WEHOville - Is the CEO of Grindr opposed to same-sex marriage? Is Stoli vodka really owned by a Russian tycoon in league with the homophobic Vladimir Putin? Was Matthew Shepard beaten to death because he was gay? Did the Muslim terrorist who shot and killed 49 people at the Pulse nightclub in Florida do so because they were gay?

The answer is no, no, no and probably no. But the more interesting question is why the LGBT community, which makes us a substantial part of West Hollywood’s population, and the media that purport to serve it are more interested in publishing allegations of homophobia than in publishing the facts.
