All revolutionary movements seek to sanctify their lawless behaviour as a spontaneous eruption of righteous fury. In some cases, such as the Euromaidan movement in Ukraine, this conceit is justified.

The fake posters caused instant confusion, Bowman explains, because the Human Dignity Coalition is the group that has organized Central Oregon Pride for the past 14 years. The organization had already posted the legitimate festival posters around town days earlier. He used to show up with a sign. We thought he would only walk 10 blocks and then want to quit.

There is an unusually high concentration of gay or lesbian workers in certain occupations. For example, both gay men and lesbians and are overrepresented in psychology, law, social work, and university teaching.
