Gay Day Gathering

Thursday, June 26, 2003 12:43 PM
I think it would be a neat idea to have a "gay day" gathering at an amusement park for all enthusiasts. Not that this is a "promotional" thing, just something where we can all get together and hang out for the day and have a good time.

Any ideas??

Would help if you listed some parks and time frame (mid July, late August, early Sept, etc)
Just a suggestion.
Would non-gays be allowed to attend?
if not it is no big deal and I will just wait till somebody holds a big, bearded, heavy-set guy day at a park. ;)

I'm not touching this thread with a 20-foot pole.

Is that a Q-bot in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

Whose 20 foot pole?

Any leave my Billy goats out of this. Just because I REALLY like petting zoos...

By the way J, I think I'd qualify for several of those.

I've been to Knott's twice for their "Gay Days." It was mega-crowded and I got one ride [Ghostrider] in 4 hours. Thanks, but no.

Ok look I don't want to sound mean but I have a problem with this gay day thing. Disney has it, they tried to get rainbow flags put across one of the most historically signifigant bridges in north Fl and now someone else wants another day? I have a gay Brother in law and I respect him and his partner of the last 29 years beyond all words but, what have they done to deserve a special day? Is there a Afro American Day? A parents day at the park? How bout poor unwed mothers day?
C'mon this is getting rediculous how bout we just have one day where everyone is treated with respect? Even better yet how about we all learn to do that everyday. That's why I have given 12 years of my life to this country and I don't ask for special Days or treatment. All I ask is for a thank you and to be treated the same as any one of you would want to be treated.

So let's stop trying to get special days or other things, and let's start trying to get everyone to realize that no matter what a person deserves respect even if they may not live in the same manner as we do.

Well then you'd have to start a BARE day for the rest.

"So let's stop trying to get special days or other things, and let's start trying to get everyone to realize that no matter what a person deserves respect even if they may not live in the same manner as we do."

The interesting thing is that days devoted to religious groups, social groups and other associations of people have been a part of amusement parks for a long time. For instance, look at Kennywood's calendar:

http://www.kennywood.com/ev.cfm

They have lots of different ethnic days and have been doing so for quite some time. Is it too much of a stretch for Disney and other parks to include newer social groups in thier social days if they see fit?

In addition, don't forget to look at this from a business standpoint. By having a Gay Day a park like Disney or Knotts is creating a program which brings them press and profit. In fact, a lot of parks pick days that have historically been duds for some reason and put a targeted day on that date to draw additional guests, revenue from per-caps, etc. Going from a hum-drum day attendance wise to a banner day (as a lot of the Gay Days and ethnic days have been) can make a difference at the end of the year, especially if you reach non-traditional attendees. While it is a nice thing to do, these parks are not doing it out of altruism. They obviously see a benefit from them and with a rainy season like we have had so far this year every extra dollar spent counts.

You are right about that but I would like to think that that day doesn't mean anything more on that day than it does any other time of the year. I don't know about you guys but I(whom has never gotten shot at, or even really put in a situation any more dangerous than being on an aircraft carriers deck during flight ops) appreciate the wonderful sacrfice that me brothers in arms suffer for our freedom.

You say we have veterans day does that mean you think that gays and those brave men and women in uniform are on the same level? While it takes courage to outwardly admit to a lifestyle that is ridiculed and often met with violence, it is not the same as leaving your family for months on end to defend the freedom of this country or even other countries. I don't begrudge anyone a chance to live thier life as they see fit but it I also don't see why they deserve a special day just because of that lifestyle.
