Images of devices to be made available at a Washington party for homosexuals
Caution: The following contains a report on activities many will find objectionable.
A Washington, D.C., inaugural week event that originally was described in an e-mail as a “pig sex” event has been confirmed by a homosexual publication as opponents ask the public health department to investigate the threats from the sex activities that apparently will take place
WND reported the event was planned at a Washington hotel for three days culminating with Tuesday’s inauguration for President-elect Barack Obama. The first report came from Peter LaBarbera at Americans for Truth about Homosexuality, who obtained the information via e-mail from a source within the homosexual community.
“This Maneuvers is a PRIVATE and INVITATION-ONLY event. It will be held at the nearby Doubletree Hotel, located at 1515 Rhode Island Avenue NW. Go to the Second Floor, which is where all the Convention Rooms are,” said the instructions.
While hotel managers repeatedly have denied any such event is being held, a reporter for the Washington Blade confirmed in his report the plans for a “leather S&M party” at the hotel this weekend.
The Blade report said Larry Barat of Mid-Atlantic Leather (M.A.L.) Weekend confirmed a group that is co-sponsoring the organization’s convention is holding the event, and he described it to the Blade as a “play party.”
He said there are several such events scheduled. And he confirmed to the Blade the hotel is maintaining is support for the party.
The original e-mail about the event said, “We’ve now got a KILLER line up of DEMOS, including super skilled rope bondage, sounds play, and flogging. LIVE Music and Sound is gonna be provided by THE BLACK PARTY DJ Rich King. So you can s—, fist, rim, and [f—] TO THE BEAT.”
Among a variety of features were “a bondage cross,” “a flogging station” and “rimming stations.” LaBarbera said the references to “fist” and “rim” refer to specific homosexual behaviors, which he explains graphically on his website.
“Doors open at 10 p.m. and will close at 12 midnight. No admission after 12. Play continues until 4am. …” said the e-mail.
The requirements, AFTAH said, included, “Masculine, friendly, and ready to play. Spectators who wanna run their mouths and socialize are not welcome at this event. We are here to
enjoy the company of MEN.”
The online Urban Dictionary defines “pig sex” as “outrageously dirty such as water spots, defecation, male on male bondage, group-sex and bestiality,” although there was no indication that this event would involve animals.
LaBarbera said the hotel originally confirmed to him M.A.L. Maneuvers booked three second-floor conference rooms for three days, which starting with Saturday night’s events would culminate on inauguration day, Tuesday.
He also included a telephone number for the Doubletree Hotel, encouraging people to urge the Hilton chain, which owns the site, “to get out of the perversion business altogether.” The events reportedly are being held in concert with the annual “Mid-Atlantic Leather Weekend,” three days of sadomasochistic celebration in Washington.
However, hotel officials made several statements to various callers denying that the event was being held. There was no response to multiple WND messages and e-mails requesting a comment.
But Matt Barber, director of cultural affairs for Liberty Alliance Action and Liberty Counsel, said he had contacted health officials about the event.
“It’s simply inexcusable that the Doubletree would place at risk the health of its staff and future guests by facilitating this orgy in rooms where food is served,” said Barber. He said hotel staff members apparently will be tasked with cleaning up “the various forms of potential infectious biological waste left behind.’
“I have therefore notified the Washington D.C. Department of Health about the planned Doubletree orgy. The representative I spoke with was stunned and told me that the matter would be immediately investigated. I also notified the Washington Metropolitan Police Department, which will be looking into possible criminal violations should the Doubletree go forward with the event,” he confirmed.
Christian activist Navy Chaplain Gordon Klingenschmitt also weighed in on the issue, first getting a denial from hotel officials that the event existed. He then talked with workers in several of the hotel offices, getting confirmation of the plans.
“Let us pray for our nation’s safety and repentance, during these days when Sodom and Gomorrah have been unleashed upon Washington, D.C.,” he said.
The issue already has generated hate mail for LaBarbera.
“I know that when you die, you’ll be going to the farthest pit
of hell, and no matter how much you beg, I’ll never forgive you. … When you
play with fire, you get burned. And sometimes, the flames don’t get put out
in time,” one message said.
LaBarbera previously has reported on “Leather” events held annually at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago and has criticized the company for its “long history of enabling and profiting off of the hyper-promiscuous ‘leather’ movement by hosting the annual sadomasochistic ‘International Mr. Leather’ conference.”
Obama, during his campaign and since the election, repeatedly has affirmed his support for homosexual rights, and his aides have said that they expect him to announce he will lift the ban on open homosexuality in the U.S. military almost as soon as he is sworn into office.
WND also reported when LaBarbera and others documented public homosexual sex events at the annual Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco.

“It is no coincidence that the man who took it upon himself four years ago to illegally and radically redefine marriage – Mayor Gavin Newsom – now enthusiastically welcomes the Folsom Street with its public depravities – an event that makes San Francisco a subject of ridicule and opprobrium the world over,” LaBarbera said about the 2008 event.
The festival, which celebrates deviant sex, including homosexual activities, has turned in recent years into a daylong showing of nudity and public sex acts with promotions of the unnatural and pornographic – all on the public streets of San Francisco with formal approval from Newsom.
“Entry signs to the fair said, ‘Nudity is illegal,’ but thousands of people took advantage of the fact that nudity and decency laws were not enforced by the police,” said LaBarbera’s report on the 2008 event.
He published several edited photographs documenting the rampant exhibitionism and nudity.
WND also has reported on a similar festival, called “Up Your Alley,” in which police took no action to enforce decency laws. The behavior was documented in photographs of the event, which was sponsored by the same group that organizes the Folsom Street Fair.
