Letter aired contempt



This letter is to the editor who gave space to David Rogers to air his contempt of LGBTQ2 people’s political views and sexuality. As a member of said community, I am saddened that you thought it was OK to let someone “dis” a marginalized community. If Rogers were to have done this to other discriminated against communities, I’m sure this letter wouldn’t have made it into the papers. This is the level of discrimination we are still dealing with every day. And to publish this during Pride Month, double shame!
