Dishing with Mark And Carrie - August 16th 2012

BUY-Cott Not Boycott
Wednesday we were sitting at KFC on Kennedy Blvd. enjoying our chicken dinner. We looked around the room and there were many other GLBT people doing the same. We were not boycotting Chick-full-of-hate. We were buy-cotting at KFC who serves chicken without hate. Several years ago when ronda storm's hate took away our GLBT rights in Hillsborough County, there was a buy-cott started. We think it's time to start one again! There are 2 great organizations to use to know who to BUY from, they are: The Tampa Bay Business Guild FMI TBBG.Org and The GaYBOR District Coalition who's membership is listed on GaYBOR.com.
We are very disappointed in Judy Genshaft, USF President. Yesterday ABC 28 Action News caught her eating at chick-fil-H8. When asked why she was eating there her reply was the chicken salads are only 150 calories. I think this is very insensitive to GLBT students, staff, instructors & alumni. I think she should lead by example.
This week local radio station 93.3 WFLZ has called for "Hamburger Mary's Appreciation Day"! Awesome! Come on out and enjoy one of the "Hate-Free" Chicken Sandwiches (a portion of the proceeds go to an equality cause). This is GREAT! We think it's time for the GLBT Community to do this everyday! The next time you're at a business without a GaYBOR Sticker or not a member of the TBBG ask them WHY NOT?
The Must Have APP
Why didn't anybody think of this app before? There is Hurricane App now available for free from the American Red Cross. This is a must have for everybody. There is one special feature on it that will notify your family that your OK after a Hurricane. Check out the app today at RedCross.org.
Break Out of Your Box!
One of the funniest, wildest, unusual things we have ever done in a Gay Bar was going to a Professional Wrestling match at Bradley's on 7th! At first we were very reserved then in 10 minutes we were shouting and involved with the surroundings crowds! They actually install a full complete wrestling stage completely covering the dance floor! Everybody loves Mohamed, the door person at Bradley's. On wrestling nights he will becomes "BONECRUSHER MOHAMED STUDD." A little bird told us that Carrie might be in the ring the next time too..."Oh MY!"
