It's pretty ghastly to look at. To say this was a sex offender's candy store is not an exaggeration. This year there were more weird adults mingling everywhere -- lots of them official guests of the organizers.Â The "transgender" element was everywhere -- cross-dressing men and women trying to become men. And you could tell that many of the kids were very confused and vulnerable. Kids were encouraged to act out their "gayness" and feel "safe" doing it.
Gov. Deval Patrick, a public supporter of the homosexual movement in Massachusetts, declined to attend this event because of its reputation for depraved activity with children. That turned out to be a good choice for him (tho not for the kids).
But official state support was everywhere. The Governor released an official state proclamation, which was read over the loudspeakers. The new head of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (a man "married" to another man) gave a speech. The police were there for "security" and cleared the streets for the parade. And it was organized by the new super-charged "Massachusetts Commission on Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Youth" created by the Legislature last year.
