NAACP LGBT Town Hall Los Angeles CA: Activist Ashley commandeers the microphone after sending this mobile upload telling us “Wow, CNN’s Don Lemon just said transsexual and transgender people are really just “gay” and are the “same thing as gay”. Unbelievable!”
Don Lemon (far right) obviously aghast at having his gay patriarchal misrepresentation of transsexuals blown up by Ashley Love. Lemon looks on at NAACP’s former director Julian Bond in horror as to say HEY I thought it was an unspoken agreement, no transsexuals or dogs?
Ashley is humble in victory later telling us “Julian Bond was kind and fair enough to let me speak at the end, though Don Lemon interrupted me and made excuses for his misinformation.”
This episode of transsexual educating gays would have been completely unnecessary had the transgender community’s request for a transsexual panel member been heeded. Instead, it was this audacious act of advocacy that saved the day.
Ashley explained her frustration on facebook “Its amazing that Don Lemon, a man who”s been out for only a few months, has the audacity to tell me, a woman who has been seeing a doctor about her transsexual & intersex condition for FIFTEEN YEARS, who I am, & that I’m the “same thing as gay”. Sorry Don, women like me are not here to drag impersonate singers on a gay club’s stage for you to laugh at. I’m a woman, deal with it. And stop the miseducation, it’s harmful.”
