Queer Challenge to “We’re Just Like You”
Love this so hard for skewering the homo-normative narrative that mainstream gay rights organizations like Human Rights Campaign (HRC ) is content to sell to politicians an public in order to achieve same-sex marriage (let’s not call it marriage equality, shall we?).
