LGBT Chamber of Commerce endorses Bloomberg despite Mayor's appeal of gay marriage ruling

NYC LGBT Chamber of Commerce betrays the LGBT community by endorsing Republican Mayor who used litigation to overturn gay marriage ruling in New York.

Gay Sell-Outs: 'Are you listening????'

Last weekend, a few hundred thousand people from across the nation chartered buses to assemble in protest against the Obama administration's unfulfilled campaign promises to support equality for the GLBT community.

Meanwhile, here in New York City, Mayor Michael Bloomberg has a history of not only ignoring equal rights, but also filing litigation to overturn advances toward equality. For example, thanks to Mayor Bloomberg, same-sex marriage cannot legally be performed in New York.

FLASHBACK TO 2005: After NY Supreme Court Judge Doris Ling-Cohen issued a judicial ruling that the right to marry the person of one's choosing in New York was both a privacy right and a liberty right, her decision was to be appealed by order of Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Yet, in the face of the Mayor's expressed opposition against gay marriage, here comes the NYC LGBT Chamber of Commerce, which has chosen to endorse Bloomberg in his ill-fated third term campaign for mayor.

All those New Yorkers who chartered buses and made the 4 hour trek to DC should pile on the R train to City Hall and demonstrate against Mayor Bloomberg -- and the LGBT Chamber of Commerce.

Sell-outs !
