The Daily Word in Saved by the Bell and a butt full of cocaine

By Ty Bannerman [ Wed Sep 3 2014 9:07 AM ]
The Daily Word

Another APD lapel camera somehow stopped recording during a fatal shooting.

Ricky Gervais is kind of a prick, but no surprise there.

Cee Lo Green is actually a huge prick and maybe a rapist, which is more surprising and makes me sad.

Vice magazine continues its hard-hitting reporting by answering the question: What happens when you put cocaine in your butt?

Two UNM physicians are going to kill a bunch of grasshoppers.

The New York St. Patrick’s Day parade will be cooler and gayer this year.

And, for the children of the late 20th century, here are 100 things that apparently happened in that Saved By the Bell movie that you didn’t watch but secretly kind of wanted to.

Hate-free chicken sandwiches

By Marisa Demarco [ Wed Aug 1 2012 3:41 PM ]

If you’re paying attention to Mike Huckabee, you know that today was Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.

Huckabee is pissed off that other people are pissed off about the poultry merchant’s homophobic positions. The chain has long been a supporter of anti-gay marriage efforts, and its CEO said recently that he is firm believer in biblically sanctioned unions. “He took it to a new level,” says Pat Davis of ProgressNow New Mexico.

CEO Dan Cathy’s comments spurred backlash, with some cities suggesting Chick-fil-A could peddle its hate hens somewhere else.

Anyway, Huckabee wanted folks to flock to Chick-fil-As around the country today and fill the restaurant’s pockets with more money for doing anti-LGBTQ work.

ProgressNow New Mexico was ready. Cow couple Adam and Steve led a protest in front of Albuquerque’s latest addition to the Chick-fil-A franchise on San Mateo and Montgomery. They brought 100 free chicken sandwiches provided by the gay-friendly Roma Bakery & Deli. The protest fare was devoured in 20 minutes by supporters who showed up to stand alongside Albuquerque’s active LGBTQ community, says Davis.

Davis counted more than 100 people on the sidewalk at one point. A giant chicken showed up to march in solidarity with the cows. A new LGBTQ-friendly business— U-Swirl—brought some froyo over for the kids dancing with the protesters.

“We just wanted there to be an option for people in Albuquerque who don’t agree with that stance to express themselves,” Davis says.

Alibi Flashback: Gay Pride!

Loud and proud through the years

Equal rights are equal rights. And for the life of us, we can’t understand why people of all sexual and gender orientations aren’t allowed the same benefits, aren’t given access to the same opportunities, and don’t receive the same thundering applause for ccomplishing great things. It doesn’t compute. Journalists that we are, that lack of logic is an irritating grit to us. But we’re making pearls out of it.

There’s a yawning lack of coverage on gay and gender issues by New Mexico information outlets—and our frustration compels us to bridge that gap ourselves.

As the most widely read alternative weekly in New Mexico, we’re loud and proud about the local LGBTQ community. We do it by unearthing and reporting stories that don't get told anywhere else. We see the Alibi as a megaphone held aloft to mouths that have been excluded in traditional media. It's our mission to make those voices heard.

We don’t just talk the talk about supporting New Mexico LGBTs, we walk it—or rather, we build parade floats and glide down the street on them.

In honor of this week’s Pride events, here’s some colorful coverage from years past:

“I really hope that we can get more people who are outspoken in their own right,” UNM student Lilly Lawrence-Metzler says. “Not everyone needs to march with a sign to be an activist.”
