    Oh man the UK is so much better for LGBT rights. USA is too entrenched in religion and tradition and needs to change. Christianity blows.

    This episode was great as always but one thing jumped out at me during one of the early interviews and also during the Mayor's statement... What really stopped me in my tracks was when I heard "It's the one day of the year when it's ok to be gay." Whoa. How scary is that? It might be a figure of speech for some, but the implication there is that it's somehow not ok to be gay (or trans, I guess) the other 364 days of the year. When the Mayor spoke he seemed to be almost defending the right of GLBT people to be treated like human beings. While I know his heart is in the right place, at the same time I can't help but notice that the Mayor feels that right is in need of defending as valid. There seems to be this sense in Massachusetts (and maybe elsewhere for all I know tho I don't see it here in NJ) that the default position is that there's something inherently wrong with being LGBT among both LGBT's and straights. It can't help but feel wrong to me. Shouldn't the default position be that there is nothing wrong with being LGBT and those who think there is are the ones out of step with modern reality? Both statements seem to infer a casual acceptance of an everyday second class status for LGBT people even as they celebrate LGBT Pride, and that just rubs me the wrong way.
