Attention, local fags, dykes, bisexuals, trannies, queer-identified & questioning, etc., etc., ad nauseum: if you’re still feeling pumped up and full of power after the amazing rally on the Plaza this past weekend, you can turn your anger & attention to a couple of civil-rights stripping businesses with representation here in town.
Normally, I think boycotts are a waste of time, but every once in awhile they work. If you’re in the mood to picket and/or boycott, have at it.
Sprint Center (Anschutz Entertainment), headed by right-wing conservative Christofacist d-bag (and Kansas native, natch), Phillip Anschutz. This is a toughie, cuz we mo’s love a show, but Anschutz made large donation in support of Colorado’s Amendment 2 a number of years ago. And since the Celine Dion show has been postponed AND they’re offering your money back on that ticket from your original point of purchase, what an awesome time to say “thanks but no thanks” to an asshole.
Cinemark Theaters. Tough, too. The Plaza Cinemark is awesome because a) it admits no one under 16 without a parent or guardian with a ticket for the same show and 2) they have that fantastic VIP room. However, the owner of Cinemark made a $9,999 donation to California’s proposition 8, a measure which passed banning marriage for same-sex couples after same-sex marriage had been deemed constitutional by the state’s Supreme Court.
Thanks Mo, for the tip.
