Please explain!

I would appreciate it if someone would explain the meaning of "shame" in this context. Some people (like me) don't just "get it" when you put up a comment like this. Does it have to do with anti-"mainstream GLBT" liberal politics, or does it have to do with countering anti-queer groups and rhetoric? Or what? Tell more, if you're so into organizing this. Or if "gay shame" is a common term, then blame me for not having heard it before.

I'm not at all involved in the Boston organizing effort, but if you want to read a bit about what Gay Shame has been on the West Coast, here is a link to two articles from Alternet.org.
