Update: Paul Gogarty has left his version below, which I believe and I’m altering the post to reflect this.
Via email from Deputy Gogarty:
I would suggest that the so-called quote be altered as it is factually incorrect and maliciously slanted. I never said keep putting pressure on the Green Party. ‘They’ refers to Fianna Fail, although the rest of that passage was not what I said.
It’s a bit like Peter Pan isn’t it? Apparently Paul Gogarty of the Green Party told someone that gay people need to make more noise if they want equal rights. He complained not enough gay people have been contacting the
Green Party Fianna FÃ¡il conservatives to beg and grovel for equality.
they (Fianna FÃ¡il) as a party have had little input from members of the gay community, and that there has to be pressure from all of us in order for any changes to be made.
So we all clapped harder and louder to help tinkerbell so maybe all the gay people have to work that little bit harder for the hard of hearing
Green Party Fianna FÃ¡il. I know LGBT Noise are useless but they do what they say on the tin and Christ almighty David Norris never shuts up. How exactly should the begging letters be addressed to the Government? Glitter envelopes? Fabulous handwriting?
