The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) recently identified the worst anti-gay and anti-transgender voices of 2008, and New York Post cartoonist Sean Delonas made the list.
Delonas, who has been the subject of three GLAAD calls to Action, was sited for a cartoon that he completed after openly gay actor George Takei announced his plans to marry his partner in California.
Delonas drew crew members from ‘Star Trek’, which Takei appeared on as Sulu, looking on in disbelief as Takei exchanged nuptials with a man. Spock comments on the marriage, saying “Totally Illogical, Captain.”
“Unfortunately, anti-gay activists and media pundits continued to make outrageous claims about our community, and many media outlets persisted in using problematic and defamatory language that affects the way that people view the LGBT community,” said GLAAD President Neil G. Giuliano.
“That’s why now, more than ever, we need to capitalize on our community’s momentum, make our voices heard and work towards more fair, accurate and inclusive representations of our lives.”
