    why support a gay if you disrespect a 2 year girl by the name of SADIE SANDLER.

    You are a two faced hypocrite.

  2. 2

    Already boycotted it. Heading to whistler instead!

  3. 3

    yes everyone please boycott if i was there i would come on it is 2008 everyone has the right to get married.

    This is rather ironic because as a gay man, or even just as a human being, you would want equality for everyone. Yet you want us to boycott mormons because they took away our rights? Aren't you promoting the hatred you are trying to fight against?

  6. 6

    You really look ignorant Perez! Why don't you boycott the NBA or Pro Football?

  7. 7

    My hamster escaped from its little ball and my cat ate him

  8. 8

    but you like twilight and she is mormon… people were making valid points in the other twilight blogging.. you need to amke your mind up perezie

  9. 9

    Perez, you cry a lot don't you?

  10. 10

    i've never been to sundance. my southern california ass would probably melt.
    but i do love that channel though. but i guess i could only watch IFC which is equally good if not better.

  11. 11

    Perez, you dipshit! Do you not realize that not ALL Mormons are in favor of prop. 8? That's like saying ALL gays have AIDS or something. You're little "holier than thou" phase is getting really annoying. I realize this is your blog and you can post whatever you want, and I don't have to come here and boo fucking hoo…but you're on the fast track to losing alot of viewers on this site b/c of your constant pity party you keep throwing. Why don't YOU get out and do something about it instead of sitting on your now semi-fat ass and typing on your computer. You're preaching against hate and whining about how everybody is hating on the gays….and here you are hating on the Mormons. Again, not ALL Mormons are for this shit. You're just looking for someone to blame…as usual. You really are a shit stain, you know that??

  12. 12

    All the more reason to go. :)

  13. 13

    The fact of the matter is that the gays are scared of blacks and Latinos…it's real easy to boycott the whitest place on earth! I am so looking forward to seeing this all play out…who needs Hollywood when we have the ignorant antics of the gays…

    Why not add: "Be sure to boycott any black movies, black products, etc. because 70% of African Americans voted for Prop 8."

    Re: douche city – Youre little "holier than thou" phase…not you're!

    I will be there supporting the Mormons THANKS.

    your….fuck I can't spell today…

  19. 19

    Why don't they move the festival. Go to Colorado?

  20. 20

    You go Perez. Gay rights are the civil rights of the new century. Not going to Utah for any reason is the right thing to do. That means no vacations in Utah, no skiing, no nothing.

    Boycott Utah entirely!!!! Do not give money to the Mormons.

  21. 21

    Perez aren't you like over 30 years old? How about conducting yourself as such.

  22. 22

    i am not supporting your gays. i could give a fuck about u people.

  23. 23

    perez…can i just say that park city has NOTHING to do with mormans..yes they are in slc but if u remember u drive up the mountain to a cute little city..sundance has supported gays for a very long time so i think it is stupid that you would want to boycott them.

  24. Bdub says – reply to this


    Yawn. You are what you despise.

  25. 25

    You're a fucking moron. Utah does not equal Mormon. Not everything going on in Utah is sponsored by the Mormons. Robert Redford is not Mormon. That's like saying everything in Texas is connected with David Koresh because he happened to be there. Everything in Florida is connected to Ted Bundy because he murdered there. Follow your own reasoning….. I guess you have AIDS since all gays have AIDS so we need to boycott all gays. You were born with a brain, it's about time you started using it.

  26. 26

    What does poor Robert Redford and Sundance have to do with boycotting Mormons???

    I think you need to get through your dough head and the other dough heads that came up with that lame boycott. NOT EACH AND EVERY PERSON IN THE STATE OF UTAH are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. You just keeping pissing off the people who aren't members.

