Drag Queens Against Spain’s Homophobic Prime Minister Candidate Mariano Rajoy

Mariano Rajoy, Spain’s People Party leader and prime minster candidate, has pledged to undo the nation’s same-sex marriage law if elected — even if the Constitutional Court declares the law perfectly fine. Which means he’s invited the wrath of The Gays. And the drag queens.

Gay activists are already lashing out at Rajoy, but now it’s time for a little flair: Drag queen Shangay Lily heckled the candidate last night during a book presentation, shouting, “Enough homophobia in the PP” while waving around a sign. Girl was kicked out.

    wow. I guess Spain is not as open as I thought. What are the chances this man will actually get elected? Any Spaniards who visit this board to give us an inside look?

    Spain is more open & most Spaniards embrace the fact that they were way ahead of so many other countries, especially USA, in treating all citizens equally.

    But… (you knew that was coming didn’t you?)

    Spain, despite the unholy alliances between the Katholic Khurch & previous dictators, still has a solid cultural base of Christianity. Spain even had a great history of interwoven culture with Muslims (Africa is about 20 miles off the southern border to Morocco) before the Katholics purged the nation.

    Spain is a beautiful place full of juxtapositions in people, place & politics. Go there!

    I heard from some other peoples experiences including my sister who live in Spain for over a year that the country is one of the most prejudiced nations especially against the visible ethnic minorities.
