Where are you getting this idea that anyone involved in this group - the creators or the participants - is sitting around whining about how life is so hard and unfair. Rather, it seems like what they are doing is attempting to be pro-active about it, and ensure that they have an event that they can enjoy without the negativity they get in other aspects of their life.

I never said the organizers and participants were sitting around whining. They are doing the right thing. Just take the political spin (which was indicated in the article) out of it. Hopefully a minority attendee who previously felt hopeless can get a positive out of it -- make new friends, etc.

No, it's not going to change the mind of your "backwoods, redneck" but it's not supposed to.

Then remove the politcal aspect of it. It's useless.

The more exposure that people have to something, the more "normal" it becomse.

Of course, but I'd wager that 99% of the attendees already consider homosexuality normal. Agree? Disagree?

Young people rather overwhelming supports homosexuals for that very reason. It's not about this generation, it's about the next.

Well if the majority of young people support it, not much else needs to be said. The next generation is taken care of -- they'll pass it on to their children.
