SAY WHAT NOW? Gay man arrested at gay festival for “booing” right-wing gays

EXCLUSIVE: A gay man says he was arrested by Victoria Police at a gay festival in Melbourne over the weekend for “booing” a gay contingent from the Liberal Party.

49-year-old St Kilda local, Tony Pitman, is a self-declared “long-time LGBT rights activist”.

Over the weekend, like many within Melbourne’s LGBTQI community, he had joined in the celebrations and events of the annual Midsumma Pride Festival and March.

With thousands of others, Mr Pitman was one of the many faces who lined up to watch the colour of this year’s march along St Kilda’s Fitzroy Street.

“Gather your friends and allies together … to rejoice in our diversity and achievements, at Victoria’s annual queer march,” the official website for this 2018 Pride March reads.

“Mobilise against marginalisation with Midsumma Festival, in this march of celebration and solidarity, as we unfurl our flags, frock up and keep fighting the ongoing issues facing our communities.”

However, the afternoon of Sunday, January 28 didn’t go quite to plan for Mr Pitman, who while watching the parade ended up being arrested for “booing” a bunch of right-wing political party members.

The activist claims the arrest was politically motivated and an attempt to censor his critique of the Liberal Party which had included a gay contingent as part of this year’s march.

Homosexuality is as old as human civilization, however the promotion of it is designed to abolish our sense of morality.

"Going door to door they will be trespassing on private properties. When ordered to stop and disregarding order, they will be acting as armed robbers. I would advise assholes about it."
