By the way, for those of you who want to continue to educate the public about this, there will be a Cameron Village Kiss – In! – Hell No to Harassment! – Oh Yes to Love! on SUNDAY OCTOBER 17, 2010 at 1pm …on the public sidewalk across from the Flying Biscuit Café. It will be peaceful and we will be handing out leaflets and holding up signs, etc.
Those who want to assist meet at 1pm at 2001 Clark Ave., in the Wachovia Parking and adjacent public sidewalk.
Many of us are very pleased at Cameron Village's response to the security guard's inappropriate and discriminatory action and are not seeking to draw attention to Cameron Village but to the fact that this happened and that there are many of us who are willing to take a stand for ourselves and the respect we deserve by our fellow citizens, whether they are security guards or not.
As a homeowner in the Cameron Village condos and a gay woman who pays a lot in homeowner dues to York Properties, I am pleased to know that the officer was disciplined for his inappropriately aggressive behavior and that CV leadership has affirmed a welcoming and accepting environment for everyone. If they had not done this, I would have been meeting with all the York Property managers I knew and like Bob, would have boy -- or shall we say --girl -cotted business in Cameron Village. They did the right thing and I commend Caitlin and her girlfriend for their courage in speaking out about this injustice. I agree that they deserve some gift certificates and that the Flying Biscuit staff deserve to get more business from the LGBT and allied community for taking a stand for what's right.
