MARCH MADNESS

Mark Zuckerberg Marched At San Fran Gay Pride With Over 750 Facebook Employees

facebook-san-fran-pride-2013-1Stamping the crowds at San Francisco’s gay pride parade with ‘likes,’ Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg led 750 of his colleagues — which is ten times more than two years ago and is over 15% of its staff, according to the Wall Street Journal.

“This was one of the most electric, amazing, emotionally overwhelming Pride marches for me in my almost 20 years of marching. … Cheering and bouncing around with over 750 of my coworkers in San Francisco today [was an] unforgettable experience,” Ben Grestzfield, a Facebook Software Engineer, wrote on his Facebook page.

    AWE. That is actually… quite human of him.

    Much thanks.

    Cool. Very cool. Not a big fan of Mark’s but I tip my hat to his participating in the parade and obviously encouraging his staff at Facebook to do the same.

    Did he have a Chris Christie float hovering above him?

    1EqualityUSA makes a great point. Gay marriage passed both chambers of the New Jersey congress and got vetoed by Chris Christie, who Zuckerberg held fundraisers for. He fundraised for the single person who denied people the right to get married. For the guy who criticized the repeal of DOMA. For a bigot. You can come to the parade, but if you’re bankrolling bigots and keeping loving couples from marrying, you’re a bigot.

    @andyinchicago: This is why Ted Olson should never be welcome to Pride since he helped back anti-gay candidates while working on the Prop 8 case.

    @1EqualityUSA: Lets not forget that Facebook sell information about left wing activists to Blackwater.

    Would he still have participated if he wasn’t the head of Facebook?

    This is pretty cool of him to do. But, seeing that one million moms use his Facebook website, and since I can’t post on their page, they banned me, I wonder how they feel about using Facebook when the owner supports equality and gay marriage? They sure go after other things, I wonder if they will express their disbeliefs to Zuckerberg?

    1,000 hormonal moms are irrelevant. Chris Christie has the power to veto equal rights and make a run for the Casa Blanca with the financial support of straight, white, wealthy men like Mark Zuckerberg, so he is not irrelevant.

    Chris Christie doesn’t have a fat chance in hell of winning 2016. It’s going to be Hillary all the way baby!

  • manjoguy

    Hillary in 2016? You’d have to be crazy! Just what our country does NOT need. Have you forgotten about Benghazi already?!
