From CBS San Francisco:
Organizers of San Francisco’s pride weekend festivities have yanked the welcome mat away from the National Guard, voting to ban the Guard from setting up a booth at the festival.
The decision comes at the same time Pride organizers are allowing a controversial Army private who leaked military secrets to be honorary grand marshal.
The board of the San Francisco LGBT Pride Celebration Committee rejected a request from the Guard to set up an informational booth at Civic Center Plaza during Pride Weekend.
Last year, the National Guard had a booth at Pride Weekend for the first time – staffed by gay soldiers – following the repeal of the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy. The Guard was also welcomed at Pride events in Los Angeles and San Diego.
Apparently, they are not welcome because the military has a ban on “transgender” soldiers.
Of course, we all know that the military is going to lift the ban on “transgender” soldiers before the end of the Obama Administration.
So I wonder what excuse the SF “Pride” people will use then?
(Please note, I am not making a statement along the lines of, they will no longer have an excuse. There will be something else. I just wonder what it will be)