    So why should the non-Mormons lose their livelihood? Should the Mormons start wearing the Angel Moroni on their lapels so you can know which person to hate? I see a trend starting………

    Sad, sad. I've never seen such hate as what I see on this blog these days. That article is completely biased as is everything else you post these days. There is no reasoning with some people, so although it means nothing to anyone, I won't be supporting this site anymore. Best wishes.

  29. 29

    I'm against Prop 8 and everything, but whats boycotting Sundance gonna do? I don't believe it's run by Mormans, oh and not everyone in Utah is a mormon.

    perez, i usually like you, but you're being incredibly ignorant. here you are, bashing sundance because of mormons, and you site here and support twilight when it's author, Stephenie Meyer is A MORMON. What a hypocrite. I love Twilight, and I love Sundance, boycotting it will get you where exactly? You should want equality for ALL and here you are bashing mormons. What an ignorant person.

  32. 32

    You are one of the most unintelligent bloggers I have come across. I adored your quote by Thomas Jefferson, if only you understood it. The man owned slaves. Come on Mario. You are better than this.

    Re: urdumb – being 16, i love beauty and the beast as much as anyone. but i must say that if you are perez's age or close to it, you aren't really allowed to rag on someone's age seeing how you have a disney character as an avatar.

  34. 34

    Perez why do you keep picking on the Mormons???? Yes they are one religous group that doesnt support Gay Marriage. Read this.SACRAMENTO 7 November 2008 (This news release was issued by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Sacramento) The following statement was released today by Bishop William Weigand, head of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Sacramento and former Bishop of Salt Lake City, in response to attacks on (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) for supporting California’s Proposition 8, defending the traditional definition of marriage:

    “Catholics stand in solidarity with our Mormon brothers and sisters in support of traditional marriage — the union of one man and one woman — that has been the major building block of Western Civilization for millennia.

    So why dont you go and pickit at the other churches also??? There is more to this article but I cant post it all.

  35. 35

    Re: TwoGoofballs – Hence the reason I corrected myself…twice!

  36. 36

    Luckily people have more common sense than you do.

    There aren't many radical gays as you'd like to believe.

    Protesting against prop 8 and protesting against mormons you're going to find a different group of people.

    What about all the other states who hate gays? What about Alabama, TN, etc… what are you going to do about these states? They actually hate you without the mormom church. How are you going to gain their majority?

    "Sir Elton John has come forward saying he’s for Proposition 8, which bans gay marriages. He believes gay couples should stick to civil unions rather than getting married.

    Elton and his longtime partner David Furnish celebrated a civil union ceremony back in 2005. At the Elton John AIDS Foundation in NYC on Monday night, he said, “We’re not married. Let’s get that right. We have a civil partnership. I don’t want to be married. I’m very happy with a civil partnership. If gay people want to get married, or get together, they should have a civil partnership. The word marriage, I think, puts a lot of people off. You get the same equal rights that we do when we have a civil partnership. Heterosexual people get married. We can have civil partnerships.” "

    PEREZ!!! I love you but you are disappointing the shit out of me! Do you not read the posts? You have a lot of fans in SLC and to lump all Utahns in with Mormons is not cool at all. As a minority you should understand what it is like to be stereotyped based on a few bad apples. There are a lot of people in Utah who are NOT mormon who count on the film festival for business and to support local causes that have NOTHING to do with the damn church. Yes, I choose to live in Utah because I love it here and it is home, so I guess we have to figure we should be used to being punished for living in a state known for the minority religion. Utah has a lot more to offer than just prejudice and judgment Perez. Instead of taking the cowards way out and boycotting, why not show up and be proud of who you are? Where would the civil rights movement be today if Martin Luther King had not advised his followers to "sit in" restaurants that would not serve blacks? What if Rosa Parks had not taken a stand for her right to sit at the front of the bus? The church has nothing to do with Sundance, so by boycotting the festival you are letting them win. Why not have in an influx of those who are proud to be who they are and not afraid to show it? I don't understand you Perez.

