Clear Channel Rejects Incredibly Tame St. Petersburg Pride Billboards

Clear Channel Outdoor rejected two innocuous billboards of friendly gays from Florida’s largest gay pride march in St. Petersburg on June 26. What scared them off?

Gay biracial couple with a kid: cool. Fierce drag queen: awesome. Homos with their foreheads touching: scandal!

Clear Channel says they’ve run more provocative campaigns before, but they also have a long history of censoring “undesirable messaging” such as ads critical of the Iraq Invasion, 9/11, and Yeehaw McStarWars.

So fine, St. Pete’s Pride just won’t spend cash with Clear Channel promoting that scary “gay skin touching” billboard. Or any of them.
