SiriusXM: Blogger Takes To The Show To Name Names On Secret Anti-Gay Facebook Group
The list of the big names are a no shocker to me:
Oklahoma Legislator Sally Kern
USA: Fred Karger Restarts Quest For Maggie Gallagher’s Elusive Husband
Back in 2010, gay GOP presidential candidate Fred Karger wrote an open letter to National Organization for Marriage founder Maggie Gallagher, asking her to reveal the whereabouts of her husband of 20 years, Raman Srivastav.
Now Karger, whose campaign is all but dead, is raising the issue again. He’s sent another open letter asking why she never wears a wedding ring or brings Raman to public functions:
I was on Thomas Roberts’ show MSNBC Live with the founder of the National Organization for Marriage, Maggie Gallagher. We were on MSNBC so she could try and defend the treasure trove of “Confidential” NOM documents that had just been uncovered as a result of the 2009 investigation that I got launched against NOM in Maine.
Maggie and I were in separate studios although we met afterwards for this photo and a chance to visit. I asked Maggie if she was still living in New York, and she told me that she moved to Washington, DC nearly three years ago. What about her husband Roman [sic] Srivastav?
She allegedly married this East Indian man 19 years ago after living as an unwed mother for 11 years. No one has ever seen Maggie with Raman. Wonder if they really did get married? If so, maybe so he could get a green card?
Queerty put in a call to Gallagher to check about Raman’s whereabouts, but it went straight to her voicemail. We’ll update you in the unlikely event she should respond.
We also gave GOProud Jimmy LaSalvia a ring. Said LaSalvia: “I only met Maggie Gallagher once in 2010 at CPAC. She came over to say hi and that was about it. I don’t know much or anything about her family.”
Nobody does, Jimmy. Nobody does.
No pictures of him seem to exist, and Maggie has never brought him to a political event, unlike NOM’s other “family-oriented” leader Brian Brown, who trots out his clan at every opportunity.
Anyone who has pictures of Raman or evidence that he exists (or doesn’t) can send it to us at email@example.com. Now that we’re thinking about it, researchers just confirmed that many anti-gay crusaders have repressed gay feelings. Is it possible Maggie Gallagher is—gasp—a lesbian?
Or, even weirder, since apparently no one has seen Raman and Maggie together in the same room, could it be they’re actually the same person?
“Moron Of The Week” Inductee Maggie Gallagher Thinks NOM’s Scandal Is No Biggie
USA: Maggie Gallagher’s Son Debuts New Song At NYC AIDS Fundraiser
Tonight Maggie Gallagher’s eldest son Patrick will debut a song at an AIDS fundraiser at The Duplex, a gay cabaret and nightclub in Manhattan’s West Village. For those unaware, Patrick says that he identifies as straight despite working in what is arguably the single gayest industry in the world. His Twitter profile reads: “Librettist, Lyricist. I love the Knicks, Stephen Sondheim, the Yankees, Breaking Bad and the Green Bay Packers with equal fervor. I don’t fit in your box, man.”Our Time is a new works concert series created by Musically Human Theatre Productions Producing Artistic Director, David Norwood. The series offers emerging musical theatre composers the chance to showcase a variety of songs from different shows, as well as stand-alone songs that were not written with a particular show in mind. You haven’t heard showtunes like these before. An exciting blend of Sondheim and Pop/Rock, this generation is truly taking the art of musical theatre to the next level. The concert is also a benefit for Broadway Cares / Equity Fights Aids.
Note that Gallagher’s credit does not appear on the linked page, but does appear on apparently earlier versions of the bill such as the regrettably tiny one I found and posted here.
Here’s how The Duplex describes tonight’s show.
Patrick Gallagher’s song writing partner performs regularly at Manhattan’s gay piano bars such as Don’t Tell Mama.For years some of us on this side of the screen have discussed the “Patrick situation” and wondered how his love for musical theater, where he lives and breathes in a virtually completely gay environment, may have helped create the creature that is his mother. Hell, he even once performed in the chorus for a West Village production ofSodom: The Musical, starring Village People member Randy Jones. (I inquired and Jones has no memory of Gallagher.)
