KING by Shaun Parker for Sydney Mardi Gras: A Review

KING Shaun Parker 3

Being a gay man in 2019 really is a revelation. In 30-or-so years, gay men and women have gone from the ostracised outcasts of abnormality, to something few people bat an eyelid to.

This is why gays needs guns

We know a lot about America. Their president is scary, their gun politics are even scarier and the fact that fact year, 52 people were murdered because they identified as LGBTIQ+[1] is abhorrent.
