Broken Gay-Dar

Sent to Giuliano@glaad.org (Neil G. Giuliano, President of GLAAD)

Mr Giuliano,

PLEASE, I beseech you, DON'T push ABC/Disney to give Lance Bass a male dance partner on "Dancing With the Stars"...this to me would be like asking them to give a black star only a black partner.

I'm gay.  I'm married to my husband of fifteen years.  *I* don't want to see two men dancing together on THIS television series.

PS.  I wish that you would consider giving awards to people on "Logo" (like, perhaps, the cast of "The Big Gay Sketch Show") and maybe some other ACTUAL gay people instead of kissing up to straight media for deigning to feature us on THEIR shows, especially when most of the time, those same portrayals are tantamount to minstrel shows with flouncing, limp-wristed fools who care only about partying, drugs and sex (Jack McFarland on "Will and Grace" comes to mind).

Thank you,

Bryan F. Irrera
