Lawyer who called judge a “fat f*g” swears he’s “not a bigot” because he has a gay cousin

A lawyer from Colorado insists he’s “not a bigot” despite calling a judge an antigay slur. Instead, he says, he’s “simply not politically correct.” Robert Abrams just had his law license suspended and has been ordered to participate in sensitivity training after calling a judge a “gay fat f*g” in an email to two of his clients. According to court documents, Abrams made the homophobic and fatphobic remarks about Judge Phillip Douglass in an email to a couple he was representing in a construction...

Pro golfer Scott Piercy’s homophobia cost him $2 million and heavy dose of public humiliation

Pro golfer Scott Piercy has been bleeding sponsors ever since he published a homophobic meme mocking Pete Buttigieg. Now, it’s being reported his actions have cost him a not-so-small fortune and will likely continue costing him even more in the future. It all started earlier this month when the 41-year-old shared a meme featuring alt-right icon Pepe the Frog and a picture of Buttigieg along with the caption, “Peter pulls out early from behind.” A backlash ensued, and Piercy, who has played prof...

Antigay preacher sued for selling fake coronavirus cure

  For years, televangelist/convicted fraudster Jim Bakker, the former husband of Tammy Faye Bakker, has made his living by spewing homophobic vitriol and other nonsense to thousands of people every Sunday morning. Recently, to supplement his income, the 80-year-old began promoting “Silver Solution,” a fake medicine that he claims can cure the coronavirus. The FDA and the New York Attorney General’s Office just sent Bakker a cease and desist letter demanding he stop selling the snake oil. AdBri...

DA refuses to say why he prosecuted an innocent gay man as a sex offender

Todd Spitzer is the Orange County District Attorney. Last September, he penned an op-ed declaring that hate had “no place” in Orange County, California. Then, three months later, his office tried turning an innocent gay man into a lifelong sex offender after he was targeted by police during a homophobic sting operation. It all started in January 2017. Tri Phan, who until then had no criminal record, stopped into Romantix, an adult bookstore in Garden Grove, California. He went into the bookstor...

Pro golfer Scott Piercy bleeding sponsors after taking homophobic swing at Pete Buttigieg

Pro golfer Scott Piercy issued an apology for publishing a homophobic meme mocking Democratic Presidential Candidate and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg earlier this week, but apparently that wasn’t enough to keep several of his sponsors from jumping ship. On Monday, 41-year-old Piercy, who has played professional golf with the PGA since 2008, published a meme featuring alt-right icon Pepe the Frog and a picture of Buttigieg along with the caption, “Peter pulls out early from behind.” A backla...

Instead of apologizing to the gays, Wendy Williams needs to fix herself

What a girl wants depends on the girl, and what Wendy Williams really really wants is as obvious as the Trump administration’s anti-LGBTQ agenda: She wants traditional gender roles. She wants to wear men’s shirts, short skirts, to color her hair, do what she dares. She wants a man who makes her feel like a woman. But then, who needs men at all on Galentine’s Day? During the February 13 episode of her eponymous daytime talk show, Wendy explained the Parks and Recreations twist on Valentine’s Day...

Chaos erupts inside Virginia Legislature as psycho pastor rails against gay people in opening prayer

Chaos erupted inside the Virginia State Legislature this week when a local pastor unleashed a seven-minute homophobic diatribe on the House floor. Rev. Robert Grant Jr. of the Father’s Way Church in Warrenton, Virginia was invited to give the opening prayer for the legislative session. Generally speaking, the ceremonial prayer is meant to be nonpolitical and appeal to a broad number of faiths and backgrounds. Evidently, Grant didn’t get that memo. Or, rather, he just didn’t care.

University shrugs off student who burst into LGBTQ Studies class to distribute antigay pamphlets

University of Louisville President Neeli Bendapudi says the school has “much work to do” when it comes to making LGBTQ students feel safe on campus after a student burst into an LGBTQ Studies class and began handing out antigay literature… Just don’t ask her to do any of that work. It’s not in her $900,000 job description. The disturbing incident happened last week. Associate professor Kaila Story was in the middle of a lecture during her Introduction to LGBTQ Studies class when the student, wh...

