NYC LGBT Leader Screws BDS Movement. LMAO
The weird alliance between the anti-Israel Boycott-Divest-Sanction crowd and certain members of the LGBT community just got f*cked hard by New York-based gay adult-film producer Michael Lucas:
Lucas emerged victorious in a battle with Manhattan’s Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender Community Center over its support for an “anti-Semitic” group.
Lucas went on the attack. “I’m preparing to organize a boycott that would certainly involve some of the Center’s most generous donors,” he said in the release. “It was an inexcusable decision on the Center’s part to associate itself with a hate group like Israeli Apartheid Week.”
Less than eight hours after Lucas drew his line in the sand, the Center relented. “We prevailed!” Lucas crowed in an e-mail to supporters at 8:34pm. “According to an e-mail I just received personally from Glennda Testone, executive director of New York’s LGBT Center, it has been determined that ‘this event is not appropriate to be held at our LGBT Community Center.’”
Israel “is a tiny island of democracy in the jungle of the Middle East and Israeli democracy greatly needs our support. It is something that is important to preserve,” Lucas wrote.
