Ladies and gentlemen, we give you Ari Gold, the gay Rosa Parks.
“The driver told us if we wanted to continue sitting together, we had to sit in the back.”
Frustrated, the driver called for a New York state trooper!
“Then he pulled over,” says Gold. “The state trooper came and asked what the problem is, and he said that the way were were sitting was making him uncomfortable and he wanted us off the bus.
“The trooper said nothing was illegal and he needs to continue to drive.”
Gold made an announcement to the other passengers, explaining that they had been pulled over to wait for the state trooper because he was holding hands with a man.
They all seemed deeply pissed at the blatant homophobia.
Gold — the gay Rosa Parks — will be filing charges.
Did the driver of the bus in question never attend fourth grade? This story almost writes itself!
