Brian Sims Readying His Gay Minstrel Act For The Media

He just posted this photo with:

"Pre-Pride Parade Shennanigans! Do I make this look gay?!?"

The first openly gay PA House rep.

by Anonymousreply 3709/05/2013

Fuck you, OP. It's convenient to criticize somebody for being an out politician AND willing to appear in a pic with a flamboyant drag queen...when you're doing the criticism from behind a computer screen.

Sims is fighting for our community. What are you doing?

You mean the guy who was the only openly gay college football captain in the NCAA ever?

You mean the first openly gay person elected to the Pennsylvania General Assembly?

You mean the guy who stood up to "God's Law" when DOMA was ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court?

You have the nerve to criticize him as a minstrel?

Tell me, what time did you crawl out of bed for a brunch with the "girls" after spending a night drinking cosmos at your local gay bar while twerking your ass off to Lady Gaga's latest flop?

You have the nerve to call Brian Sims a "minstrel?" You really have some ego, don't you OP?

He's starting to let the attention go to his head. It's a rookie mistake, but unless he wants to be relegated to the Pennsylvania statehouse, he'll put down the Kool-Aid and get serious. Fuck R1 or anyone else who thinks this shit is harmless fun.

He's still rising. I'll watch

If George Bush can indulge in cultural displays like this, I see no reason Brian Sims can't wear a rainbow flag.

by Anonymousreply 508/25/2013

r2 doesn't understand politics, nor the state of PA, nor the entire United States for that matter. This was dumb of him.

by Anonymousreply 608/25/2013

Eat a cunt, r6. I know more than you do about a lot of things, including Brian Sims and politics in Pennsylvania. You must be the OP who is bitter since you've been exposed as a fool.

Metcalf will LOVE that photo. Perhaps it'll make his head explode? If so, then it's all to the good.

Who's Metcalfe?

by Anonymousreply 908/25/2013

Daryl Metcalfe is a very powerful religious fundie in the PA legislature. He stopped Sims from acknowledging the SCOTUS decisions regarding gay marriage on the floor of the House. All requests for speaking are routinely granted, but Metcalfe blocked Sims out of spite.

He's a cunt

by Anonymousreply 1108/25/2013

pretty to look at

by Anonymousreply 1208/25/2013

r12 That he is, my friend. That. He. Is.

by Anonymousreply 1308/25/2013

and I JUST saw him out in the Gayborhood this week!

by Anonymousreply 1408/25/2013

Seriously, r3? You think posing with a drag queen is going to destroy his chances of a national position? You really think that?

by Anonymousreply 1508/25/2013

Eh, I can't get too worked up over this. If he were four weeks away from election day in a hotly contested and close race, then it probably would be best not to give your opponent any ammunition.

But, frankly, the people who aren't going to vote for Brian because he wore this outfit were likely never going to vote for him.

And, granted NYC is not Pennsylvania, but Rudy Giuliani got dressed in drag in public on more than a few occasions.

Hell, as long as Sims isn't sexually harassing anyone (like San Diego Mayor Filner), or using public office for personal gain (like Virginia Governor McDonnell), I doubt the public much cares what silly costume he dons for a Pride march.

I've been posing with a drag queen most of my married life and I keep getting re-elected.

by Anonymousreply 1708/25/2013

He's a LOT handsomer now

by Anonymousreply 1808/25/2013

He's a hot man. I'd volunteer to help his campaign, if you know what I mean.

by Anonymousreply 1908/25/2013

so, so, hot.

by Anonymousreply 2008/25/2013

R1 is 100 percent correct.

OP is an idiot.

by Anonymousreply 2108/26/2013

Anyone have some hot candids of this stud?

by Anonymousreply 2208/26/2013

OP and [r6] know nothing of Philadelphia where Police Chief and eventual mayor Frank Rizzo marched in The Mummers Parade with drag queens. Brian represents Center City which includes the "Gayborhood"

In the linked photo they actually look like Mummers if OP and [r6] have a clue.

OP and [r6] are trying to trivialize what is going to turn out to be a brilliant career--even better than Rudy Giuliani who kicked up his heels wearing pantyhose and who appeared on SNL as an Italian grandmother.

Chris Matthews likes him ... Brian, you got my vote, honey. I can't wait until you're Governor.

Cute bear cub.

More pics!

by Anonymousreply 2508/26/2013

does this pin make me look gay?

by Anonymousreply 2608/26/2013

Here he is being interviewed by another gay cutie who seem to have quite the crush on him.

by Anonymousreply 2708/26/2013

I hope That they got to make out later

by Anonymousreply 2808/26/2013

I just saw the stud-muffin walking down 12th street today looking as gay as a goose.

by Anonymousreply 2909/04/2013

R26's picture is terrifying. Sims is so twee that the Universe just developed a toothache.

It's great that he fights for our rights, but he - like Barney Frank - rubs me the wrong way. It's a mostly latent arrogance, which unfortunately blossoms at the most inconvenient times.

by Anonymousreply 3009/04/2013

he trots down the street with a big smile and lots of helium balloons,

by Anonymousreply 3109/04/2013

Your arrogance has blossomed in this thread, r30. You don't know anything about him obviously.

You sound jealous of him, frankly.

by Anonymousreply 3209/05/2013

most gays are. he's the golden boy

by Anonymousreply 3309/05/2013

That's a boring, insipid 'comeback', R32/R33. Not everyone has to revere what you revere... No jealousy here, and not in lockstep with a mindless drone like you.

by Anonymousreply 3409/05/2013

FF, OP/R6.

by Anonymousreply 3509/05/2013

Nothing angers DLers quite so much as a gay man who's more successful in life than they are.

by Anonymousreply 3609/05/2013

I'm not R32
