Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton took some time off the campaign trail this weekend to hang with Oregonian homos. Clinton and about 2,000 of her closest queers donned their reddest, gayest apparel for the Red Dress party, a drag event that raises money to help fight HIV/AIDS.
Chelsea doesn’t appear to be wearing a dress – a party requirement – but she did spend a few hours getting to know the boys before bouncing off to Philadelphia.
Children of presidential candidates is nothing new. In 1976, “Chip” Carter, son of Georgia’s govenor Jimmy Carter, was a participant in the San Francisco Gay Memorial Day Trike Race, and had signs announcing that his father was going to speak at a S.F. downtown rally a few days later.
You go, Chelsea! I love her.
I knew I should of went to the party!
Chelsea in 2032!
Let continue to keep these two royal families in charge forever!
Chelsea isn’t the only one to “get down with the gays”. There is plenty of video of Hillary at many gay pride parades and events. I show her,personally, at RFK staduim (Tipper Gore too…playing drums) at the concert in DC for gay pride several years ago..right along with us..and she wasn’t even running for an office….she has and always will be there for us more than any politician…well, other than Barney Frank, maybe. I can’t imagine being a lesbian (or a gay man) that didn’t put my full support behind her. We have to have someone who recognizes us and understands our needs in office for a change…it’s time!!
I meant “saw” her at RFK. Great concert with Pet Shop Boys, Melissa Etheridge, George Michael, Indigo Girls, Shaka Chan, and tons of other celebs showing up…Ellen, back in the Ann Heche days…anyway, Hillary and Tipper were there to show support and I think that is very commendable, because they didn’t have to be and no one would have thought anything if they weren’t. It just stuck with me all this time and I hoped I could someday repay that favor…support me, I support you…that’s the way I roll. And it is my turn now…in ’08!!
