WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) - The organizer of what would have been Wausau's first gay pride parade has cancelled it, saying he has experienced a wave of ugliness in the community.
Daxx Bouvier told Daily Herald Media (http://wdhne.ws/12ZwKye ) that he cancelled Saturday's parade after negative comments from a City Council member and in articles in local media.
Bouvier says people who had planned to be in the parade told him they were concerned about their safety.
City Council member Dave Nutting said at meeting earlier this month that people should boycott the parade or, if they went, turn their backs on "deviant-behaving individuals."
Bouvier lives in California but owns a home in Wausau. He says he has no further plans to organize gay pride events in the city.

drama queen like all of them who should stay up in their cess pit states instead of coming to states out of the north east and CA.
It’s sick and we all know why he cancelled and that is because he could nto get more than a handful to go to this freak parade.
Now shall we have stickers, wear normal straight shirt, have parades etc
I could never understand “Gay Pride” thing: what are they proud of? Imagine a “Herpes Pride”, or “Headless Chicken Pride” march. Absurd from any point of view, except perverted (pun intended).
This is how we should respond to these Leftists: Notice that he has the wealth to own TWO homes at least, but he is sooooo oppressed. How? How is he oppressed? He's living better than 90% of us.
you don’t!!! :D
Cancelling their parade,.......what a bunch of pansies!
Aw, Daxx has his wittle feelings hurt. Oh, please forgive me, Daxx , if “his” is not your personal reference pronoun of choice.
And now the multitude will be denied the fantabulaus exposition of our fine Gay Citizens that want you to see the fruits on parade (oops the fruits of our labor on parade and to include all Citizens as ones of Gay Pride!
Typical liberal...don't agree with their outlook, it's "ugly". He could have said, "We are dismayed about it". No, those who oppose the gay life are "ugly". What a intolerant pr*ck.
I have come to absolutely despise liberal mentality. If the alphabet agencies want to target someone, they should be looking at the mental deficient liberals/socialists/communists who have No grasp on reality. I personally, think they all have gone insane due to their bleeding heart feelings, and have no concept of reality.
Maybe, just maybe a lack of community support for the sodomite agenda?
Aw, gee whiz. A deviant scumbag who actually lives in CA, but wants to put on a perv-parade in WI to celebrate his disease-ridden lifestyle is all disappointed his plans are thwarted.
“Where were the people? Why did they keep their hats on?”

Toleration of the intolerable isn’t enough for them.
They demand acceptance, approval & approbation.
Let us call it preventative ugly against this:
Who wants a parade of plague rats that want to infect your children?
No Daxx, standing up for morality and decency is not "ugliness" Shirtless men marching in leather pants with the seat cut out, that's ugliness. If you want to see real ugliness do a Google image search on "gay pride parade", but be forewarned what you will see is very, very ugly.
Here in Pittsburgh, what started as a three hour parade a few years ago has metastasized into a two-day long Queerfest totally overtaking the streets of downtown, and culminating in an Adam Lambert concert.
Because it’s an easy way of “peaceful bullying”. If you’re not celebrating their “pride” then you must be a bigot. It’s purely about shutting people up.
That said, people from Cali or the north east really think only their opinion should matter, that somehow the rest of the USA isn’t really important. They also don’t realize how big their reality bubble has grown. They don’t see that the rest of the country looks at them and thinks “crazy”. To them, it’s “evolved” or “enlightened”. They’ve moved so far from truth they now have no idea of what it is, it’s out of sight for them to the point where it doesn’t exist.
They now “don’t know what they don’t know”, they couldn’t formulate a coherent philosophy if their life depended on it. I’d love to ask them what morals we should live by, you know, because we’re just “animals” and all (they constantly refer to the animal kingdom to refer to certain behavior as “natural”). OK, so, why have marriage at all? I’m sure “thou shalt not murder” so be thrown out too!! ...after all, to include such a concept in law would be mixing religion and government!!!
