Queen Sofía of Spain Wants you to Know She’s not Really into the Gay Thing

As if having a rubber-made version of the Infanta Leonor weren’t enough, Spaniards now have a yet more interesting way to amuse themselves.

The Queen Up Close, the best-selling book by Spaniard writer Pilar Urbano, has given them a very close look at the queen’s views on everything from gay rights and abortion to black presidents and Fidel Castro. Among my personal favorites:

“I respect other people’s different sexual orientations but I don’t understand why they should feel proud to be gay.”

“That they [the gay people] get up on floats and parade in the streets? If all of us who are not gay were to parade in the streets, we’d halt the traffic in every city.”

“I am so happy for Obama. It’s always good to see that a black guy can make it that far.”

In all honesty, I wouldn’t mind the traffic… I’d love to see her and her Royal familia atop a float on non-Gay Parade showcasing their heterosexual pride.

God bless la madre patria!

  1. If all of us who are not gay were to parade in the streets, we’d halt the traffic in every city.”

    — Uh, has Her Majesty been on the Metro lately, or had to commute in rush hour? Damn heteros blocking the streets!
