I really want to know something.

YES the Twin Falls, Idaho!
This weekend is Western Days.
yesterday they had a parade, and the Southern Idaho Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgendered (and friends) Coumminuty Center had produced a float.
and was planning on entering it in the parade.
Until last saturday when they were informed that they were not permitted to enter their float in the parade due to it being a family oriented event.

Here are online versions of the articles in Today and Yesterday's Times-News
Here's from Saturday's paper.

My question is, HOW is that float inappropriate for a family event?
Is there anything that screams of anything that isn't family friendly?
Let me know what you think!
I really want to know
As comments come in I will be forwarding them to the GLBT leaders here in Twin
