Wise up Cleveland, Todd Saporito has benn scamming the Gay Community for decades. Everything him and his minioms touch is tainted, dirty, and dishonest. All one has to do is look back there is a massive trail of wrong doing and dishonesty. It started with Volleyball, the Synergy Group, and noe Cleveland Pride. Todd Saporito is nothing more than Bernie Madoff in cheap designer knock-off's.
This individual exists soely to take from the Gay Community and those that keep giving just allow him to continue. What a disservice and embarassment, Todd Saporito is a constant black eye to Cleveland, OH.
Wow, this is a poorly written and researched 'piece'. Beginning with the first sentence: "At least a fraction..." Lazy, vague language. And it continues from there. Fortunately, not for very long as it just skims the surface. Why not try and understand in greater detail the challenges a project like this might entail? By the writer's own admission, the extent of the tenant research includes speaking with a whopping (1) person. Then in proper journalistic practice just assumes what the other tenants would say, rather than taking that extraordinary next step of speaking with a second tenanat. This 'story' could have been a tweet "25th Street Loft delayed because of old windows". La-zy.
Unfortunately, there will be a number of known sexual predators attending, including Rikki Schulte, the notorious date raper. As this is actually a birthday party for the promoter, and not really a benefit show, the promoter feels no obligation to ensure this is a safe space, especially for victims of sexual assault. Those who support Womans' Shelters would be better donating directly to the charities, and not risk their safety at an event where part of the proceeds will literally go to sexual predators.
nowhere. it would *screw* RTA.
The summer of dreck continues.
What became of all those bigots who were on the wrong side of history?
Was hired muscle needed to prevent the day from being spoiled?.
If someone had threatened to "bust up a white woman's wedding to a nigger"...it would have been immediately classified as a hate crime and there would have been serious consequences, even if it never made the news or went viral on the intertubes.
Best wishes to the newlyweds,...and mazeltov...from an ally.
Chuckles the Clown.
Today I learned that protesting is apparently tied in socioeconomic status as well as drug use.
MM you took the time to post bigot comments online when you are likely an unemployed, meth addled, hack. Why not use this time to get a job?
Come to Toledo!!!
Iselldope21 ,your ignorance is annoying!! if you look at the reports,the minority lately has been more female African Americans... And I'm only going to assume you probably smoke pot so how would you like it if you were buying pot dipped in battery acid..Ur already making good money off of sick people,so purposely putting cut in that kills people is beyond greed, its the lowest of low, u have no place being around civil people .locked up ,or even better u shld get a hot shot of ur own supply cuz ur a scum bag and the world won't miss u.😉
I congratulate and celebrate you.
Black and Beautiful!!!
And I'm black and proud to be your auntie.
I would like to know who actually made the decision to cancel. Some of you are blaming the city, some blame homeland security, some blame terrorists. My suspicion is that it was a lack of planning and failure to work with the city on the part of Cleveland Pride, Inc. Their press releases have been very carefully worded to not accept any responsibility but not say who really is responsible. Everyone should be asking questions and working to see that this never happens again.
How can you lable this Anti - Trump Activists?! You don't even know who it was so how can you label him an activist? Why say they waited till after RNC? It was an incident between 2 people with different view points and your headline tries to make more of it. Do better scene
One could state that the citizenry deserves better.....but they have continually voted into office the silly and incompetent buffoons who have tossed the city into a flaming pit.
One of the worst ideas ever for this potentially great waterfront property. No aesthetic vision.
Why isn't the city more directly involved? Why is the openly gay member of council who makes being gay a political issue in his favor and who represents the ward Pride is in doing nothing to ensure Pride exists this year?
I occasionally practice in East Cleveland. There are serious and very dangerous security flaws at this court. While it is unfortunate, I'm not surprised by Judge Dawson's decision to close the courtroom in a case where emotions would be running high.
We don't need a CEO to have our Pride! I will be by the rock and roll hall of fame August 13th at 12pm with my family showing our Pride! Spread the word and let's unite our community!!!
We need some protesters to have a die-in because of projects like this killing our lakefront.
It is also worth noting that during the regular program year (September-June) Trinity has a more traditional choral Eucharist at 11:15am with the same preacher and sermon as the earlier services.
I set up and ran a corporate sponsored booth at Cle Pride 2002, and the organizers would not give me a receipt so I could get reimbursed... Led to me losing my job... I believe Bryna Fitch was CEO and hoped the new CEO would clean up their act...
