Pride traffic

It is not the increase in TSF traffic to Sue-Ann Levy's out-of-the-closet lesbian column from June of 2007 that is surprising.

Being able to read her complete column online a year later without being asked for 12 bucks for the PKP piggy bank is the pleasant surprise.

So you can catch up to her 2007 outing column and her 2008 first anniversary open gayness column in the Sunday Sun in one keyboard sitting.

Pride week, proud woman.

It is ironic that in the 1970s and into the 1980s, homophobic Toronto Sun reporters and columnists lost the respect of Toronto's gay community to the point of hatred.

The Sun was widely known on the street as anti-gay and anti-union. Today, it devotes a lot of space to Pride Week activities, has an openly gay city hall columnist and it has a union.

Can't we all just get along? Yes, Rodney, we can once the bigots and racists make their exits.
