    the rescinded invite was done at the behest of corporate sponsors.

    Which of course is speculation, assumption, whatever.

    I watched LGBT military groups launch loud, angry protest campaigns at SF pride. So I know it wasn't only corporate sponsors that were displeased, but a significant number of LGBT people.

    So, I don't suppose anyone can say with certainty who SF pride was attempting to placate.

    If it was our LGBT servicemembers and veterans, then I think they made the right decision.
