Why? Because they're drag queens? or because they're gay (or maybe they aren't)? What exactly makes this "embarrassing"?

I'm pleased that AS is sponsoring the event.

Pax and employees and shareholders come in different shapes and colors. It's good to see AS supporting events in the communities in which they do business.

You hear that? That's the thrashing death claws of the kind of people that are quickly fading into irrelevance. Welcome to the 21st century.

I actually didn't mind the prayer cards, but sponsoring Drag Queens is much much cooler.

sooooooo

the prayer cards were an outrage? And this is wonderful?
Not going to comment or condemn or condone either one because personally I dont really give a rats butt. Just saying, how tolerant and diverse really is AS......................................
