The San Francisco-based Center for Sex & Culture bills itself as striving “to promote creativity, information and healthy sexual knowledge.”
AFTAH’s reoccurring “Queer Indeed” feature will be dedicated to “gay” and sexually radical LGBT events that are so bizarre that — dare I say — normal people couldn’t make them up if they tried. Keep in mind that in the strange world of sex radicals like Carol Queen (who sent out the e-mail below looking for volunteers at a San Francisco “Masturbate-a-Thon”), adherents to traditional (biblical) morality are the “extremists.”
One more thing: if you are tempted merely to laugh at the antics of the Libertine Left, consider that self-styled “progressives” dominate the “sex education” business and are pushing misguided ideas like the encouragement of masturbation to very young children in our public schools. Here is what SIECUS (Sexual Information and Education Council of the United States) advocates for teaching about “masturbation” to early grade school students ages 5-8 (see pages 50-52 on SIECUS’ online “Guidelines for Comprehensive Sexuality Education”):
Topic 2: Masturbation
Subconcept: Masturbation is one way human beings express their sexuality.
Level 1 [ages 5-8]
• Touching and rubbing one’s own genitals to feel good is called masturbation.
• Some boys and girls masturbate and others do not.
• Masturbation should be done in a private place.
– Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH

Unfair, Unbalanced and Afraid:
Fox News’ Growing Pro-Homosexual Bias and the National Gay & Lesbian Journalists Association

This is a Special Report published by America’s Survival, Inc.; www.usasurvival.org; 443-964-8208 (Cliff Kincaid, president), and authored by AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera, in advance of ASI ‘s August 20, 2013 conference, “The Crisis in American Journalism and the Conservative Response.” Following is an HTML version of the ASI report, which is published as a PDF HERE. The Endnotes contain live web links. Click on photos and graphics to enlarge.
By Peter LaBarbera, exclusive to America’s Survival
News Corp., the parent company of Fox News and Business Channels, has heavily funded the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA), a pro-homosexual advocacy organization in newsrooms. Here a News Corp endorsement ad appears in the program for the 2009 NLGJA “LGBT Media Summit.”
It is difficult to overstate the impact of wide-scale liberal media bias in the advancement of the pro-homosexual and pro-“transgender” revolution in American society. In the last two decades, media imbalance (and de facto censorship) on the issue has morphed into frequent media celebration of homosexuality — thus leaving citizens starved for impartial and accurate information on this critical topic. “Journalism” has become pro-homosexual propaganda, with many media stories appearing as if they were written by LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) activists. By effectively joining the “gay” activists’ crusade, major media outlets – and even “conservative” Fox News — have contributed greatly to the growing pro-homosexual political correctness in U.S. culture. This in turn has fueled even more aggressive militancy among pro-LGBT groups and bloggers who are lobbying the media to block social conservatives from TV appearances, etc., on the grounds that such anti-homosexual-agenda voices are “hate groups.” The result is the further degradation of journalism that has contributed to Republican and conservative ambivalence on issues like same-sex “marriage” and allowing open homosexuals in the military. So bad is the media groupthink on homosexuality that even self-described “conservatives” like Glen Beck and Tucker Carlson have either endorsed or made positive soundings on “gay marriage,” or gone silent on LGBT issues.1
The degree to which the “mainstream” media have become promoters of the homosexual- and transgender activist movements is astonishing. Below is a graphic from a recent Pew Research Center study analyzing media coverage surrounding the U.S. Supreme Court’s hearing in March 2013 of two cases related to homosexual “marriage.” Pew labeled a story as “supportive” of homosexual “marriage” if it included at least twice as many pro-“gay marriage” statements as opposing statements – and vice versa for stories labeled “opposing”2:
Note the extreme one-sided bias in favor of homosexuality-based “marriage” in most of the categories – and the finding that all media (including Fox News) except conservative talk radio were heaving biased toward “gay marriage.”
With pro-“gay” attitudes dominating newsrooms, few journalists seem willing to pursue stories that might offend America’s powerful and well-funded homosexual activist lobby.3 This would include investigating:
- how escalating “gay power” represented by pro-LGBT “nondiscrimination” laws subject even very young children to inappropriate pro-homosexual “lessons” in school, thus undermining both children’s innocence and parental rights4;
- the growing HIV crisis among “gay youth” (a study of young “men who had sex with men” in 21 cities found that one in 10 tested positive for HIV in 2008);5 and
- how pro-homosexual laws including legalized “civil unions” and homosexual “marriage” negate Americans’ cherished religious and First Amendment liberties.
On the latter point, there is now a large and growing body of evidence that pro-homosexual laws and corporate “diversity” policies oppress Americans’ freedom of conscience to oppose homosexualism and live out their religious and moral beliefs, including the once universally-held Western idea rooted in the Judeo-Christian teachings that marriage is between one man and one woman (see below).
Schieffer gets a lesson on the growing ‘gay’ tyranny
CBS’ Bob Schieffer was unaware that Christians across the nation are being prosecuted by the state for living according to the dictates of their faith by refusing to participate – through their own businesses — in immoral homosexual “marriages.”
A recent appearance by Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” exposed how ill-informed the major media are when it comes to the threat that government-backed “gay marriage” (and pro-homosexual “sexual orientation”) laws pose to religious liberty. Perkins writes that with the Supreme Court’s de facto invalidation of California’s Proposition 8 amendment defining marriage as one-man, one-woman [emphasis added]:
“…people are about to experience (if they haven’t already) the profound loss of liberty that accompanies this march down the same-sex “wedding” aisle. … “Face the Nation” host Bob Schieffer — like so many Americans – was surprised to hear that business owners (and wedding vendors in particular) are being persecuted, and in some cases prosecuted, for refusing to participate in a same-sex “marriage” ceremony. .. “I must say this is under my radar,” Bob told me. “I haven’t — I haven’t heard this.” And he’s not alone.”
Perkins writes that “the media isn’t covering the stories of these victims — not because they don’t exist — but because liberals recognize their potential to swing the debate.” See this footnote for the examples he provided of moral-minded Americans whose freedom has been jeopardized by their opposition to homosexual “marriage” and State-enforced “gay rights.”
This report for America’s Survival, Inc., documents the rampant and often egregious media bias in favor of the homosexual-bisexual-transgender activist agenda. It puts special focus on the growing (and sometimes radical) pro-homosexual bias of Fox News personalities like Megyn Kelly and Bernie Goldberg. Why concentrate on Fox? Because Fox News has inordinate influence with conservative Americans and with the Republican Party — which is also retrenching its opposition to “gay rights.” And because Fox holds itself to a high standard of being “Fair and Balanced” – i.e., not sharing the notorious bias of the dominant liberal media.
This report will also investigate the role of the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA; motto: “We’re Here, We’re Queer, We’re on Deadline”) in distorting and molding news coverage on homosexuality- and transgender-related issues. Like other major media, Fox News through its parent company, News Corp., is a long-time funder of the NLGJA.

