Pro-Gay Flash Mobs Organize In Three Vietnam Cities

September 24th, 2012

A BTB reader tipped me to this Asian LGBT web site reporting on a pro-gay flash mob dance events which were held in three cities in Vietnam: Hanoi, Da Nang, and Ho Chi Minh City:

According to the organiser’s website, some 1,200 people participated in the event in three cities which was supported by TV channel VTV6.

Le Quang Binh, head of iSEE (Institute for Studies of Society, Economy and Environment), told Fridae in a statement: “We believe many people stigmatise homosexuals and transgender people because they do not know who are LGBT. Many still believe that LGBT are abnormal people. (The) flash mob helps to show the society that LGBT are ordinary people just like others. LGBT are sons and daughters, friends and colleagues, workers and lawyers. This helps to reduce stigma and increase support for LGBT rights.”

Vietnam’s ruling Communist Party is debating whether to allow marriage or civil unions for same-sex couples.

Check out these four minutes of joy and inspiration. Then scroll up the column and see the spectral visage and spiteful words of Ratzinger. Any one of these kids (whether Buddhist, Communist, Catholic or whatever) has more heart, soul and love than the Pope and all his pathetic minions.

BTW, the enthusiasm of this flash mob is obvious and contagious! Much more enjoyable to watch this kind than groups where their hearts aren’t really in it.

Wouldn’t it be great to have an
“END OF THE WORLD CELEBRATION”
on December 21st 2012
to celebrate our lives and loves on that infamously publicized date?

A good place to have one would be in front of the Main Library – since a lot of places don’t have a city center.

Thanks for the opportunity to express my thoughts. I’m 84 and don’t know how to put something together nationally or otherwise.

Good luck with any variation possible.