Here’s an excerpt from a 2011 story about Patrick:We offered Patrick the opportunity to tell his side of things, but given the obvious personal conflict he feels about the situation, he declined. Though Patrick doesn’t want to comment directly, it has become clear that his views differ from his mother’s. According to Patrick, Maggie has been very supportive of his career and has not obstructed her son’s goals and dreams – like a mother should. One thing Patrick did say, which I don’t think he’d mind sharing is “Maybe one day I’ll write a hell of a musical about this.” Patrick’s a good guy who doesn’t deserve to be in the middle of this – but we feel that his and Maggie’s story is an important one that demonstrates the strength of a “non-traditional” family.
The question remains: What, if any, responsibility does the LGBT activism world have to involve the innocent children of hate group leaders? Is this a “hands off” situation? Or do we throw Patrick in Maggie’s face at every opportunity whether he’s gay or not?
I’d say yes, throw her son in her face at every chance you get. Whether he’s gay or not is irrelevant. The fact that he’s tolerant enough to work at the gayest industry ever, should teach her a lesson and maker her think twice before she spits hatred again. It’s unfortunate to put families in such an awkward position, but this is how progress is made: by confronting each other’s views.
“Moron Of The Week” Inductee Maggie Gallagher: Gay Teen Suicides & Ban On Gay Marriage Has No Connection
“The left, which thought it had buried Santorum years ago, is going after him with a hatred unmatched. They hate him with that special ire reserved for a man’s virtues, not his vices. They will go after him not just to defeat Rick Santorum, but to smear his good name, to associate it with their own muck, to take a decent and honorable man and try literally to make his name mean mud. They will not succeed.
“The American people, I promise you, are not going to reject a man they would otherwise support because he believes in traditional Christian views of sex and marriage. Especially when he believes-not just with his words, and not just with his vote, but with every action of his soul and his life-that a man’s job is to support his children, born and unborn, to commit a loving and faithful marriage to one woman, and to devote himself to being a good dad. That’s Rick Santorum.” -Slaggie Gilamonster, jawohling to the anti-gay hate industry’s endorsement of Frothy Mix.

“Moron Of The Week” Inductee Maggie Gallagher Spearheads Launch Of NOM’s New Anti-Gay Hate Group
NOM has unleashed yet another foul creature intent on thwarting civil rights, the Marriage Anti-Defamation Alliance, which will operate under the hooves of Maggie Gallagher, who only yesterday stepped down as NOM’s chaircow. From their about page:
The goal of the Marriage Anti-Defamation Alliance is to create a supportive community for those who have been threatened for standing for marriage, to nip the climate of fear being created in the bud, to expose for fair-minded Americans on both sides of the debate the threats being made, to conduct high-quality qualitative and quantitative research documenting the extent of the harm, to develop legislative and community proposal to protect Americans right to engage in the core civil rights: to organize, to vote, to speak, to donate, and to write for marriage. Isolated and alone, we can be suppressed and intimidated. Together we are too many to be treated as second-class citizens.The group’s first spokebigot is Frank Turek, the corporate trainer who claims to have lost regular gigs because he’s published several viciously anti-gay books. Good As You has the real story: “What NOM won’t tell you? That this Frank Turek goes WAY beyond simply opposing marriage equality for same-sex couples, and instead promotes the idea that gay people are embracing harmful, ‘illegitimate’ and ‘changeable’ behavior — behavior on par with that of sociopaths, alcoholics, or even gay-bashers.”

Well, just cause it was about time. But here’s the reason.
GetEQUAL Vs. Maggie Gallagher
GetEQUAL ambushed Maggie Gallagher outside of this morning’s DOMA hearing to give her their “Anita Bryant Award” for bigotry. Watch Gallagher tangle with a GetEQUAL member after he denounces her hatred.
Maggie denounced her hatred at a DOMA hearing. Here’s her award:
This award concept is brilliant. I have already a long list people I could nominated for next year’s recognition.
