During an interview with Mardi Gras co-chair Pete Urmson, Wilson said some of the spectacles in Saturday’s parade were almost “an exploitation” of a sexual image and that “there’s a difference between colourful and disgusting”.
Mr Burns tonight night said he would lodge a complaint with the NSW Anti-Discrimination Board.
“Ron Wilson referring to homosexual people as ‘disgusting’ via a public act (in this case, television) breaches the NSW Anti-Discrimination Act,” he said in a media release.
“The Mardi Gras may not be everyone’s cup of tea but surely diversity on a night like this is acceptable.”
