Riga, Latvia’s queers are gearing up for this weekend’s gay pride event. And so are their mortal enemies, the homo-hating non-profit, No Pride! Not only have they taken to the streets to urge the government to put an end to the festival’s gay ways, but they’re sending emails to rally more troops. Unfortunately, they’re targeting the wrong people: us. We just received this note from No Pride preacher, Reverend Vadim Privedenyuk:

Please, make sure you help people of Latvia!

Latvia is the country that oppose same-sex marriage. The constitution of Latvia clearly says that. If you are one of those, who support NATURAL FAMILY (not same-sex family), you can count on our support in the future…


And we’re not the first Americans the No Priders have attempted to enlist.

UK Gay News reports that although homo-haters have been urging foreign folk to stay away, they’ve allegedly invited former American football player Reverend Ken Hutcherson to join the fun. You may recall that Hutcherson came under FBI fire after claiming the White House sent him to Riga as the “Special Envoy for Adoptions, Family Values, Religious Freedom, and Medical Relief”. What kind of bullshit bullshit title’s that? If you’re going to say the White House sent you on a special mission, at least try to make it believable.
