Major Fairness News: First Director Hired

The Fairness Campaign has officially announced the hiring of its first Director, Chris Hartman. Most in the press will recognize him as John Yarmuth’s campaign press secretary from the 2008 General Election, but he’s been involved in politics and his community for nearly a decade. He’ll oversee fundraising, communications, leadership development and legislative strategy for the almost two-decade-old civil rights group.

More on Hartman: He served in 2005 as an AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteer In Service To America) in St. Louis, Director of Philadelphia’s Grassroots Fundraising for the Democratic National Committee in 2004’s Presidential Election and as Producer and Founder of performance companies Project Improv in St. Louis and Louisville. Hartman holds a Master’s degree in Drama from Washington University in St. Louis, where his thesis, Stage Families of Choice: Emergence, Evolution, and Future of the American Gay Male Family on Stage, focused on American gay male family history and analysis.

Page One & The ‘Ville Voice On TeeVee

God Jesus we move our head and eyes around way too much on the teevee. Plus it’s way worse when we’re super-sleepy. You likey?

Like how I over-dressed?

Stephen crosses his legs just like me. Because he is as skinny as me– dangerous for him, because I’m likely to maul anyone who tries to outdo me on the fat-free front.

And Rick got a haircut!

Stephen did a good job being a dirty librul, Rick offered some fancy insights and I said positive things about Mitch McConnell… and shared the truth about Katie King and what a cluster-eff THAT mess is.

Discrimination Suit Filed in Louisville – McDonald’s Employee Called Customers “Faggots”

Come on, people! We have a city-wide Fairness Ordinance for a reason! Discrimination on the basis of perceived sexual orientation is about the stupidest thing one can do. Stop this bull! McDonald’s should fire the insufferable, bigoted woman for using slurs. We may just hop down there this afternoon to take a film crew and ask some questions.

The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a complaint with the Metro Human Relations Commission. God knows if it’ll ever get anywhere, but they’ve filed it just the same.

So check this out: Ryan Marlatt, Teddy Eggers and three of their friends stopped at the McDonald’s at 420 East Market Street (telephone 502.589.3753, manager is Phyllis) for lunch on July 26. While waiting for their food, a service worker behind the counter referred to them as “faggots” while talking to a coworker. The customers made it clear they weren’t there to be insulted and requested to speak with a manager. While continuing to wait, the woman behind the counter repeatedly called them “faggots” in front of other patrons, also referring to them as “cocksucker” and “bitch.”

So classy. A McDonald’s employee calling some gay dudes “cocksucker” and “bitch.”