  45. 45

    Yeah, so I get that the movie chain Cinemark is one of Sundance's biggest screening venues, and that Cinemark CEO donated big $ to Yes on 8. BUT Sundance can't pull out of the deal, and Sundance depends on money from the festival to support its programs and services!! You are going to be punishing the wrong people!! Not fair. Maybe if Sundance uses the Cinemark venue NEXT year, then you can protest. But it's so unfair to punish them now when its too late to pull out of the deal. Not cool, perez.

  46. Dabid says – reply to this


    Utah is only 50% Mormon with most Mormons outside the U.S. Boycotting Utah is idiotic because the vote was by mostly by non-Mormon Californians. You are barking up the wrong tree. Boycott the various homophobic hip-hop artists and rappers who impacted the 70% pro prop 8 vote.

  47. Watty says – reply to this


    Let me guess, you want to blame the massive fires in California on the mormons too. Stop trying to point fingers and stick it in your dumb ass. The majority has spoken Perez.

  48. 48

    i disagree, what about all the directors who worked so hard on their films?? why would you boycott them and their hard work??

  49. 49

    I've always wanted to go to Sundance, but since I won't be able to…I guess I'll just say I'm boycotting it lol

  50. 50

    okay - i don't understand why we should boycott it - it's the only big film festival in the usa (or one of them) that shows indie/underground movies, where they tackle gay issues

  51. 51

    I can't believe that on one side of your mouth you're saying to spew hate but on the other side, that's exactly what you're doing. I believe in gay marriage for all people but I don't blame the whole state of Utah for the CALIFORNIANS voting yes! Not to mention, not all Mormons believe the same thing. I think you are completely disrespecting a festival that honors a great man and has done a lot of good for independent films.

  52. 52

    all you are doing is taking away support from independent films and directors who have nothing to do with prop 8! What a STUPID idea!! Grow up!!

  53. 53

    Re: imuri86 – I'm in agreement with you imuri. I came on here to post something similar. I don't understand what is so wrong about people having an opinion about something. They don't agree with gay marriage and voted against it, it was their choice just as yours would be to vote for it. So why are you asking everyone to be the bad guy now and boycott them for a choice they are free in America to make? That sounds more like bullying people into making the same decisions as you… something America doesn't stand for.

  54. 54

    Boycotting the Sundance Film Festival is a stupid if not idiotic thing to do. Big deal, gays no longer have the right to marry in California. They should never have been given the right to marry in the 1st place. California should have just made it legal to marry your pet dog instead. People choose to be gay and should have rights because of it. Get over yourself Perez.

  55. 55

    Re: boston – haha. wouldn't we all? i'm glad you said it first

  56. 56

    PEREZ… i have always respected you and love your blog BUT your such a fucking dumb ass for this boycotting Sundance post!!!!!!!!!! MORMONS HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH SUNDANCE!!!!!!!!!! YOU'RE KINDA STARTING TO REMIND ME OF ELISABETH HASSELBECK BY NOT KNOWING YOUR FACTS!!!!!!!! I'M VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH YOU! :(

  57. 57

    why don't you just write HYPOCRITE on your forhead already?

  58. 58

    Re: justbecuz – I meant to say "shouldn't have rights".

  59. 59

    So… I'm probably a bit slow, but could you explain a bit about what Sundance has to do with Mormons and how boycotting it will punish them? Are they big sponsers or something…?

  60. 60

    I know Perez has lost readers due to this nonsense… I cannot take it anymore. LOL boycott mormons.. Perez, just because a bunch of queers agree to "boycott" mormons doesn't mean it's getting steam.. You are an idiot.

  61. 61

    Perez, you are seriously a moron sometimes.. you can be so dead on.. but then SO dead wrong at the same time. I live in Salt Lake City, SLC EVEN with the LDS church based here is a very open minded and more liberal city than people would think. Only 60% of people in the whole state of utah are mormon and the numbers are much less in the capitol city. Why punish our entire state because SOME of the people that live here are bigots!?

