It's an Honor Just to be Nominated

Posted by Dan Savage on Mon, Dec 28, 2009 at 1:31 PM


Wow. I don't know what to say. First let me say that it's an honor just to see my name on a list alongside legendary gay rights pioneer Frank Kameny, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow, gay political blogger Timothy "Box Turtle Bulletin" Kincaid, and the one man truth squad that is Wayne "Truth Wins Out" Besen. I'm not worthy. But then to get the longest profile of all of this year's nominees for the annual "Gay Grinch of the Year" award? Complete with "offensive descriptions and web links"? Gee, I don't know what to say. I'm speechless. Thank you, Peter, thank you for this singular honor. You've made my year.

Now I'm not going to ask Blogtown readers to go and vote for me—not in a field that includes gay luminaries like Maddow and Kameny—but you can vote for Gay Grinch of the Year 2009 by emailing Americans For Truth About Homosexuality. A full list of the nominees can be found here. I don't think I deserve to win but I'll take second or third runner-up. Vote now!
