  1. Dr. G E Subero 16 Oct 2013, 8:34am

    It still amazes me how ridiculously shallow we can be as a community and how we’re pigeonholed as such by the media (specially the gay media). An award to celebrate what? How’s the most “glamorous” and “fabulous” gay icon? How about an award to the people who actually make a real difference in the gay community: HIV and social workers, health promoters, politicians, grassroots groups, organisations looking to promote equality and eradicate homophobia, individuals whose work makes it possible for everyone of us to be respected and recognised as people despite our sexual orientation? Shame on you Attitude, you’re as bad as the rest because you celebrate frivolity over substance and think we are all just as frivolous as you are!!!

  2. I’m afraid I have to agree with Dr Subero. As much as I drool over Ben Cohen every weekend when he ‘dances’ in SCD, the only reason he is honoured with a ‘gay’ award is to attract publicity for Attitude. Now, I can cope with that, because Mr Cohen is an ‘ally’ (kissing SCD’s Craig was a brilliant gesture) as long as ‘front-liners’ in our community (as described in Dr Subero’s comments) are also acknowledged.