WARNING: HIGHLY OFFENSIVE GRAPHIC
“In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.” (Romans 1:27)
Below is the “official” promotional poster for the Folsom Street Fair, an annual, sadomasochism-celebrating street festival in San Francisco. The “fair” is notorious for its open-air perversions, mocking of religion [also see this], sadistic whippings, “master-slave” couples, and full nudity — and the latter will be allowed again this year due to an exemption granted to FSF to a new anti-public-nudity law passed by city supervisors. Words can barely convey the evil captured by this image — a rebellious wickedness that comes from glorifying sin in defiance of the wholesome boundaries for sex established by God. Folsom is also the creepy cousin of “gay pride” and “diversity” — there would be no Folsom Street Fair were there not first a “gay” revolution, with its ground zero in the homosexual Mecca of San Francisco.

Dave Smith of Ilinois Family Institute led the grassroots campaign to stop a homosexual “marriage” bill in Illinois. The bill was stalled despite Democrats possessing super-majority control of both House and Senate.
This is Part One of our interview with David Smith [click HERE to listen], Executive Director of Illinois Family Institute, which led the grassroots, pro-family coaltion effort to stall a homosexual ”marriage” bill, SB 10, in Illinois. (Proponents of the bill, lacking the votes, did not call it for a vote by May 31, the last day of the legislative session. However, SB 10, which passed the Senate, remains alive to be called when legislators are back in session, through the lame-duck session in January 2015.) This interview was recorded June 6, 2012. Smith tells AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera and co-host John Kirkwood that the key to victory was the diverse grassroots opposition to the bill, especially the strong opposition from Black and Latino Christians. He describes how half the Black legislators in Springfield (all Democrats) ultimately declined to back the homosexual “marriage” bill, and calls its failure to pass in an Illinois General Assembly with Democratic super-majorities in both House and Senate a “miracle.” Smith also notes the well-funded lobby campaign on behalf of the same-sex “marriage” bill — including dozens of paid lobbyists – which far surpassed (monetarily speaking) that of pro-family advocates for natural, man-woman marriage. He said that the ability of grassroots citizens to stop SB 10 “marriage” in deep-blue, Democratic-dominated Illinois shows that “gay” activists and pundits are wrong in asserting that the national triumph of homosexuality-based “marriage” is “inevitable.”

One would expect the world’s most famous “gay” Mecca to be perverse, and it surely is. Photos: Americans For Truth About Homosexuality.
Folks, it’s street scenes like this one – in the heart of San Francisco’s “gay” Castro district — that led the city’s suffering citizens to push successfully last year for a qualified ban on public nudity. But as the saying goes, old habits die hard.
I shot these photos on Easter Sunday, March 31, 2013, near the corner of Market and Noe streets. (I ventured to the “gay” Mecca to cover the homosexual drag queen group Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence’s uber-blasphemous “Hunky Jesus” contest, which was cancelled and later rescheduled due to rain.) San Francisco’s prohibition of public nudity – which exempts baudy street festivals like the city’s annual “Folsom Street Fair” – went into effect Feb. 1 and is being challenged in court by nudists.
The ban doesn’t seem to be tightly enforced, as these bare-bottomed man-bunnies were ’hanging around’ for quite awhile in plain view – on Easter Sunday, no less. They were standing outside a venue hosting a “Zombie Christ” dance party/”haunted house” timed to mock Christ and bash Christianity on the most important Christian holiday of the year. AFTAH will have more on that in another post. (Permission granted to use photos provided credit given to “Americans For Truth.org”) – Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH

