A gay politician should be able to attend an LGBTQ+ event without conservatives losing their minds, but here we are.

Scott Wiener is a current member of the California State Senate. The 53-year-old out gay politician is a Democrat and represents the 11 senatorial district, which includes San Francisco. All things considered, it shouldn’t be that shocking that he would attend the city’s annual Folsom Street Fair.

On Monday, September 25, Wiener shared a picture of himself wearing some leather and showing off his abs of steel while attending this year’s Folsom. While most people in the LGBTQ+ community were pleased to see a gay elected official attending the event, some conservatives were quick to criticize Wiener for being there.

Some of the negative comments under Wiener’s Folsom post suggest that the senator could be spending time looking for solutions to the issues in San Francisco. Alas, this criticism ignores all of the work Wiener has done since elected, as well as all of his other Instagram posts that show him working and advocating for his district.

Specifically, Wiener has been a high-profile advocate for solving the California housing shortage, which is a pretty significant issue in San Francisco. He’s also been advocating for better public transportation, new environmental laws, and access to medications that reduce the risk of HIV infection over the years.

It’s bizarre to see that progressive politicians can be so easily criticized for having personal lives and attending events that they’re interested in. Sharing a picture at Folsom Street Fair shouldn’t cause such a fuss among conservatives who disagree with Wiener’s politics, but that is unfortunately what’s still going on in 2023.

Thankfully, it seems like Scott Weiner doesn’t care about the criticism at all and will keep living his best authentic life. We stan!
