Counter Florida Family Associations Lies on Sordid Lives Show

The American Family Association's (AFA) Floridian chapter is trying to force advertisers to boycott the show Sordid Lives on Viacom's LGBT channel LOGO.

David Caton of the Florida Family Association issued the boycott because the show features "gender bending" and a dysfunctional Republican Baptist Texas family" According to a Florida Family release, the show depicts various members of the family as lesbian, homosexual, bi-sexual, and transgender."

One of the main stars of the show Jason Dottley responds to the allegations and calls for reverse activism:

Jason Dottley is asking us to contact the Florida Family Association over their lies and homophobia.

The show Sordid Lives and the LGBT channel LOGO would also benefit if you thank the shows advertisers for supporting the show, LOGO, and the gay community. Below are direct links to their respective contact forms.

Kodak, Bridgestone, Select Comfort, Vonage, Children's International, St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, Heat Surge TV.

The FFA has hidden the advertisers that they are targeting on their web page but I found a link to the active issues page which links to all their current email campaigns. This includes the ones directed at Logo. Here's the link -$TARGET%3d:ATID%3d:ISSUEID%3d:UID%3d875391:APP%3dGAC:SITEID%3d-1:VV_CULTURE%3den-us:DISPLAYNAME%3dDemp+Son:AID%3d704$