Another antigay pastor and popular conversion therapist accused of underage sex crimes

A retired pastor from Australia who used to run the country’s most popular gay conversion clinic has just been charged with sexually assaulting an underage boy. Former Rev.

South Dakota just proposed a bill that would eliminate all LGBTQ rights and protections

While other states have been slowly chipping away at LGBTQ rights little by little over the past few years, South Dakota has decided to do it all in one fell swoop. Republican lawmakers in the Mouth Rushmore State just introduced HB 1215, which opponents say is the most damaging, most comprehensive, most retrogressive anti-LGBTQ bill in history. Rep. Tony Randolph, a Republican from Rapid City who holds a 100% rating with the antigay hate group Family Heritage Alliance, introduced the bill last...

Councilmembers decide to keep 1996 resolution denouncing homosexuality

Change happens slowly. But it happens even slower in Greenville County, South Carolina. Members of the Greenville County Council have just decided they won’t rescind a 1996 resolution that denounces homosexuality because they’ve got more important things to do. Upstate Pride SC, a local LGBTQ nonprofit, has been pushing for the council to strip the homophobic resolution from the books for months.

Kanye West to headline antigay hate conference with nation’s leading Christian extremists

Rapper-turned-born-again-Trump-devotee Kanye West will reportedly perform at Awaken 2020, an antigay prayer rally being held in Arizona over the weekend.

Antigay lawmaker muses on going “elbow deep” with gay people to “plant a seed… oozing with love”

It’s 2020 and the Senate Majority Leader from Minnesota still thinks sexual assault and bad parenting turn children gay and that conversion therapy is a positive thing that more people should explore. In a newly resurfaced interview with Christian extremist/televangelist Andrew Wommack, Sen. Paul Gazelka makes a number of outdated and, frankly, ludicrous claims about LGBTQ people. Gazelka, who once sent his own daughter to a “pray the gay away” clinic, gave the hour-long interview back in Novem...

Tennessee kicks off 2020 by passing a bill that allows adoption agencies to deny same-sex couples

It’s a new year and a new decade. The future is racing forward. But lawmakers in Tennessee are hellbent on returning to the past. The Tennessee state Senate kicked off its 2020 legislative session by passing its very first bill of the year: a new measure that grants religious adoption agencies the legal right to discriminate against same-sex couples. The bill, sponsored by Sen. Paul Rose, declares that licensed adoption agencies can deny eligible candidates from adopting if they “violate the ag...

Senator who proposed making the word “homosexuality” illegal says she’s being misinterpreted

24 hours after causing a national uproar, that antigay Arizona lawmaker who wants to outlaw the word “homosexuality” is backing down, but she wants everyone to know that they’ve “misinterpreted” her intentions. Earlier this week, State Senator Sylvia Allen, a Republican from the town of Snowflake, proposed a bill that would scrub the word “homosexuality” from all teaching materials used by schools.

State Senator Sylvia Allen, a Republican from the town of, wait for it, Snowflake, has just proposed a bill that would scrub the word “homosexuality” from all teaching materials used by schools. Though she hasn’t given any specific reason for why she wants the word outlawed, opponents believe it’s an attempt to undo the 2019 repeal of Arizona’s “no promo homo” law, a decades-old law tha...

Church OK with monk telling gay people to die but it takes issue with him trashing the Pope

A homophobic monk has been excommunicated from Catholic church not because for his vehemently antigay actions, which have resulted in at least one hate crime conviction, but because he trash talked the Pope in a blog post. Damon Jonah Kelly was kicked out of the church by the Bishop of Argyll and the Isles after he wrote a scathing post attacking Pope Francis for “behaving in an ambiguous fashion towards homosexuals” and calling him a “great heretic.” According to The Scottish Sun, Kelly, a sel...
