Intermission: Gay Barbarians Take Over Marcus Bachmann's Clinic

by Nona Willis Aronowitz

July 23, 2011

GOP primary candidate Michele Bachmann's husband, Marcus, is a now-famous homophobe.  A man who once likened LGBT people to "barbarians" on the radio, he runs a clinic in Minnesota meant to "convert" gay people to being straight.

Yesterday, a group of "gay barbarians," outfitted in Conan-like costumes, went to the clinic demanded to be disciplined. The group, led by glitter-bomber Nick Espinosa, chanted "You can't pray away the gay, baby I was born this way!" after being told that Marcus wasn't in that day. Score so far: gay rights movement 2, Bachmanns 0.
