Solo Strips Is Off...All Off...Due To Reisner/Weiderpass's Cruzing Comments (0)


I've had my issues with BC/EFA, but have supported its causes many times, including Solo Strips. This year, I had already purchased my ticket for the new installment.

I'm pleasantly surprised that BC/EFA has decided to take a stand against Ian Reisner and Mati Weiderpass's disingenuous and sucking-up to the very, very anti-gay Ted Cruz by canceling its association with their 42West venue.

I would suggest anyone, like me, with tickets let BC/EFA keep the money. 

Mati Wants A Weiderpass On Meeting With Anti-Gay Buffoon Comments (0)

Weiderpass has issued his own statement regarding his outrageously convivial fireside chat with Ted Cruz:

2-m-weiderpass-n-noonan-d-notoIt seems my informal dinner with the Senator has created a back lash. So there is no misunderstanding, I support gay marriage 100%. I have been a major supporter of gay causes and gay charities for two decades. People on both sides of the aisle need to be able to communicate with one another even when they ideologically disagree. As a Captain in the Army I worked tirelessly for the repeal of "Don't ask, Don't Tell". While serving on the Board of Directors for the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network I needed to reach across the aisle to make that happen. The fact that Senator Cruz accepted the invitation to my home was a step in the right direction towards him having a better understanding of who I am and what I believe in. We spent most of the time talking about national security issues and in particular the challenges from ISIS, Iran, and defense of Israel -- these are issues for which we did find common ground. However, i did not shy away from the opportunity to ask the Senator about social issues, in particular marriage equality, and made it clear that I completely disagree with him on that issue.

Yeah, the key words: ...having a better understanding of who I am and what I believe in. Because gay rights is a non-issue on which good pals can simply disagree when said good pals are filthy rich and don't really have to worry about being disenfranchised.

Reisner and Weiderpass are absolute scum. So they're pro-gay and pro-marriage...are we supposed to be grateful? If you're gay and you're not those things, you're a fucking monster.

The point is that Cruz is a candidate who is not only anti-marriage equality (a point that may become moot in a month or two when the Supremes weigh in), he is virulently anti-gay in all of his rhetoric. So what if he's able to pose for photos with cocksuckers? Hey, if he smells money, he'll go after it. In the meantime, he is anti-gay on EVERY issue, not just marriage—he thinks gay people should legally be denied service at any business.

These pillars of the gay community (wear your hardhat) need to understand that just because they're rich and don't have to sweat the small stuff (technicalities, like gay rights), they will be held accountable financially if they're going to provide aid and succor to people who are actively working against our rights. Donating to gay causes does not give them a free pass to buddy up with people working to make being gay legally difficult.


In other news, his partner (and ex-romantic partner) Ian Reisner, the face of The Out NY and the main owner of the Pines, turns out to be besties with Ken Mehlman. For those of you who think gay people need to be big-hearted and befriend people on the other side of the aisle, let's put this into perspective: Mehlman, a closeted gay man, worked with George W. Bush and the Republicans while state constitutions were being amended to explicitly deny rights to gay people. After all of that had been set up, he came out, and he also said he was pro-gay marriage.

Just think of the hundreds of millions of dollars and all the energy spent on fighting to UNDO the damage that gay sociopath was paid to help cause to his own people...and even if we win in the end, we're supposed to forget what he did and embrace him?


UPDATE: Cruz files two anti-gay bills. But he loooooooved Reisner and Weiderpass's apartment décor!

Reisner Tries Some Cruz Control Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2015-04-23 at 11.01.16 PMReisner is reacting to outrage over his and Weiderpass's hospitality for Ted Cruz, a virulently anti-gay senator who would love to be president and push for things like laws allowing gay people to be denied service and, of course, a constitutional amendment against gay marriage.

It's laughable; he now has his partyboys online defending him.

It's easy: You do NOT suck up to people who are actively trying to harm your own fucking community. How would he feel if the president of GLAAD cozied up to a famous anti-Semite? I would hope he'd be outraged and would voice that outrage.

People are not happy with Reisner.

The Pines & The Out Hotel On W. 42nd St. Are Dead To Me Comments (0)

230-central-park-south-1Reisner (L) & Weiderpass (R), are both (far-right, apparently)

This blows my mind, not that rich assholes are often Republicans, not that gay rich assholes could be Republicans, but that gay rich assholes who are Republicans could even bear to be in the same room with the virulently anti-gay (and forget the gay issue, anti-intelligent) Ted Cruz. 

Weiderpass (Reisner is saying he was merely a guest...in his own apartment) held an intimate event for the buffoonish Cruz at which Cruz allegedly said he'd be okay if one of his children were gay (how big of him!), though he is still opposed to gay marriage and any LGBT protections.


Reisner's bullshit comment to the Times that he disagrees with Cruz on social issues is not helpful. It's the same thing as saying you don't personally care about those issues if you're willing to back or even support at this level a person who is actively opposed to them. What's the point of donating money to gay causes then supporting a president and party whose platform is against those causes?

Cruz is strongly for a business's right to refuse service to gay people!

What's even more mind-blowing is that Cruz would show up to an event at an apartment where a gay man died after a night of sex and drugging. It's not like Reisner murdered him, but Jesus, the optics are pretty shocking. I wouldn't let a pro-gay candidate set foot in that place, let alone would I advise a conservative to pose for photos there.

Reisner and Weiderpass own The Out on W. 42nd Street, a gay hotel (which, whenever I say that to anyone from outside NYC, never fails to elicit confusion).

Reisner also now owns the Pines. What an insidious thing—anti-gay forces (even if they're gay tools) will be taking gay money and, in all likelihood, funneling it to political interests that are anti-gay. It's a self-defeating cycle.

Does anyone want to explain to me why I should ever feel good about setting foot in The Out again? I've already got a damn Braodway Bares Solo Strips ticket. (I've never been to Fire Island, so me not going to the Pines is a hollow declaration.)

Boycotts, some say, are not effective. Others disagree. But how about, results aside, boycotting aside, just feeling sick giving money away to someone who thinks Ted Cruz is a serious person?

I am against denying services to people for their political beliefs. If I owned a printing press, I'd print anything legal. If I owned a bakery, ditto. But this is discretionary money spent for enjoyment, and I don't see why I shouldn't take mine elsewhere.

UPDATE: Reisner issues a damage-control statement. He's got young, cute NYC nightlife types stanning for him on Facebook, too, arguing that we should be able to sit down with people with whom we have differences. Not when the difference is that person thinks I should be illegal.
