  1. Edith, you’re a SUPERSTAR !

    Not only for LGBT rights, but also a fantastic role model for older people.

    1. Hope she appears very soon on ‘Ellen’.

      She’s such a charismatic person, and she must have some fascinating stories to tell.

    It is Grand Marshal of the Pride Parade. But it is a fantastic honor for a fantastic lady.

    I dearly hope that if I’m lucky enough to reach 84, I’m even half as sprightly and energized as Ms. Windsor.

    What an incredible legacy to be remembered for.

  4. You’re a troll, but I’ll bite. Gay people are fighting for THEIR rights. If you want to go out and fight for incest rights, go and get off your backside and do it yourself. Don’t hijack one campaign with another that has nothing to do with it.

    ‘Incestuous community’? Gay people have made lives with each other, and families, and homes, for years. even when homosexuality was criminalized. This tosh about incest and polygamy is idiotic, given that, as far as I’m aware, there isn’t exactly a huge community of polygamous or incestuous relationships.

      Homosexuality was criminalized for years but everybody knew some gay people – enough for the police to go out of their way to arrest gay men. Incest is illegal, and there are cases of it, but on the level that there were gay couples around prior to gay rights movements? No. Never. And again – homosexuality and incest are both illegal in Uganda, but we can still point to evidence of gay communities in Uganda, whereas we can’t do the same for an ‘incest community’.

      Laws that bar people on grounds of sexual orientation? The right to donate blood for one. The fact that in Northern Ireland a single gay person can adopt a child, but a same-sex couple in a civil partnership can’t, meaning they choose EITHER having a child OR being in a civil partnership.

      Again, gay people fight for their own rights because to take on everybody else’s is idiotic. If you want the right to marry your sister, start a group with her and lobby the government. Don’t expect gay people to do it for you.

  5. Keith, who has nothing better to do. 1 Jul 2013, 6:15pm

    So you admit you’re playing Devil’s advocate rather than actually looking rights to incestuous relationships?

    Pull the other one.
