Nick Espinosa Poured A Box Of Glitter Over Newt Gingrich
From Phil Reese at the Washington Blade:
"A prominent Minnesota gay ally activist made quite a stir Thursday night when he stormed a book signing hosted by the Minnesota Family Council and greeted the guests of honor–Newt and Callista Gingrich–with a box of glitter confetti.
“The book signing was part of a larger event with the Minnesota Family Council, who are the anti-gay group pushing the marriage amendment [to ban same-sex marriage]. The amendment passed the senate last week–shocked and upset.”
Nick Espinosa is passionate about getting attention for what he sees as an urgent issue facing the LGBT community.
As he poured the confetti over the top tier candidate for the Republican nomination for President, Espinosa shouted “Feel the rainbow, Newt! Stop the hate. Stop anti-gay politics. It’s dividing our country and it’s not fixing our economy.”
