Mixner Denounces Gay Apartheid


An infuriated David Mixner published an Election Day morning-after post on his blog, in which the gay activist leader denounced as "gay apartheid" the widespread practice of putting LGBT rights to a popular vote through state ballot initiatives.

Mixner exhorted readers to "call this campaign against us what it is -- Gay Apartheid." He continued with a stern message for political leaders including President Obama.

"Refuse to allow any of our fellow Americans, President Obama, or our allies to view this as a political issue [whose] time hasn't quite come," he wrote. "America is in the process of creating a system of Gay Apartheid. We will not quietly sit and accept it. All over the place, this nation is creating one set of laws for LGBT Americans and another set for all other Americans. That is the classic definition of Apartheid. Either our political allies are for Gay Apartheid or against it. If they are against it, they must fight with us and no longer duck like President Obama did in Maine and Washington. There is no half way in fighting Apartheid."
