bloggers, gay rights activists and others seeking retribution against the Mormons are planning to disrupt the $6bn (£4bn)-a-year winter tourism industry, in which the week-long Sundance festival plays a central role."
Really!?!?!? Why not do what the latino's did when they fought deportation, and boycott the state of California; instead of telling aspiring filmmakers to give up their dreams because of something that some hateful mongers, unedudcated voters, some democrats, and some replubicans did to your equalty!?!?!?
Oh shit! That would also be f*cking up the economy even more, huh?
Let us not forget that it wasn't only the mormons who voted YES on Prop.8.
