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.

This daxx homo should stay in cali where they seem to revel in this sort of perversion..
It was a very, very, very, very, very, very bad idea.
There are homos everywhere. He should stay in that USA country where they elected one as President.
I still can’t figure out what they’re so “proud” of.
Why don’t they go have their parade in Dearbornistan?
Your answer lies in a google search for california + “proposition 8” + violence.
If it’s to be like any other “gay pride” parade, talk about a wave of ugliness.
Oh, that's a terrifying threat to the participants' "safety."
It really is
he has experienced a wave of ugliness in the community.
An attempt will be made to attract some better looking gay men to town for next year’s parade.
thanks for the ping pal
Only America tolerates the gays. Why is that?
never understood either why they have parades where they act like freaks, have flags and stickers or tell people what they like sexually.
They used to say when they wanted civil unions that it was their private business and then they said they wanted more than don’t ask which gave them privacy.
they’re hypocrites and liars who are obsessed with hatred and intolerance
I will never forget being trapped in the gay parade on the way back from the airport in a car with my mother - it was unimaginably grotesque, and I’m speaking as a person who works in the arts and has has had close relationships with numerous gay artists my entire adult life. The men in the parade were also openly aggressive and belligerent toward my 80 year old mother...these are people consumed with hatred.
can’t stand any of them and when I confront them now after seeing their stickers I just think of them as stupid and thick
every word is nail on the head.
These people come from the north east and CA think they have their purpose in life to make us accept them, they leave their cess pit states and then act all victim when we don’t go along with their way of thinking.
They live in a bubble and once they leave that bubble they call us stupid and racist because how dare us little ones who are not from there think differently
Organizer cancels Wausau’s first Gay Pride parade because of “wave of ugliness”
FReep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
forgot to mention but living here I get to meet many form those areas and they just think that their view is the only view, that we have to accept them and they are always right and I;m sick of hearing how they did it back in their state.
Then puss off as we do it differently here.
If queers wanted their sham marriage then why do they move to states which do not have it?
Yeah right. He cancelled because he couldn't get any sponsors and wasn't going to make any money off the deal.
Who’da thunk that a guy with a name like “Daxx Bouvier” would be organizing a Pride Parade?
LOL! Yeah, good luck with that in Wausau, WI. Slim pickin’s to say the least.
