- Video — R&B/Disco Goddess Thelma Houston at Omaha's Heartland Pride Festival: 'The change comes about... when you support people who support your cause...'
- KETV covers kerfuffle over Stothert's forthcoming appearance at Omaha Gay Pride event
The Omaha/Council Bluffs/Fremont/Bellevue Metropolitan Statistical Area has in excess of 885,000 people. An average of 23% of Americans are children under 18. Kinsey said back in the 50s that 4% of males and 2% of females are exclusively homosexual their entire lives.
Assuming (for the sake of convenience) a 50/50 male/female split, that would leave a potential local pool of up to 20,000 or so adult gay attendees at Heartland Pride last Friday, not including bisexuals and straights looking for a (rather sedate) party.
AKSARBENT still-framed the video above, taken between 9 and 10 p.m., and counted fewer than 100 people in front of Heartland Pride's stage. Perhaps another 50 were browsing the booths, probably a generous reckoning.
150 attendees out of a potential 20,000.
