2014 Rose Bowl Parade Will End With Televised Gay Marriage

 

2014 Rose Bowl Parade Will End With A Gay Marriage

In the Tournament of Roses Parade held each year on New Year’s Day, giant festive floats made with millions of fresh-cut flowers draw millions of viewers, but this year’s parade will end with a float featuring a much more different theme.

According to ABC News, a play on the parade’s 2014 theme “Dreams Come True,” and sponsored by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, the float will celebrate same-sex marriage and the role it can play in helping to reduce new HIV infections among gay men.

On New Year’s Day, Aubrey Loots, 42, and Danny Leclair, 45, of Los Angeles, will wed on a giant wedding cake shaped float – a first in the parade’s 125 year history. The couple have been together for 12 years and are hoping to publicly profess their love.

Loots and Leclair attended a same-sex wedding expo in October where they applied for a chance to marry atop the float.

“Having my relationship recognized legally is already a dream come true,” Leclair said in an Aids Healthcare Foundation press release. “To be able to declare my love to the world at large in hopes of inspiring others to live proudly and authentically is an enormous honor.”

To make the ceremony more personal, Leclair said that he will read one of his favorite Nelson Mandela quotes in homage to the South African civil rights leader and his boyfriend who both are from South Africa.

“We’re responsible for changing people’s minds. We need to say whom we love without shame,” Leclair said.

  • high treason

    One of the BIG conundrums we see these days. On one hand, there is a lot of ass licking of gays and gay rights, marriage etc, but on the other hand, there is ass licking of Islam-especially by Obama (who is gay and Muslim) who would execute gays, Perhaps the New World Order would have the gays marry, then cut both of their heads off at the same time.

  • Robert Bridgewater

    I won’t be watching that crap because I won’t be watching that ridiculous parade. It’s become a complete farce.

  • Byrum Blobshittle

We need to kill this whole faggot agenda before America turns into another Africa with faggots bringing aids to every town in our once great land! GO TO AFRICA FAGGOTS!

  • pj4me

  • pj4me

    I’m offended that gays expect me to be tolerant of their offensive immoral sexual choice, but they are not tolerant of my being offended by their immoral sexual choice.

  • zion1king

    Could be a first time to throw up just watching a parade but I won’t be watching.

  • zion1king

    What a cause for celebration!!! Next year it will be someone on a float marrying their pet donkey.

  • fhamilton

    What does a gay wedding ceremony have to do with football?

  • Peggie Geiger

    The union may be excepted legally, but it is not spiritually, not excepted by God, you know the one who blesses the union of a MAN & WOMEN! His blessing and recognition is the only one that counts. Sorry!

  • Fred Allen Wooden

    I’d tune in just long enough to see How much the crowd shrunk

  • Fred Allen Wooden

  • Bill

    Texan, I think you had too much caffeine this morning!

  • Bill

    We are allowing this very tiny community to control our country under the ever thin veil of being politically correct. I am tired walking on eggshells to protect their poor little feelings. F’ them now!
