Angry To The Touch

Gay Rights Albany.jpg

I’ve been thinking about this photo for a couple of days now.

It shows a gay rights activist at a NY State capitol rally last Tuesday, right, “faced off” (as the caption puts it) with a man opposed to gay marriage. At least one reading here speaks to those who are virulently anti-gay, in the closet, and interested but terrified.

(11:50 pm PST. Revised for coherence.)
