Professional “Celebimbo” Paris Hilton & her mother were the grand marshalls of the Los Angeles gay pride parade. To which I say WTF??
Paris Hilton is a trust fund brat who has never done a single thing truly deserving of any national media attention, much less done anything worthwhile of national media attention. She is the epitome of a modern American upper-class consisting of narcisisstic, vapid, self-indugent bozos who can think of nothing better to do with all their free-time than make obnoxious public spectacles of themselves. She seems to genuinely believe that the millions of dollars she possesses (though did little herself to earn) makes her better than the common rabble who have to work for a living. Her mother, as far as I can tell, seems to be no better than her. The fact that their names are associated in “pride” for any cause is laughable.
I suppose it’s only because every single noteworthy, famous gay man or lesbian in the America happened to be busy that weekend. You know how hard it is to find an openly gay or lesbian celebrity today. (Okay I’m being a little sarcastic, but still…)
Yes, other straight people have been named as grand marshalls of gay pride parades. Cyndi Lauper has led a few. But Lauper has a long history of promoting gay & lesbian rights, even way back in the early 1980s when it was not fashionable to do such things. Lauper has performed numerous charity concerts in order to raise money for AIDS research & prevention. She has done a lot for the gay & lesbian community. Paris Hilton & her mother have no connection whatsoever to gay & lesbian causes. To them, the pride parade is simply a vehicle for their own non-stop self-promotion.
According to the New York Post, during an episode of Paris’ reality show “the Simple Life”, Hilton’s fellow celebimbo Nicole Ritchie remarked she thought watching two guys making out would be “hot.” Paris Hilton’s only comment was to make a disgusted face and exclaim “eeeyyeeww.”
The fact that a straight mother & daughter team who have shown utter indifference to any cause other than themselves, and who view same-sex coupling as “icky” are being named grand marshalls of an event that’s supposed to promote pride & well-being in the gay / lesbian community just seems IMO appalling and even insulting.
I suppose Jessie Helms & Anita Bryant will be named guests of honor at the NYC pride march at the end of this month.
