Homo A Pride Story

I was gone last week, so I didn’t get a chance to Slog this pride story, which was sent to me by Pasquale Santos. Seems that this is the season for unhappy homo encounters on public buses.
I decided to take the bus downtown to see the parade. This transient guy got on in the free ride zone and when he found out the bus would have to take an alternative route because of the parade he went off on a homophobic tirade.
It went on for minutes and he was seated right behind the bus driver. The driver said nothing. I asked to get off the bus, but the driver said I had to wait for the next stop. I’m not a confrontational person but I confronted the homophobe. I did use strong language, but it was appropriate.
The bus driver sided with the transient telling me that he was entitled to his opinion. Maybe the most upsetting thing was that the driver was homophobic as well. We came to the stop, where I was met by group of protesters waving signs in my face saying that Jesus was coming back to make the “gays” pay. Not sure what it all means, but thanks for listening.
