Gay mayoral hopeful Carl DeMaio booed at San Diego Pride ParadeTop Highlights, Breaking News Monday, July 23rd, 2012
San Diego-based videographer and LGBT rights activist Syd Stevens shot video of protesters at Saturday’s San Diego LGBT Pride Parade, most of whom shouted boos at, while a few turned their backs in silence to, City Councilman Carl DeMaio for what they see as the openly gay mayoral candidate’s turning his back against fellow members of the LGBT community. Critics in the LGBT community are incensed by DeMaio’s accepting campaign contributions from foes of marriage equality and other civil rights issues important to lesbians, gays, bisexual people, and transgenders.
DeMaio’ campaign officials did not respond to requests for comment on the Pride parade protest.
