Conservative Group Loses Their Minds Over Lesbian Kiss In Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade
I haven't watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade since the Thanksgiving I actually spent in New York City visiting family ten years ago, so I missed this whole kerfluffle.
It's traditional for the parade to include a performance or two from current Broadway shows. This year's outing included a song from the new musical "The Prom" which opened just recently. I'm not sure exactly what the story is about (it apparently has to do with old Broadway stars coming back to a small town high school), but at least this particular song centers around a high school couple, who happen to be lesbians and ends with the two of them kissing.
Now, if this was a heterosexual couple, it could have well been "Bye Bye Birdie," "Grease" or even "Heathers," none of them particularly wholesome musicals when you really look at the story. But this was showing a gay couple and that's just not what conservative outlet ForAmerica (with its president, David Bozell) wanted with their breakfast. Won't someone think of the children???
