When the Fayetteville, Ark., Gay Pride Parade steps off on East Street Saturday on its way to the Wal-Mart parking lot, it will be led by a young man who has made a career out of fighting for gay rights.
Make that a young boy. Will Phillips, the grand marshal, is 10 years old, and his presence has thrust Fayetteville's Gay Pride Parade into the national spotlight.
Ordinarily, the annual parade is pretty low-key, residents say. The mayor issues a proclamation, the police close a few streets and a few hundred people show up, something that Skip Descant, who covers the city for the Northwest Arkansas Times, says is a lot for a Saturday morning in the summer.
Booths are set up in the Wal-Mart parking lot; people linger to hear a few speeches in the hot sun; sometimes there are a few jeers; and then everyone goes home early. It is a pretty low-key affair.
But the selection of young Will, who last November refused to stand and recite the Pledge of Allegiance in school to show his support for gay rights, has changed all that. This year the parade has drawn national attention, and it's promising to tread the line between farce and confrontation.

The exploitation is absolutely disgusting.
Did Will’s two daddies put him up to this?
There will be at least one psychiatrist who will have his kid’s college paid for by this little guy and his parents.
Best quote from “Home Alone”:
“Kid’s is stupid...”
Well, “indoctrinated kid’s is stupid...”
More insane indoctrination...
He told his teacher to jump in the lake, don’t thread on his rights!
10 Yr old have rights to dis-repect adults..Who knew!
The boy is a moron anyway.
“who has made a career out of fighting for gay rights.”
Every kid wants fame. Even for evil things.
He is fighting for an abomination against G-d. Why doesn’t he understand that he will bring calamity to this country if he succeeds?
10 years old????? Hell, the kid can’t even get a “pee hard.”
I bet those queers just drool at the thought of tender meat.
Daddy and Daddy, or Mommy and Mommy, or Uncle/aunt Ted, put the kid up for that.
What shame, what animals.
He’s ten years old for goodness sakes.
He has no idea what “gay” means - if he really does, then he’s been subjected to child abuse.
And what part of the pledge does he disagree with? Liberty and Justice for all? One Nation under God?
kids and sex is the next big cause for the perverts
Jon Stewart, host of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, to hire professional wrestler Mick Foley to protect Phillips this weekend.
If I find out that anybody has hassled this young man or teased him or called him a wad of any sort, I and perhaps a few of my friends will come to his school and bring a world of pain, Foley warned
For a group that’s trying to fight the image of being a bunch of pedophiles, this is not a very smart idea. It seems that many gays constantly flaunt the perversity they claim to eschew. They want to be both “in your face” and accepted at the same time. It’s very odd, if not queer.
So Jon Stewart hired a wrestler to protect the kid.
If I find out that anybody has hassled this young man or teased him or called him a wad of any sort, I and perhaps a few of my friends will come to his school and bring a world of pain, Foley warned.
Does that mean Foley is going to go to the school and beat up a little kid? His peers are only ten.
You’d think if they were going to exploit the poor boy, they’d at least correct him so that he doesn’t sound so misinformed.
You have to be kidding me bookmark.
Pedophiles are just starting to demand their rights. I’m sure that will put the big P in POTUS, but how will the GLBT acronym go then?
When I was 10, I didn’t know what sex was. It was a better world.