“Kinky” sex includes “master-slave” role-playing in which the dominant person leads his partner-slave around like a dog. This photo (nudity covered) is from San Francisco’s 2008 “Folsom Street Fair.” Click to enlarge. Photo: AFTAH.
In 1650, Harvard’s orginal charter affirmed how the “good hand of God” had led men to make gifts for the creation of Harvard College to educate youth in “knowledge and godliness.”
Three hundred and sixty-two years later, Harvard wants to make sure student perverts (I’m sorry…kink advocates) are officially part of the school’s “diversity” framework. Kink is the hip term for, among other things, sadomasochism — which glorifies consensual sexual violence and degradation. You know, people gettting their body whipped to a bloody pulp for sexual satisfaction, or locked in a cage, or a “mummification” suit, or getting shocked with “electro-torture” devices–as a turn-on.
Or how about this bit of “alternative sexuality”: couples play-acting as dominant “Master” and submissive “slave,” complete with a chain and collar for the latter (see photo). So much for sexual “liberation”…This is truly sick sex.
And to think that many on the Left see this as “progress.” Here’s what a similar “kink” student group officially recognized by the University of Chicago brought to that campus: a “Leather Library” sadomasochism traveling exhibit that exposed youth to the most heinous sexual perversions known to mankind. (Which included, as this writer discovered, homosexual “snuff film” literary porn — eroticizing sexual torture to the point of murder.)
The sixties radicals who started this Sexual Revolution got one thing right when they preached: “Question Authority.” Their revolution has failed abysmally, and now it is they — the academic (and media/Hollywood) overlords of political correctness and sexual anarchy — who must be overthrown if our nation has any chance of recovering its greatness. How about we begin with a Common Sense Revolution that puts an end to madness like this? – Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH
The following is excerpted from an Associated Press report:
Harvard recognizes group promoting safe kinky sex
AP / December 5, 2012
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — Kinky sex has been admitted to Harvard.
The nation’s oldest university has formally recognized Harvard College Munch, a group promoting discussions and safe practices of kinky and alternative sex. The school has no record of a similar group being recognized in its 376-year history.
The Committee on Student Life recognized Munch on Friday, making it one of 400 independent student organizations on campus. The decision occurred more than a year after members began meeting informally over meals.

San Francisco’s new public nudity ban will still allow public nudity at annual events like the notorious Folsom Street Fair.
“The ban would prohibit most nudity in public, but it would continue to allow marchers at special events, like the San Francisco Pride Parade, to bare all. Children under 5 can be naked in public and sunbathers can continue to strip down on nude beaches.”–Reuters
Folks, I guess this is progress — but only in San Francisco would a public nudity “ban” still allow lots of public nudity — e.g., at homosexual events like the annual “gay pride” parade and Folsom Street Fair. AFTAH has led the way in exposing the “anything-goes” libertine atmosphere of the world’s most infamous ‘Gay’ Mecca, with our periodic exposés of the deviant and bizarre goings-on at Folsom (including homosexual orgies on the street as cops stood idly nearby).
We think it’s instructive to show where liberal “tolerance” leads, and how homosexual-dominated cities like San Francisco and Chicago end up celebrating perversion in its various manifestations, even to the point of lawlessness. “Gay” power has its degenerative consequences.
In 2008, I ventured out to San Francisco with Linda Harvey of Mission America and Diane Gramley of American Family Association of Pennsylvania to hold a press conference condemning the public nudity at Folsom Street. We immediately were shouted down by homosexual activist Michael Petrelis [see this YouTube video], who applauded public nudity (and public sex) — thus demonstrating the homo-fascist (or homo-communist) mentality to perfection.
Of course, the city’s LGBT-intimidated police allowed Petrelis to invade and disrupt our press conference.
Anyway, it appears that the annoyance, disgust and public spectacle of exhibitionists letting it all hang out (anywhere) were too much even for San Francisco’s jaded residents, heterosexual and homosexual alike. Now if only the city would start reining in the equally serious problem of sex clubs (“gay” orgy centers) that encourage reckless, anonymous promiscuity and facilitate the spread of disease. But that would be way too “intolerant” for a city like San Francisco that’s so far to the Loony Left that it had to grant a special (“gay”) exemption to pass a ban on going nude in public. – Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH
The following is excerpted from a Reuters article:
San Francisco tells nudists to get dressed
By Ronnie Cohen, Reuters December 4, 2012
SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – San Francisco city leaders gave final approval on Tuesday to a ban on public nudity, a measure aimed at curtailing displays of nakedness that some residents and business owners say have gotten out of control in the famously tolerant city.
San Francisco Board of Supervisors’ action at City Hall prompted about a half dozen angry protesters to strip down to their socks.
