Spoof: How to Win a GLAAD Award

Hat tip to the Dallas Voice's reporter John Wright for blogging today on a cute, but way-too-long, video satire on how to get an award from the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.

The vid was made by Israel Luna, the creator of the semi-controversial flick "Ticked Off Trannies With Knives," which seems destined to never break out of the festival circuit.

It would have been even better at a shorter length, but regardless of running time, I had a few laughs from the vid:

As is so often the case when a Gay Inc entity comes in for either a gentle ribbing or hard-edged criticism, a dreary supporter of GLAAD made this comment at the Dallas Voice blog:

This is an immature and tasteless attack on an organization that has done so much for our community. It’s not about celebrities and parties, it’s about changing perception. [...]

Trust me. GLAAD could disappear tomorrow and the gay community wouldn't suffer from its demise.
