Richard Fierro

Is he gay?

Not that we know. Most definitely invited to the cookout though.

by Anonymousreply 1November 22, 2022 4:17 PM

Married to a woman.

He was there for a birthday party with his wife, his daughter, and his daughter’s boyfriend who was killed.

We ❤️ our vets!

You always hear about the mouth-breathing, right wing vets. But there are just as many vets - men and women, not gay - who are good, upstanding people with integrity. Like this guy.

One of his daughter's friends was performing in the drag show.

What are the odds that someone like him would have been there. Amazing man.

Richard Fierro should be a Grand Marshal at many a Pride 2023 parade.

Much love, too, for the stiletto-wearing performer who stomped the killer.

He did the right thing when our own lawmakers can’t even keep us safe!

A true hero. Weird it’s a straight married guy - but meaningful to the right wingers who think gay bars are bastions of sinners.

by Anonymousreply 8November 22, 2022 4:34 PM

I would like to believe that Fierro will encourage people to finally engage their brains, cease and desist stereotyping to agenda. As a poster did on the "No Photos" thread, characterizing Colorado Springs as

[quote] a military encampment also full of military and compatriot retirees and other right-wing creeps.

And yet it was one of those "right-wing creeps" who was a hero.

The daughter's "boyfriend" looks trans.

Don't know his politics -but he's clearly not a "right-wing creep" since he was there in the first place. Let's not fall into the trap our enemies use -tarring everyone with one brush. You can be conservative without being a hater. You can be a liberal and still be homophobic. You know a man by his actions, and Richard Fierro is a good man.

He said he was just trying to save his family - and in that moment, everyone in that club was his family. (i did not add that part, was paraphrasing).

The man is a fucking warrior. Equal parts heart and valor.

R16 "Ally" is erroneous assumption. Fierro didn't take down Anderson because he was an "ally". Fierro took down Anderson to protect his wife, daughter and as a former soldier, because that was what he was trained to do.

by Anonymousreply 21November 22, 2022 5:17 PM

Good reminder that men have an important place in society and it's okay to acknowledge this.

I know it's easy to denigrate and challenge "toxic" masculinity - often for very valid reasons. Very valid reasons.

But we also do things like what this man did. And, yes, I do believe it was his inherent "maleness" that gave him the balls (ha!) to act the way he did.

by Anonymousreply 22November 22, 2022 5:20 PM

[quote]"Ally" is erroneous assumption.

Bullshit. All of his comments to the press have proven otherwise. He was there to support his daughter and his daughter’s boyfriend, who was performing in a drag show.

A straight guy at a gay bar supporting his daughter and her boyfriend. What would you assume, he’s an enemy?

JFC.

His attending the show equals him being a supportive ally, r12.

Which one of the dead is the boyfriend? The black guy or the bartender Derrick Rump?

Per usual no mention of the gays in the club, only the trannies and straights.

“Kassy’s mother, Jess, is Colorado’s very first female Head Brewer! She’s also well known for creating Colorado’s first Latina-owned brewing company. Atrevida Beer Co is a female-forward brewery, aiming to produce unique flavors that challenge consumers’ perspectives of craft beers. They promote their beliefs with the slogan, “Diversity, It’s on Tap!” If you’d like to learn more about Atrevida, click the link below to check out their website.”

I would say he’s an ally. His wife is Colorado’s first female head brewer and he had said in some other articles that his wife and daughter do the majority of the work in the brewery. He isn’t hung up on stereotypes about masculinity. The daughter’s boyfriend wasn’t either. He had never been to a gay bar before but he was there that night, dancing and having fun with everyone else.

Some of you will never have the guts to admit you're the "both sides" stench on DL going on for several years now, because that would take a modicum of decency and introspection. It isn't progressives who are currently demeaning him for what he did. Many high-profile scumbags on the right are saying he shamed the uniform for even having been there.

It isn't anyone on the left who caused what happened. I have issues with trans, but nothing they have done could ever justify what happened...but FOX will make sure that you think it's justified. Some of you really are just idiots for thinking you look "rational" when you pull the "both sides" Bill Maher stupidity. No, a drag queen doing storytime is not the same as someone who goes to mass murder people because he thinks all gays are groomers because the right-wing told him so.:

R23 Fierro was there to support his daughter, not her boyfriend (who was not performing) or her friend (who was performing. Again, his defensive action was to protect his wife/daughter. That does not necessarily make him an "ally", a word you R30 R33 should look up. People can and sometimes do do heroic things without necessarily subscribing to or supporting the political/ideological notions of the people they've helped. It's called being a human being, not an "ally".

"Enemy" is your erroneous assumption, neither implied nor asserted.

He's been very careful in interviews not to reveal his politics. On MSNBC tonight, he did show a few signs of being a Republican/MAGA, but he had a good, inlusive message about being supportive of everyone, so I don't know.

What R35 R36 R37 fails to realize is that it's his identical mindless anger/scapegoating that drove Aldrich to murder 5 and wound 18.

Raymond Green Vance was the long time boyfriend of Kassy Fierro.

The dead included one straight man, one straight woman, one gay man, one trans man, and one trans woman.

R39, he’s probably careful not to reveal his politics on tv because he lives in a country that is Republican and pro gun and clearly contains some violent extremists.

But the motto of his brewery is Diversity on Tap, and it’s predominantly run by his wife and daughter. His wife is the first female head brewer in Colorado, and his daughter, who is over 21, is also very active in the brewery.

He’s said that the whole family, though straight, views supporting gay rights as a pro-community activity and that they attend Pride.

He's co-owner of the biz with his wife. Women-owned businesses in Colorado get perks and tax benefits so I wouldn't get too excited about her status.

“. Jess summed up her philosophy with the name "Atrevida," which translates as “daring” and is usually used in Mexican Spanish as a term of grudging respect for women who do what they’re not supposed to.“

Fierro means “Iron” in Spanish :)
