Gay Mayoral Candidate Carl DeMaio Booed At San Diego Pride

While thousands cheered as uniformed service members marched in last weekend’s San Diego Pride parade, another participant got a less friendly response: City Councilman Carl DeMaio, an openly gay man running for mayor, received boos and cold shoulders from protestors angry that he’s accepted donations from groups fighting against marriage equality. DeMaio has previously said he won’t “push the gay special agenda” if elected.

Local videographer and LGBT-rights activist Syd Stevens captured the scene and posted it on YouTube.
