820 Words of Wisdom for Brother Robbie

Waking the Red's resident westerner pens a welcoming open letter to ex-Columbus Crew man Robbie Rogers on his new life, complete with wisdom and advice!

Frank Parlato hates babies

The publisher of Lenny Palumbo's newspaper offers up some "thoughts" on the homophobia controversy. I respond.

Lenny Palumbo is a Piece of Garbage

I've said it before and I'll say it again: "You Can Play" needs to start ACTUALLY fighting homophobia. Like with fists and stuff.

It's already well into Pride Week in Toronto, but despite talk of action, TFC has still done nothing to recognize the LGBT community in the city, while teams like Sporting Kansas City and Houston Dynamo have. So East Side Stand Up is making light of this issue, in my comic character's debut. This is the first of two parts, see the rest of it tomorrow.

Sharks Gameday: You Can't Play

I expose the ten biggest homophobes in the NHL.

You Can Play, No Matter Who You Are.

This one I caught through a friend of mine (and from Gay4Soccer) -- but it seems Maple Leafs' GM Brian Burke and his son have founded an organization to help wipe out homophobia in the locker room. Let's hope we'll see some TFC players get on board with this one!

Dear TFC: We Need Your Help

For all the work of groups like NOH8, It Gets Better and others, we've heard nary a peep from Toronto FC on this matter -- even though the team plays out of one of Canada's most open cities. Waking the Red's John Leung calls them out, and says it's time for TFC to take a stand -- and how the players can do their part for equality!

David Testo on Canada AM (1/16/2012)

I know it's not completely related to Toronto FC, but I feel this is an issue that will be with us for a good long while. It's good to see David Testo taking the lead in helping to combat homophobia in sports -- now that he is fully out, it is a grand sight to see him helping in this method. Keep fighting the good fight, David -- myself and the team here at Waking the Red are with you. (P.S. The interview intro with Marci Ien starts at 6:00 in, if you want to cut all the outdated news out.)
