The white gay male is the dominant image that has been associated with the gay rights movement. We have discussed this issue in class to some extent; the invisibility of lesbianism, gay individuals of color, and any other identity that does not fit neatly into the gay white man mold. The following blog article addresses this issue, it ties the pervasive gay white male image to the patriarchy's role in the gay rights movement.

  1. I wonder how the lesbian members of the gay community feel about having it declared that womens rights have been accomplished? This quote from the article really surprised me that I had not thought about women's rights associated with gay rights. Women's rights have truly not be accomplished because so many states will not allow same sex marriage. I loved the sign that the young man held up because it is blunt and truly I feel it is "crap". Preventing same sex couples to get married is ridiculous in my option.