    I wish with my whole heart that prop 8 would not have been passed, a lot of us here in utah are outraged and sad about it and we are doing our part to protest with you.. funny enough, you left utah off the youtube list of videos of protests.. STOP BLAMING UTAH FOR THE PASSING OF PROP 8. THE STATE OF UTAH HAD NOTHING TO FUCKING DO WITH IT. Go after the LDS church all you want.. their hands are dirty for sure but stop encouraging people to protest and boycott a state and that states economy for something it was not involved in.

    For someone who is protesting hate… you are spewing a lot of it yourself.

  62. 62

    Re: justbecuz – I meant to say "shouldn't have rights"

  63. 63

    boycott cinemark!!

  64. 64

    Get over it already. Good Lord the Morons dont run Sundance. hmmmm and if you boycott Sundance, perhaps you should boycott buying any Paul Newman products because he had the nerve to start Sundance near all those Mormons.
    How about that for twisted stupid logic? Look in the mirror Perez.

    I wasnt going in the first place, because I am a poor ass american. But if I was, I would boycott it. BOOYA!

  69. 69

    way to brainwash the youth of america, Perez. I'm seriously pissed off at you now. Your ignorant and hypocritical and BIASED.

    how are you fighting hate with hate? How is really going to help your cause? IT DOESN'T. IT WON'T.

  70. 70

    Re: Village – You're pretty dumb. Mormons in Utah didn't even vote on Prop 8, stupid. Why not boycott California, huh? And all the blacks and latinos.

  71. 71

    Exactly… "Freedom for teh gays" Yet, when we see freedom in action "voting" all of a sudden it's not such a battle cry. As one reader said, why not boycott black churches? Or, latino places of business/worship? Because you are scared Mario plan and simply.. What a friggin hypocrite you are… This very well maybe your very own career suicide

  72. 72

    ….its this a gay rights webpage disduised as a celeberity news blog?…yeah, that's what I thought…….oh well, hope you enjoyed your 3 minutes of fame Pigez, too bad you sabatoged yourself with so much hate…well, hate directed at your audience as well as celebs…..

  73. 73

    Mormonism and Sundance are unrelated issues. Quit being a ridiculous prick. No on 8, yes to sundance.

  74. 74

    Why would you boycott a Film Festival. As a Film major I take major offense to this article.

    "You will support the Mormons if you go. You WILL support the taking away of equal rights for gays!"

    + So they are saying everyone that goes to the Sundance Film Festival automatically will support the taking away of equal rights? People need to get their partners dick out of their ass and go support the film festival for the ART of film FOR THE ART! No one understands the concept of art these days. Politics is being thrown into everything these days and it is fucking up our country and the people living within this fucked up country. Please, go support the ART of Sundance and the beauty that lies within the films shown and ENJOY! Have a good time and hang out with friends god damnit!

    Stop the HATE?!?! You are SUCH a HYPOCRITE PEREZ! You are HATING on the MORMONS….BUT OHHH NO STOP THE HATE…what a bunch of BULL CRAP.

  77. 77


    The Mormon must pay for all the pain they have caused the gay community.

    They spent over $25 million bucks on hateful lies broadcast on TV all over CA. This money was collected as charitable donations- but instead was used to propogate H8te and Lies.

    Do you know how many starving people could have been fed with that $25 Mil?

    Shame on the Mormons!! All Mormons of good conscience should resign from that "Church" immediately!!!!

  78. 78

    Mormons HATE the sundance film festival. Mormons are a lucky group they stopped the redefining of marriage and get rid of a festival they hate all in one.

  79. 79

    Re: MISS CLEO – Kinda like the way you fucked up the word "duml???" Never heard that one…

  80. 80

    honestly perez, i used to like you. but you're kind of a joke. you're uneducated and have no idea what you're talking about. stick to stealing other blogs' information about celebrities. thanks, bb.

