Gay Mart vs. Hetero Burger

Wilton Manors, Florida, the second gayest city in America, (2010 Census), seems to be accepting of everyone and their opinions. In one of the town's newest monthly publications, The Islander, a letter from a concerned citizen was published raising concern that the streets were running the risk of resembling " Times Square, circa 1982."

 

The author, identifying himself as a "future burger entrepreneur" writes of his dislike of the approved signage along Wilton Drive.  Naming businesses like "Gay Mart", "Rock Hard", and "Gaysha", the 45 year old opined that the youth of the community need not see such business titles as they commute to school.  Read the letter to the editor here, shared by South Florida Gay News.

 

 

Is his concern valid? Have businesses in Wilton Manors, and other gayboorhoods, been allowed to be a little too liberal with their signage? Or is this a case where we quote, "we're here, we're queer, get use to it?" asking him if he knows he is living in the second gayest city in America and it should be expected. 

 

 

My advice to the writer is, if you don't like it, fix it.  Become involved in the local politics and work to change the wrongs to rights. Or see if his Hetero Burger Business would get approval. 

Wilton Drive is not the gay explosion found in Provincetown during Carnival, but it is a more residential area than the tip of Cape Cod.  Then again, he should be thankful the Key West restaurant, Better than Sex, has not come to town.

      hay closet case

      Both the Associated Press and the United States Navy have apologized for the incident

      The "fag bomb" was a U.S. military fighter-mounted bomb (a GBU-31 JDAM), photographed aboard the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise in October 2001 during the United States' invasion of Afghanistan while in the Arabian Sea. On October 11, while being readied to an F-18 Hornet for deployment in an air mission above Afghanistan, the bomb was defaced with a graffito (a "message" to the bomb's targets) by an unidentified U.S. Navy sailor with the message "HIGH JACK THIS FAGS." The term HIGH JACK referred to the September 11 attacks one month prior, which utilized hijacked passenger airlines. The September 11 attacks led to the military action against Afghanistan.

      FAG: Navy term (1) Fighter Attack Guy: F/A-18 Hornet/Super Hornet pilot or naval flight officer ("NFO"). (2) Former Action Guy: Any SO, SB, EOD, ND, or FMF Recon Corpsman or any other parachute-qualified member who is in a position where they cannot maintain their jump quals, or goes into a different warfare community.

  2. Somebody forgot that gay also

    Somebody forgot that gay also means something in the line of jolly.

    One could also live a life instead of looking for excuses to get angry.

    As a gay man that owns a business in Wilton manors, I think the tongue in cheek names are fun. Plus, don't straight men get "rock hard"?  I kept my business name more open to all but as a business decision. Come visit us at Infinity Lounge. The best drinks on Wilton drive.
