Xtra!, a Canadian website for gays and lesbians, has posted a four-decade recap of what it says is the Toronto Sun's vendetta against homosexuals.
From the homophobic 1970s, with Sun columnist Claire Hoy raising the ire of the homosexual masses, to the Sun's recent Mr. Leatherhead front page.
The first person to post a response to the long list of Sun vs gays examples, says:
"I'm sure something anti-gay was printed in the Star in the 1960's as well. Where's your outrage on that? The Sun is not the gay hating rag it used to be. Xtra! needs to lighten up."
We are sure openly-gay Sue-Ann Levy, the Sun's veteran city hall columnist who is in a lesbian marriage, would agree the tabloid has grown out of its homophobic roots.
Perhaps Sue-Ann will consider commenting on the Xtra! posting in a column, having written columns about her coming out and her marriage.
What is the sexual orientation mood at 333 these days, Sue-Ann? And does the Xtra! site speak for Canada's gay and lesbian community?
We remember the mood of the 1970s, when there was a tangible hatred of the Sun among gays and union members. You would think the mood at 333 has since mellowed now that there are employees who are openly gay and, gasp, union members on the payroll.