  81. 81

    "Boycott the various homophobic hip-hop artists and rappers who impacted the 70% pro prop 8 vote. "

    Not true. 70% of blacks voted for Prop 8. California is only 5% black. They did not have a major impact on Prop 8 at all.

  82. 82


  83. 83

    oh, one more thing. i don't think yahoo news is a very credible source. when this boycott "catches steam" and it's featured in the new york times or the washington post, then i'll be impressed. for now, i think it's just you. so, uhhh, good luck with that.

  84. 84

    The organizers need to move the Sundance festival to another state. All the theaters there are owned by Cinemark. Bring Sundance to LA or San Francisco until mormons stop promoting hate across the nation. I'm going to be careful in everything I buy not to sponsor these cult of polygamist pedophiles. GET THE FUCK AWAY FROM MY STATE YOU HATEFUL BASTARDS!!!!

  85. 85

    boycotting sundance won't undo what was done in California. It may suck, but it happened, and you can't change that now. Be mature and strong so that next time this won't happen.

  86. 86

    Wow you've taken it to a whole new level of ignorance and immaturity. Stick to the gossip. Politics are not your forte.

  87. 87

    Perez, you're a tool. You're preaching to your readers like we're actually RICH enough to attend Sundance anyway ??? What about those of us who live in other countries?? This bullshit doesn't apply to your readers. The gay rights stuff is way out of hand - I am spending alot more time on TMZ lately coz I just can't stand to hear it anymore!! This site used to be fun, now you're just a bore trying to be a politician. Go back to the gossip Perez. Create a second site for all the Mormon bashing and gay propaganda.

  88. 88

    Re: Billvie Bicks

    and how does boycotting a festival the mormons hate and want to see gone help your cause?

  89. 89

    I assume the connection is : the Sundance Film festival is in Utah. And most Mormons live in Utah. But I don't see how boycotting one is going to hurt the other.
    I mean, most Mormons are conservative, unedumacated holier than thou hicks with their heads up their ass.
    No doubt, most Mormons have no clue what the ubeer-liberal, cutting-edge Sundance Film Festival is.

  90. 90

    No I will not boycott the Sundance
    One day the voters you are want to boycott you will find yourself needing to help pass the prop in 2 yrs.
    Maybe without you all at the Sundance it just MIGHT attract those folks who HAVE stayed away all this years…..

  91. 91

    In that case i'm packing my shit and heading to Sundance. Who gives a fuck about who voted yes on 8. Quit hating stupid queers. If we did the same if our side lost, you'd be annoyed. YES ON 8! GAYS CAN ONLY DATE! =]]

  92. 92

    Re: TwoGoofballs
    well, sure. i guess. lol

  93. 93

    Then you should also boycott Las Vegas–most of the politicians and movers and shakers are Mormon…although gambling, drinking and non-missionary sex between a married man and woman are "frowned upon". Go figure. Hypocrites.

  94. 94

    Why the HELL don't you work a little harder to change the definition of CIVIL UNION so it gets you what you want? stop trying to steal a word with historical and exact definition all ready? Every man and woman DOES have the right to get married. Gays have NEVER had that status. It isn't discrimination- it's because you are NOT a man and a woman. WORK HARDER to get your OWN word. You wouldn't DREAM of marching in a black neighborhood, would you? Go pick on Mormons- they don't scare you.

  95. 95


  96. 96



  97. 97


  98. 98


  99. 99

    maybe you all should boycott yourselves - and in fact that's exactly what perez is doing.
    by the way i agree elton john, and i don't know wheather this ridiculous fight is a fight for "civil rights" or "marriage" or if perez or whoever knows the difference (if there's one, basically not really).
    so, i'm doing what i really really want to do: i leave this site alone - i'm getting depressions by coming here.
    bye! good.
    just a reminder: i'm a fucking german, so please don't quantify my IQ with my spelling ; )
