    'AMERICAN BANDSTAND' DANCERS: DICK CLARK ENGAGED IN 'WITCH HUNTS' TO PURGE SHOW OF GAYS

    BY ANDY TOWLE

    Excerpt:

    Frank Brancaccio (pictured, via this interview) and Eddie Kelly (pictured below, from this interview), two gay former American Bandstand dancers tell the National Enquirer that late host Dick Clark had his producers conduct "witch hunts" to "purge gays from the ranks."

    That was the television show for which Barry Manilow sang the theme song?

    The First Thing My Mom Did When She Learned I Was Gay... and the 'Miracle' That Occurred After
    Posted: 01/09/2014 8:49 am

    Growing up as a gay kid in the south was not easy. The constant fear of people discovering who you really were and the inevitable shame that would fall upon you and your family dictated how you lived your life everyday. Luckily for me, I was fortunate enough to move to places where it wasn't a constant daily reminder that I was an abomination. For my family, however, they still live in ground zero of intolerance for the LGBT community and have the unique pressure of having a well known gay relative. When I came out, they came out.

    For years they have had to deal with the judgmental looks and constant condolences from friends and strangers as if I had died. "I'm so sorry, you are in our thoughts."

    Barry's version of "Bandstand Boogie" was used by the show as its theme song starting in the late 1970's, but the version most people remember, from the earlier years of the show, was an instrumental, done by a big band.

    I saw this online a while back and thought it was great:

    Advice columnist Amy Dickinson responds to a parent who wrote in upset that her son ‘won’t listen to reason’ and ‘stop being gay’:

    “You could teach your son an important lesson by changing your own sexuality to show him how easy it is. Try it for the next year or so.”

    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    In the Bachelor thread we're talking about how Juan Pablo has referred to gays as perverts. He's apologized now...English is his second language and apparently if I use google translate, "pervert" will come up as a compliment in Spanish...

    Anyway, I came across this article about nine other celebrities and the anti-gay things they have said. Most of them I had heard about, but not this one from Bret Easton Ellis:

    The attention-loving American Psycho writer blasted Glee in 2011 with the offensive tweet, "I like the idea of Glee but why is it that every time I watch an episode I feel like I've stepped into a puddle of HIV?"
    Oh, YUCK! What an A**HAT!

    To be honest, situations like this are when I find it difficult to weigh the freedom of religion against the freedom to screw whoever you want.

    The 'puddle of HIV' comment is a disgusting and sad attempt at attention seeking, however.
