“For the last 30 years, the ho­mo­sex­ual agenda has been want­ing to de­sen­si­tize our com­mu­ni­ties, our chil­dren, our fam­i­lies.” – Genevieve Peters shouts anti-gay abuse dur­ing Drag Queen Story Time for chil­dren at a Cal­i­for­nian book­shop.

“[This] sex club [will] bring divine ret­ri­bu­tion against Le­banon.” – Le­banon’s former Grand Mufti, Sheikh Mohammed Rashid Qab­bani, or­ders the can­cel­la­tion of a so­cial event or­gan­ised by The Gen­der And Sex­u­al­ity Club at the Amer­i­can Uni­ver­sity of Beirut. That’s a bit shabby, Sheikh.

“We do not ac­cept LGBT but if [the West] want to ac­cept, that is their busi­ness. Don’t force it on us… Why should we fol­low that?” – Malaysian Prime Min­is­ter, Ma­hathir Mo­hamad (above), be­lieves Malaysians don’t de­serve “West­ern” things like… civil rights.

“We need more Pulse night­club in­ci­dents.” – An anony­mous let­ter sent to gay Philadel­phian politi­cian, Brian Sims, re­fer­ring to the Florida gay club shoot­ing in which killed 49 peo­ple were killed. Sims de­fi­antly shared the let­ter on so­cial me­dia.

“It is my duty as a white man to cull the weak and timid from ex­is­tence… Ho­mo­sex­u­als are a dis­ease to mankind and must be put down…” – Con­victed killer Peter Avse­new (above) in a let­ter at­tempt­ing to “ex­plain” why he killed a gay cou­ple in the US in 2010 and would again, given the chance. “These weren’t the first and they won’t be the last,” he wrote of his vic­tims.

Hun­gar­ian State Opera can­celled 15 shows af­ter the pa­per ac­cused the show of “ram­pant gay pro­pa­ganda”. The Book Of Mor­mon is not ex­pected to open there any time soon.

“As far as ho­mo­sex­u­al­ity goes, I believe the bi­ble puts the death penalty on it… It’s the gov­ern­ment’s job to ex­e­cute crim­i­nals… Ho­mo­sex­u­als are 50 more times likely to get AIDS… We got this AIDS thing spread­ing.” – Preacher, Matt Pow­ell takes to YouTube to spread Chris­tian val­ues like love, for­give­ness and com­pas­sion.

“I’ve never liked a grown man act­ing like a 12-year-old girl. I’ve al­ways found that to be quite dis­gust­ing… Noth­ing en­cap­su­lates the sissi­ness of a guy quite like the word ‘fag­got’… I have a fairly ro­bust re­sent­ment of the gay com­mu­nity.” – Mu­sic pro­ducer Pogo, aka Nick Bertke, in an on­line video. Af­ter it went vi­ral, he at­tempted to back­track, say­ing it was a “joke that went too far”.
