Cause we're so uninspired, so sick and tired, of all the hatred you harbour



I usually post something similar to this around 17th May - the International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHO). However it seems, according to a clutch of recent news reports, that a backlash appears to be happening against gay rights right now. It will only succeed if we let it!

First they came for the Jews
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left
to speak out for me.


To all the homophobes in...

...Uganda and Nigeria...

...Russia...

...and today, France...

I say...



Support Human Rights Watch - every little helps.

    1. Ah yes, I read that, too (it was in Yorkshire, not Wales) - I was heartened by the fact that the prospective passengers gave him hell for his homophobic attitude, but I agree he should have had more than a mere "disciplinary" and "diversity training"... Jx
