The MSM goes gay, gay. gay

Just when you thought you had enough of Marriage Equality and everything gay on this blog, the MSM is starting to ramp up its own stories:

Kiwi entertainer Lynda Topp will marry fiancee, Donna Luxton, in Staveley this month.

It was reported that exclusive rights to the wedding have been granted to a women’s magazine, and it is understood the event will be held at the couple’s shared business, Topp Lodge, northwest of Ashburton, which offers fully licensed functions for up to 80 people.

The report said the couple will join in a civil union and consider it a marriage.

A distressed New Zealand soldier took his life in Afghanistan just hours after confessing his feelings for a male colleague of junior rank, a Sunday Star-Times investigation has found.

The soldier died despite being in the care of his sergeant, who at one point frisked him for a weapon.

Corporal Douglas Hughes, 26, was on his second tour of duty to Afghanistan. Hughes’ family believe the death was preventable and are critical of the actions of the sergeant.

They believe he was bullied because he was gay and that his death, in the early hours of April 3 at the forward patrol base Romero in Bamiyan province, raises questions about frontline attitudes to gay soldiers.

The New Zealand Defence Force likes to promote its acceptance of homosexual lifestyles. Much was made of the NZDF contingent that marched in the Auckland Pride parade last month.

The above shows that the debate is far from over.  The attempts to have gay people treated in the media and in normal life in a way that makes their gayness irrelevant have borne some fruit, but progress is slow.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
